Safiental Legend Trail
Show all 5 images
On the way between Turrahus and Safien Platz you will learn 10 legends about Gadmämichel and other characters. A long time ago, strange things must have happened here and there.
Like many other mountain valleys, the Safiental has a rich and varied treasure trove of legends and stories. Legends are not simply fairy tales. Although some of these orally transmitted tales can also be found in other valleys, they always have a direct relationship to the landscape and thus a special significance.
Ten illustrated panels point out the legends at the place where they happened. If you take a look around, you will understand why there are so many stones in the Bächer forest, for example, or why you can imagine the Wättermannli on Camana.
There are two different but important companions for the Sagenweg.
For reading: You use the Sagenbüechli as a companion on the Sagenweg and read the legends in the Walser dialect or in written language. The children can also colour in the illustrations of the legends themselves.
The book of legends costs CHF 10. It is available at the following sales points:
- Spensa, Safien Platz
- Village shop, Safien Platz
- Turrahus mountain inn, Thalkirch/Turrahus
