Description

Until the end of the 19th century, rafting played an important role in the lives of communities living along the Rhine and the Aare. An interesting themed walk from Laufenburg to Stilli (20 km, 5 hrs, can be walked in sections) follows this historic route. The raftsmen would sometimes walk this distance twice a day to collect another raft to be taken down the Aare/Rhein.

The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
