Description

The highest prehistoric site in Europe, the Drachenloch, is the destination of this challenging hike. The ascent is along a very steep mountain trail that leads the hiker through beech and fir forests to the Schafalp Gelbberg. From the hut, the Drachenloch is visible in the summit wall of the Drachenberg. On a grassy slope and a narrow band that requires some concentration, the historically significant cave is reached. The view of the Rätikon group and up to Piz Buin is overwhelming and unique.
