It starts off with the most adventurous part – the ride on the Holzkistenbahn cable car from Starkenbach to Strichboden. From here, this simple route with its gentle undulations continues for two hours on the Toggenburg alpine path to Alp Sellamatt all the while keeping below the zigzagging Churfirsten peaks and passing the mysterious Wildenmannlisloch, where small cave lovers will find something to interest them.
They say this is the fairest region of all in Emmental. The alpine hike from Lüderenalp on the Napf runs close to the ridge on a narrow path and past rustic inns. A beautiful view over the Alps, the Mittelland and the Jura is your constant companion.
The ViaRhenana, one of Switzerland's longest hiking trails, runs for ten days along the historic waterway between Untersee and Hochrhein. The fourth stage takes four hours from Schaffhausen to Rheinau with its baroque monastery church.
