Hike to the Murg lakes
Show all 7 images
The three Murg lakes are nestled in a wildly romantic mountain basin. Streams, lakes, waterfalls, moor meadows and a protected pine reserve make this tour an experience.

From Murg am Walensee you can reach the starting point parking lot Mornen by car or Murgsee bus (without timetable, only by appointment, taxi Walser, Murg). Via the Alp Guflen you reach the forest reserve with ancient pine trees where any use of wood is dispensed with. Now you can already catch a glimpse of the waterfall, which falls down to the lower Murg Lake. Soon you reach the Middle and Upper Murgsee with the Murgseehütte, which owes its origin to the earlier ore mining. The Murg lakes are framed in a wreath full of mountains. On the left, the Mürtschenstock with its three peaks Stock, Fulen and Ruchen builds up imposingly. Back it goes on the same path, but the view out of the valley lets the hiker discover again and again new facets of the original Murg valley.
On the sun terrace of the Berggasthaus Murgsee you can enjoy the hiking break with food and drink twice.
In spring, the hiking trail can still be covered in snow at the section between the middle and lower Murg lakes (Peterjosen-Gfäsch). Since the terrain next to the hiking trail is sloping, caution is advised here under appropriate conditions.
For this hike, sturdy shoes are an advantage, as especially after rainfall and at the time of snow melt, the path can be wet and slippery in some places.

There are no public transport connections for the journey. The Murg Valley Taxi has not been operating since 2020. The current alternative recommendation is therefore by train to Murg or Walenstadt and before there by taxi Walensee (+41 79 735 30 00) to the Murg Valley.
