Activities and purpose

The project

Trade routes have been crossing the Alps since the Stone Age, forming the cornerstone of Europe’s economic development. In addition to the trade in goods, there was also an important transfer of knowledge and culture. On the basis of this history, a new, sustainable, bookable long-distance hiking trail is being developed on existing paths, taking into account public travel to and from the route. The cultural heritage of the Cramars* and the Samer** will be brought to life during a slow-paced long-distance hike through impressive natural and cultural landscapes. * Cramars, the itinerant traders of Italy ** Samer, the medieval transporters and itinerant traders in Austria
