|My name is Nix the Witch, and I live in the Alpe di Siusi holiday area all year round. |
I love to hike on Europe‘s largest mountain pasture and around the villages below the mount Sciliar and mount Catinaccio.
I stepped off my broom for a while especially for you, and tried out the most exciting and adventurous hikes. And just to make
extra-sure that it doesn’t get boring, there are also lots of secret tips, exciting stories, legends and riddles to solve.
Pack your hiking book away in your backpack, lace up your hiking boots and off we go!
I wish you lots of fun in your expeditions!
~ Yours, Nix the Witch
Checkpoint mission with Nix the Witch
Inside the booklet you will find a hiking bracelet with ten 10 different symbols. On each hike, there is a checkpoint
where you can stamp your bracelet. These checkpoints are shown on the maps on the following pages. When you arrive at each checkpoint, you will find a ticket puncher with one of these symbols. Use it to stamp the corresponding symbol on your bracelet.The aim is to collect as many stamps as possible.
Depending on the number of stamps you have collected, you will receive a great prize and a hiking diploma when you hand in your hiking braceletin the information offices:
- If you have collected 3 stamps, you will receive a bronze hiking diploma,
- for 5 stamps a silver diploma,
- and if you have stamped all 10 symbols, you’ve earned the gold.
If you haven’t been able to stamp all your symbols this year, you can carry on your mission next year. The bracelet, however, can only be given out once. From beginning of August 2018, the booklet is available in the Tourist Offices of the Alpe di Siusi holiday area. The proceeds from the sale will be donated to the non-profit association "Südtiroler Kinderdorf".
