The mountains so close

Our region is very popular with mountain sports enthusiasts. The 18 four-thousand-meter peaks, the numerous SAC mountain huts, alpine tours, gorges, the via ferratas, the rope park and the bouldering possibilities make every mountain-sports-heart beat faster.

The cutest villagers

The marmots awaken from mid-April! You can visit the tame and sweet animals at Spielboden or Stafelwald until late summer. With a bit of luck, you can catch a glimpse of the marmots in autumn before they go into hibernation and feed them carrots or nuts from your hand.
