High Alpine Route to Deep Blue Lake Oberblegi

The alpine route connecting Braunwald to Lake Oberblegi and down to Schwanden leads hikers through the weird rock formations of the moranes of the Glaernisch Range.

The alpine route connecting Braunwald to Lake Oberblegi and down to Schwanden leads hikers through the weird rock formations of the moranes of the Glaernisch Range. Indeed, the deep-blue lake itself was created by moranes that dammed the melting waters. Rushing mountain streams and beautiful alpine flowers round off the picture.

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.

From the City to the Hills via the Canyon

Hiking through the outskirts of Solothurn to a wild and romantic canyon with a chapel and hermitage.

A multifaceted hiking tour: It begins in the heart of Solothurn and takes you through outlying areas to the romantic wilderness of a canyon blessed with a chapel and hermitage, and then on a gentle trail along the foot of the Jurassic Mountains to your destination, Grenchen, the watch city.

Illgraben-Bhutan Bridge

Erosion caused the mountain to collapse and the vast, pale yellow and reddish rock basin to form, which becomes bigger every year. From the Grabenrad or the Illhorn (2,716 m) there are "fear inspiring" yet stunning views down into the Rhone valley.
