Description

The starting point of the first stage is left to the hiker himself: directly from the train station or by bus to the Meiersboden. The signs for the Schanfigger Höhenweg start at St. Hilarienbrüggli. On the way you pass the hotel school in Passugg. The construction of the former spa house is impressive. The route section Grida-Praden makes conditional demands, but the reward follows with wildromantic passages in the Steinbachtobel. Then you pass the village saw in Praden. Afterwards you can see the village church from the 17th century. Then you walk partly on the Churer Alpweg (before 1890) past the Lärchwald to Tschiertschen. In the village centre stands the 15th-century church with uncovered relics of late Gothic frescoes and a listed Toggenburg organ from 1820. If you still have energy left, visit Füxliweg. A special attraction is also the Tschiertscher saw, which is still operated with the hydropower of the Sagenbach.

Geheimtipp
