Hint

Intro

The distinctive scent of mimosa bushes, manicured palm gardens and unsurpassable views of deep-blue Lake Maggiore are the characteristics of this hike.

Description

The hike begins in Brissago and leads at an elevated level towards Ascona. Passing picturesque Ronco sopra Ascona, you reach Monte Verità before ending up in Ascona’s famous Piazza.

This trail is a typical spring hike. Temperatures are not yet too high, but nature has well and truly woken up – the ideal conditions for a wonderful day in this sun-drenched corner of Switzerland. Then, you can simply watch the world go by as you sip a cappuccino and relax in the Piazza in Ascona.
