The villages of Lech, Schröcken and Warth are typical Walser settlements. In the 14th century, the Tannberg area was populated by the Walsers, who came from the West Swiss canton of Valais. In cultivating the alpine terrain, these pioneers developed a first-rate, fascinating cultivated landscape. Robust benches point out the stations along the trail. A book is available which describes the objects that tell the history of the Walser settlers on the Tannberg.
