The itinerary we propose is an easy circular route of about 10 kilometres that can be covered in about three hours. The trail starts from the hotels area, where you can arrive easily by car or public transport. In the same area there are also some essential facilities, such as public toilets, a bar and an ATM machine. The walk follows the northern side of the mountain along a path partly cut into the rock. The ascent is gentle and is about 300 metres, achievable over the first 5 kilometres of the walk. Halfway along the cliff path, you will see from below the Hammetschwand panorama lift and its elegant metal steel silhouette. Continuing along this path and then along the short, slightly steeper section to the summit, you will reach a viewpoint and a mountain restaurant. From here begins the descent, which first leads to the Villa Honegg hotel and then back to the resort area for the return journey. The Resort area, the area near Villa Honegg and the southern side of the mountain in general can be reached all over the year. But the rock path and the panorama lift are generally closed in winter for safety reasons. Here you can check in advance whether they are open or not.
