Homeland path “Gemeinsame Heimat“

A new border-crossing themed trail via the Helm (Sillian - Sexten). The Homeland Path (route no. 473) was constructed to mark Tyrol’s commemorative year 1809-2009 in conjunction with Schützenkom­panien Sillian, Innichen and Sexten and Sillian OEAV Section, along with AVS Section Drei Zinnen and links the two towns of Sillian and Sexten. Along the themed trail whose highest point is the Helm at 2433 metres, there are numerous notice boards and statio­ns based around the themes of nature, culture and history.

You can also get to the popular Carnic altitude trail (403) via the Homeland Path. Here at the start of the Carnic ridge it is not just three cultural circles which meet – the Germanic, Slavic and Roman –geological realms encounter each other too. What was once beneath the ocean bed, today forms high mountain ridges, which millions of years ago had been deposited as mud in the deep sea; today these provide sturdy handholds for climbing – since it is very old and there are a variety of rare geological features, the Carnic ridge is one of the most important geological regions on earth.
