The first section of the Walser Legend Trail leads via Rotaboda to the hamlet of Masescha, the first religious centre of the Walser immigrants in the 13th century. They carried out intensive clearance work to obtain crop-growing land, thereby shaping the agricultural landscape. Stables and haysheds bear witness to former farming methods.
The second high-altitude section leads to the Studa recreation area with a large wooden effigy of the Giant of Guflina and a barbecue grill. The third section curves back into Triesenberg village centre.
A visit to the Walser Museum before the walk gives visitors a better understanding of the life of the Walsers who resided here.
A richly illustrated 66-page brochure supplies background information on the route, the agricultural landscape, the history of the commune of Triesenberg and on Triesenberg's legends (available in the Walser Museum).
