  • One of the most beautiful and peaceful place in Switzerland. When I visited it was secluded, ideal if you love to be alone. Didn’t had the time to go for the trails. Would love to do it someday.
  • Just what we needed. Might need sunblock. Bring plenty of water and a light snack for trail. Some trails have steep stepping. Bathrooms are nice. Food available to buy at the top.
