The Atzm��nnig 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 Atzm��nnig via the Rotstein and the Tweralpspitz over to Chr��zegg. The views stretch from the S��ntis and the Toggenburg right into the Glarner and Central Swiss mountains. There are two cosy mountain caf��s, one on the Atzm��nnig and the other on the Chr��zegg, for delicious mountain treats.

On the Atzm��nnig circuit you get straight down to business. A steep path leads from Schutt up to the top station of the Atzm��nnig chair-lift. The mountain path which then leads over to Chr��zegg 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 Chr��zegg 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.
