The Lötschental Legend Trail is ideal for families and takes hikers and walkers from the Lauchernalp mountain station up to the Fafleralp. Ten different legends on tree trunks take hikers into a mysterious world of myths and fairytales. Each distinctive stone, idyllic lake or mountain hut has its own legend and, against this impressive backdrop, hikers can learn about these legends. So-called QR codes can now be found on the tree trunks. If you scan these codes with your Smartphone (QR scanner apps can be downloaded free of charge in the App Store or Google Play Store), you can also read the legends in English, French and German conveniently on your own mobile phone.
