From Vättis to the Walser settlement St.Martin
Show all 5 images
A journey to the past.
The old Walserweg from Vättis to the Gigerwald dam leads over a small natural bridge in the Gwölb, through mixed forest we reach the Isig Brugg, where we cross the Tamina. On open forest meadows over the Höhi to the Dam Gigerwald you can often observe game. The steep rock faces on both sides with waterfalls along the reservoir are spectacular. A visit to the charming Walser settlement of St. Martin with its church from 1321 at the end of the lake is a must
The cosy dining room in the restaurant near Sankt Martin invites you to linger with a drink or a meal.
From the Gigerwald dam to Sankt Martin you walk on the road. Please pay attention to other way users.
Normal hiking equipment. Depending on the weather, good footwear (hiking boots) is recommended, otherwise slightly lighter, but still closed, shoes are sufficient for the tour.
