Splendid circular hike above the heights of Triesenberg along largely traffic-free roads and grassed footpaths.
High above the Rhine Valley we visit the most beautiful settlement sites of the Walser who migrated to this area 700 years ago: The listed Prufatscheng Farmstead, the Masescha Sun Terrace with the Theodul Chapel, the magnificent Gnalp and Mitätsch recessed meadows and the Steinort settlement. The almost level “Philosophers’ Path” connects the sun-drenched settlement of Masescha with the mountain meadows of Mitätsch and the old Walser Hay Barns. This hike is especially enchanting when the meadows are in flower or when autumn mists lie over the Rhine valley below.
Descent from Steinort to the Hamlet of Wangerberg and onwards through forest and meadows to Triesen (distance: 2.6 km).
Diversion to the nearby settlements of Silum, Alpelti, Matu or Gaflei.
Family tip: Visit to the Walser Folklore Museum in Triesenberg.
