|Good for getting in
form, steep, zigzagging walk from the end of the valley up to the
|This is the first
walk you'll take if you're not in shape when you arrive. It's pretty
and shaded and cool and easy, good for a hot, calm Ruhetag (rest day).
|Our favorite. With
the Totalp and the view into Switzerland, what more could you ask?
Wonderful flowers? You got 'em.
|A nice, shady walk
along a stream to a natural spring, the Glingabrunnen; good for a hot

leading up to one of the most sympathique huts of the area.
|The Saulajoch is a
flat pass, unlike the ridge of the Amatschonjoch, with many beautiful

energy, you can climb the Saulakopf.
