Description

The 2.5 km long path leads from the village towards the Murg Valley, through old chestnut forests, past the freshly planted Selve, along a chestnut young stand for the production of chestnut wood, back to the starting point. On the way, a detour to the wildly romantic Murgbach gorge and the roaring waterfall is worthwhile. The path is decorated with various wooden sculptures. On the way you can find out interesting facts about the largest chestnut forest in Switzerland north of the Alps on display boards. ==References== In mid-September and mid-October, there is a chance to find ripe chestnuts on the ground along the way.

Geheimtipp

Families should definitely plan a stopover at the playground about halfway. There is also a fire pit here.

Sicherheitshinweis

On the Chestnut Trail, visitors are allowed to collect all the marroni that are already on the ground. On the other hand, it is not allowed to beat the fruits from the trees with sticks or stones, because you injure the trees and they can die as a result. Tip: Most fruits can be found in the early morning or when it rains or the hair dryer blows. Then more fruits fall from the tree.

Ausrüstung

The path is not suitable for prams throughout. The trail is well developed (mostly nature trails) and also feasible for smaller children.
