A legendary hike over the high plateau of the Lüsen Alps
Beatiful family hike from Lüsen Berg over the Lüsen Alps to the parking lot Schweiger Böden.
Countless legends about miraculous figures, which have been handed down for many generations, lie around the Lüsen Alps.
Here, some of them are prepared in a family-friendly way by means of billboards.

The possibility to start the journey to Herol and the return from Schweiger Böden by our hiking bus makes this hike an ideal family excursion.
