From the bus stop Hörnli Bahn in the direction of Schwellisee, to the other side of the valley, at the foot of Schafrügg. Slightly descending to Büdemji, then a little uphill to the right to Bärenbäd (exit Bärenbadschanze). Walk through the Hinterwald in the direction of Welschtobel, mostly falling through a beautiful snow-covered forest with individual clearings and a view of the village. As soon as you reach the Welschtobel, the valley opens up with a magnificent view of the cross-country skiing trail and a view of the small waterfall. After you have admired the ice formations at the waterfall, you return energetically to the ARA on the left side of the cross-country ski run via Bärenried to the ARA.

From there you can return to the village by cross-country bus.

Author’s recommendation

Our moonlight snowshoe hike is very popular. Explore the stars without disturbing artificial light.
