  1. High bog in the Grisons

The Alp Flix is located above the village of Sur in the Albula region. The bog, beautifully situated on a plateau, is part of the Parc Ela, the largest nature park in Switzerland, and protected as a moorland of national importance. The varied mosaic of meadows, forests, moors, small lakes, and rocks holds dense biodiversity, which is being studied in a long-term study by research teams.

  1. On the Appenzeller Rondomwegen

“Rondom” is Appenzellisch for all around or around. On the Rondomwegen between St. Anton and Oberegg in the Appenzeller Vorderland, which can be done in different variants between half and two hours, there is also a Rondom to enjoy. One looks at the Grisons and Vorarlberg mountains, the Alpstein and on Lake Constance and in the southern German area, while you walk through the intact natural landscape on the specially marked trails.

The two-hour route goes from St. Anton via Kuser, Bürki and Hasenwinkel across lush alpine meadows and through shady forests to Rütggg and via Beusel, Büelen and Grauenstein back down to St. Anton.

  1. The Urner sun terrace

When the high fog in the lowlands depresses the mood, the Eggberge high above the Lake of Uri offers bright sunshine. The sun terrace at 1500 meters above sea level, can be reached by aerial cable car from Altdorf, offers beautiful hiking possibilities with far-sightedness. Experienced mountain hikers with good footwear, for example, take the wild ranger path Rophaien under their feet, which leads through one of the largest coherent wild hay areas in Switzerland.

  1. Discoveries in the Ticino mountains

Campo, on a plateau in a side valley of the Vallemaggia, may be little known, but one of the most beautiful villages in Ticino. It is also an ideal starting point for hikes in summer and winter (snowshoeing and touring skiing) for honeymoon destinations in Switzerland. Numerous mountain lakes and peaks can be reached in a few hours. Since there are routes with very different levels of difficulty, both occasional hikers and families will find just as suitable routes as experienced mountain walkers.

  1. The highest vineyard in Europe in Valais

Heida is the Valais name from the grape variety Savagnin, which is called in the Lower Valais Païen. In the Valais, the Heida is mentioned for the first time in a document in the mid-16th century. He is probably grown in the region but much longer. First, the Heida was grown only on the slopes of Visperterminen, and to an altitude of 1100 meters above sea level.

  1. The plateau of the Jurassic Freiberg

Jurassic Freiberg is much more a rugged plateau than actual mountains. On the Jura pastures, you can see not only cows but above all many horses; the area is home to the Freiberg horses.

Luxury destinations Switzerland offer excellent hiking opportunities, both on the high plateau and in the Doubstal. A beautiful and easy hike leads from Saignelégier over pastures and through the forest to the Etang de la Gruère, the largest moor lake in Switzerland, whose water is peaty brown. From the Etang, you can either continue to the Bernese Tramelan, march back to Saignelégier or turn slightly to the left to get to Le Noirmont.
