Hints

From the centre, follow the village road to the Kasernement Bären. An alternative is the way along the Kander, passing the international Scout Centre. On the mountain road, after a short but steep uphill, you reach Gasterntal. Follow the natural street to Selden. Should you want to go any further, after 10 minutes you will reach the end of the path in Heimritz. On your way back, tackle along Winterweg (junction shortly before the big rock fall). Attention: Mind the tracks through the dark tunnels!
