Welcome to the magnificent hiking area
Many marked hiking paths lead you through a unique area with majestic mountains, blooming Alpine meadows, fragrant forests, torrential streams and clear mountain lakes. With a little bit of luck, you will see some chamois and ibex making their daredevil leaps across the steep rock faces or whistling marmots at the side of the trail. You can get to the starting points easily and get back home from many places without a car.
