However Mühlebach has not degenerated into a museum village; instead, all of the houses continue to be inhabited and used. The sign-posted house trail leads past 22 attractive buildings, each of which is identified with a small plaque. A leaflet detailing the houses circuit is available in the Ernen Welcome Centre.
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.
