The panorama reflects the topography: the valley floor is deep, the mountains all around extremely high. The views of the Breithorn and Klein Matterhorn are enchanting. A good opportunity to observe the mountain forest close up.

The path leads past the old houses of the village, then continues along a relatively flat stretch before climbing through the mountain woods. There’s no rush: the forest invites visitors to get to know its inhabitants. Who will spot the first roe deer?   Where are the playful squirrels? Who can see a nutcracker, pecking among the leaves on the forest floor? Ideal for families.

  • Wildlife including roe deer
  • Appropriate for children from age 6
  • Mixed forest with Swiss stone pine and larch

Author’s recommendation

Make a stop at the brigde Mettelbrücke where you can find a “Schweizer Familie” fireplace and enjoy roasting a Cervelat.

Safety information

  • Plan every mountain tour carefully and adapt to participants’ fitness level as well as the weather and season.
  • Weather conditions can change quickly in the mountains. Appropriate clothing is therefore essential, along with adequate supplies of food and water. In uncertain weather, turn back in good time.
  • Inform others of planned route, and whenever possible avoid going alone.
  • Do not leave the marked routes; do not venture onto glaciers without a mountain guide.
  • Please be considerate to other walkers and to plants and animals.
  • Take note of the warning signs drawing attention to the constant danger in river beds and along watercourses below dams and reservoirs.
  • Beware: railway crossing
