The inventors of the Weatherman Hiking Trail, the “Wetterschmöcker” (Weather Tasters/Forecasters) of Central Switzerland, are known beyond the country’s borders. Although they are sometimes ridiculed, their work should be taken seriously: With a success rate of up to 80%, their predictions are much better than random guesses.
The Weatherman Hiking Trail in the Muotathal Valley shows at 14 stations how, based on the signs of nature, weather rules are made to predict sun, wind, and rain.
Weatherman hiking is about enjoying the company of fellow hikers, observing nature and returning home enriched by a wonderful experience. Two different routes are available: the short route of about one hour, and the longer, two-hour route which offers the opportunity for a refreshing drink at the mountain pub “Guggeli-Besenbeiz”.
