Winter hike on the Rellerli with a delicious fondue thrown in

The idea behind the Fondue Trail along the Rellerligrat was to roll two pleasures into one: that of a tasty fondue and that of a magnificent mountain panorama. The equipment and wherewithal can be picked up at the cheese dairy in Schönried.
