Hint

Intro

Switzerland’s northern-most round hike leads through 4 villages of the Thayngen community in canton Schaffhausen. Grill place, restaurants & swimming promise an enjoyable round hike.

Description

Where the forested Randen gently merges into Hegau with its distinctive lava domes, is the Reiat. The Biber rivulet has carved its way deep into the ground. The four villages, Bibern, Hofen, Altdorf and Opfertshofen were once owned by lords and clergy.

In this idyllic, quiet corner of Switzerland there is a colourful interplay of fields, meadows, vineyards and mixed forests. Time and again enjoy the magnificent views of the Hegau volcanoes and of the midlands all the way to the Alps. On smuggler trails the hike leads to Switzerland’s northern-most populated area, namely Egghof auf Sottenegg, Altdorf.

Despite its geographic position in the north, excellent vineyards thrive here – the most northern in Switzerland. Insider tip for this circular route is to make a stop at the Hüttenleben stop and guesthouse in Thayngen.

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
