The theme path is located above the «Schellen-Ursli village» of Guarda. It was reopened in summer 2017. The trail leads from Guarda to «Plan dal Növ», over to «Clüs», to «Lajet» and back down to Guarda. The trail focuses on highlights from the book, such as the handing out of bells, the adventurous climb to the Maiensäss or the joyful bell procession «Chalandamarz». The experience is always in the foreground. Thus, not the whole story is told, but visitors’ imagination is given lots of freedom.

Author’s recommendation

Before or after the hike, you can visit the Schellen-Ursli Museum in Guarda, which is located opposite the Hotel Meisser.

Steiler Aufstieg und traumhaft schöner Wanderweg durch den alpinen Wald. Gute Ausschilderung, ideenreiche Stationen mit attraktiven Aufgaben für die Kids. Unsere Kinder möchten die Tour gerne wiederholen. Auch bei Regenwetter machbar.
