Tour description

This trail was created in 1996 in honour of author Dr Carl Zuckmayer. Along the way, five serpentine rocks present quotations from the speech German-born Zuckmayer made when he became a citizen of Saas-Fee. The trail leads from Zuckmayer’s former home, Haus Vogelweid, to Bärenfalle and then on to Melchboden. The ascent ends at Café Alpenblick, which lies in the middle of the larch forest on the sunny slopes of the Hannig. The descent begins from behind Café Alpenblick and follows a zigzag path that then leads north. This section offers spectacular views over Saas-Fee and leads to Honeggu, located just above Saas-Fee on the outskirts of the village. From here, the path branches off towards Wildi and leads hikers back to the start ponint at Haus Vogelweid.
