From Susch railway station, the trail leads down to the village centre and over the bridge into the beautiful district of Sur Punt. At the eastern exit of the village, the easy ascent begins, which leads into the forest after a short while. At the Prasüras clearing, the highest point of the hike has already been reached. The wide winter hiking trail leads down through the snow-covered forest again until it changes to open terrain shortly before Lavin. At Lavin, the trail crosses the Inn again and reaches the railway station of Lavin through the centre of the village.

Author’s recommendation

The tower «La Tuor» and the church characterise the village of Susch. A visit to the «Rohan» fortress is particularly recommended.
