The Atzmännig region is also a paradise for hikers. The whole area is covered with a dense network of fantastic mountain paths. One of the best is the one going from the Atzmännig via the Rotstein and the Tweralpspitz over to Chrüzegg. The views stretch from the Säntis and the Toggenburg right into the Glarner and Central Swiss mountains. There are two cosy mountain cafés, one on the Atzmännig and the other on the Chrüzegg, for delicious mountain treats.

On the Atzmännig circuit you get straight down to business. A steep path leads from Schutt up to the top station of the Atzmännig chair-lift. The mountain path which then leads over to Chrüzegg leaves nothing to be desired in terms of views - they are simply stunning. A path which is quite steep in places then leads from the Chrüzegg back down to Schutt.
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.
