Starting point: community hall 
Character: The Researcher’s Trail connects, with very little altitude difference, the Wasserwandersteig (Water Trail) with the Faltriweg trail no. 34. It leads for the most part through forests. Artfully depicted figures provide for surprises here and there and especially at the big tree house there is lots to research and discover. But the motto is: keep your eyes wide open!
Walking time: 1 hour; Ladis - start (via Wasserwandersteig) approx. 1 hour; Fiss - Wolfsee - Bertas Indianerland - below Weiberkessel - start: approx. 1 hour.

Description: Go along the Wasserwandersteig (Water Trail) as far as the Tuffgrotte or from the Villa (L016) down the same route. If you’re coming from below, you turn off the Wasserwandersteig to the left (L011) and soon bump into the first surprises. Go along an old forest track for a short bit to the left, then turn back to the right at the giant snail. One surprise follows another, particularly the several storey tree house invites parents and children alike to continue the experiments of the wacky researcher. Just after the bear cave, you reach Faltriweg trail no. 34, on which you stroll easily down to the Weiberkessl and back to Ladis (L006).

Once all the puzzles have been solved, children can collect their certificate at the following locations:

  • At the tourist information offices of the Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis Tourist Board
  • At the Sonnenburg family restaurant
