Turn-by-turn directions

Turn onto the Westeggweg starting at the right side of the Casino and stay on the trail until just before the edge of the forest at the entrance to Westeggtobel. Here the high trail branches off sharpl to the right and into the valley. We stay on this trail and walk through woods and meadows to the foot of the Gehrenhang where we find a nice resting place with foot baths and deck chairs.

We cross the Gehrenhang until just before the Gehrentobel, now turn to the right down to the Zwerbach and follow the brook through the beautiful beech forest. When we reach the Walserstraße at the parking of the Kanzelwandbahn in order to reach the casino after a short while.
