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.

Description

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
