Description

Den Europaweg zwischen Grächen und Zermatt halten manche für die schönste 2-Tageswanderung in den Alpen. Die Sicht auf das Bergpanorama inklusive Matterhorn haben ihn weltweit bekannt gemacht. Diese atemberaubende Natur haben die Verantwortlichen der Gemeinden St. Niklaus, Grächen, Randa, Täsch und Zermatt 1997 genutzt und den Europaweg erstellt. Er führt von Grächen über Gasenried zum Grat, von dort hoch über dem Mattertal nach Süden zur Europahütte in Randa, weiter auf die Täschalpe und schliesslich nach Zermatt.
Stages:

1. Zermatt - Europahütte (8h)

Sunnegga - Tufteren - Täschalp - until the turnoff for the Kin Hut - Randa village - Europa Hut

 

2. Europa Hut - Grächen (6h 20)
