Treasure Chest Alp Flix

The hiking circuit from Sur to the idyllic moorland lakes, Lake Neir and Lake Blos, leading past the Alpine settlements of Cuorts and Tigias reveals the extraordinary beauty of this natural "treasure chest", a unique nature paradise and cultural landscape.

Vast moorlands and pine forests characterise the landscape on the Alp Flix. Hikers appreciate the charm of this high plateau with its gurgling brooks and flower-covered meadows. The circular walk from Sur to the idyllic moorland lakes, Lake Neir and Lake Blos, reveals the extraordinary beauty of this "treasure chest of nature".

Aletsch Panoramaweg: The Swiss Glacier Trail

Europe's longest glacier is not listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for no reason. The landscape through which this four-hour hike from Bettmerhorn mountain station runs is spectacular. Flagstones make the mountain trail easily accessible and on a panoramic level high above the Aletsch Glacier it leads towards the magical Lake Märjelen.

Solar and Wind Power Stations at Mount Soleil and Mount Crosin

One of the most important renenwable energy centres in Europe can be found in the Bernese Jura: the wind power station on Mount Crosin and the solar power station on Mount Soleil.

The photovoltaic solar power station operates on Mount Soleil. Wind turbines stand on Mount Crosin.

Geological trail through the Zügen gorge

An insight into the geological development in the Zügen gorge, between Davos-Monstein and the "Bärentritt". Old valley road closed to motorcar traffic, set in cool shade due to the narrow, deep valley cutting. Above us, the Rhaetian Railway, which negotiates the gorge across viaducts and through tunnels. Carries on towards Wiesen, then continues on the nature trail to Filisur.

People who are familiar with stones and rock formations will walk through the mountains as if they were reading a book on geology.
