Riviera Lake Walen Weesen – Quinten
Show all 9 images
Because of the mild climate it is also called the "Riviera Walensee". This is particularly felt in Quinten and can also be seen. Kiwis and figs grow there.
Weesen, bus stop "See"
From the postbus stop "Weesen, See", where there are also many public parking spaces, the hike runs along the main road to the hamlet of Fli. From here, a small road - which is partly carved into the rock, just above the water level or leads through tunnels - leads in the direction of Betlis. At the former Roman watchtower Strahlegg a wonderful panoramic view can be enjoyed. After the Seerenbach waterfalls follows an ascent of about 200 meters into the Seerenwald. The first part can be covered on a very nice and wide path. Afterwards, the slightly steeper and stonier path, which is secured with retaining ropes, leads downhill to the hamlet of Quinten, one of the few still car-free places in Switzerland. The mild climate allows figs, lemons, kiwi and an excellent wine to mature. Back to Weesen or other stations at the Walensee you can then reach by boat.
Visit the "Geschenklädeli" in Quinten right next to the church. Local specialities are served there.
The path leads partly over slippery area with bare limestone rock.
Good hiking boots are absolutely necessary.
