The first part of the hike leads over the Heidipfad to the Schwarzbüel viewpoint at 1,727 m above sea level.M, where you can enjoy a breathtaking view over the Rhine Valley to Lake Constance and the surrounding countries. Over a high moor landscape, the path continues to the Viltersersee, which invites you to linger. Sit on the shore for a small picnic break and enjoy the view. For those who are not sensitive to cold, a jump into the cold water is of course also recommended. After the Viltersersee, the path winds past an Alphüttli, which offers the Älplern protection in bad weather, to the green-blue Wangsersee.


You can ideally combine the 2-lakes hike with the beggar's path. You hike over the Alp Lasa back to Pardiel (about 4 hours hiking time).


Normal hiking equipment, sturdy mountain boots


From the valley station Bad Ragaz you can reach Pardiel, the starting point of the 2-lake hike, with the gondola lift. Just outside the mountain station you will see the first signpost, which you follow in the direction of Vilterser Seeli. After about 30 meters you will reach the next branch. There you follow the path uphill and then reach the gravelled alpine road. Now the first real ascent begins to the Pardieler Obersäss. From there we continue in the direction of Vilterser Seeli. After several meters on the gravel road you reach the junction of the upper part of the Heidipfad. You follow this now, past the long jump facility and further and further to the viewpoint Schwarzbüel, from where you can enjoy a breathtaking view to Lake Constance.

There the path branches off to the left, again in the direction of Vilterser Seeli. From here, the hiking trail winds its way up over the Alpine pasture. After some time you will reach another turnoff. You pass this and continue to hike uphill. After some steeper climbs, the path now flattens out again and leads you into the small valley towards Vilterserer Seeli. It is not far away and you can see the Viltersersee.

Continue in the direction of Wangsersee, past an Alphüttli and continue high over the zigzag path. Here you pass some narrower places. However, these are easily feasible and after a few meters they are already over. Then you will reach the next plateau, which offers you another brilliant view back towards Lake Vilters. Continue in the direction of Wangsersee. Now the steepest part is done. After some time you will now reach the Pizol Panorama Höhenweg. There a signpost shows you the way towards Wangsersee, which is already reached after only a few meters.

Arriving at the Wangsersee, you now reach via Pizol Panorama Höhenweg to the station Laufböden, from where you can take the chairlift back to Pardiel and on to Bad Ragaz.
