Hike to the Murg lakes
Show all 7 images
From Murg am Walensee you can reach the starting point of the Mornen car park by car or call-a-taxi. Via Alp Guflen you reach the forest reserve with ancient Swiss stone pine, where any use of wood is avoided. Now you can already catch a glimpse of the waterfall that plunges down to the lower Murgsee. Soon you reach the Middle and Upper Murgsee with the Murgseehütte, which owes its origin to the former ore mining. The Murg lakes are framed in a wreath full of mountains. To the left, the Mürtschenstock rises imposingly with its three peaks Stock, Fulen and Ruchen. The way back is the same way, but the view out of the valley allows hikers to discover new facets of the original Murg Valley again and again.
On the sun terrace of the Murgsee mountain inn, you can enjoy a hiking break with food and drink twice.
In spring, the hiking trail can still be covered with snow in the section between the middle and lower Murgsee (Peterjosen-Gfäsch). Since the terrain next to the hiking trail is sloping, caution is advised here in appropriate conditions.
Sturdy shoes are an advantage for this hike, as the path can be wet and slippery in some places, especially after rainfall and when the snow melts.
