On the “Senda da Gianna” you’ll be following brave little goatherd Gianna and her story step by step. She has to find the young holiday guest Karl, who has lost his way in the forest of God Laret. Will she find him?

You start the Sils fairytale trail at the Alpenrose heading towards the barichröls boathouse. Gianna’s story, which is based on the children's book by Claudia Garigiet, is told on wooden panels. 

Made for children from the age of five, it’s a special family treat for anyone who likes to marvel and be astonished.
