Tour description

Right behind the church of Oberwald the romantic snow-shoe trail leads from everyday hustle away to the seclusion of the snowy mountain forests. Reaching the highest point of the tour in the midst of a silent clearing you are invited to a refreshing break at the Hotel / Restaurant Rhonequelle. Before passing the “Pischewald” as a gateway back to civilization, take a breather at the legendary Chapel St. Niklaus, with sweeping views across the Rhone Valley.
