Rather decent hike into the Swiss National Park. This area belongs to the places, where people can see a huge number of wild aminlas like deers, mountain goats and ibex. This tour ist also suitable on a bad weather day and is highly recommended to all nature lovers.

This hike is one of the most famous hikes into the Swiss National Park. In particular in autumn/fall time, when you can watch and listen to the "Brunft" of the deers. This hike also leads as a little round tour through the park and offers various pciknick places. But most important here is the view and the observation of the wild animals you can see here on the mountains around this valley. Therefore a field glass is highly recommended. But also the fauna is very rich and is worth to be aware.
