On the trail between Churwalden and Malix, various highlights await young and old alike. The Churwalden monastery including the monastery pond form the start. This is followed by the Lax brook trout farm before crossing the Eggatobel Bridge in Malix, which was built in the 19th century. The trail ends at Strassberg Fort in Malix. There are boards with background information at all the stops.
