From the post bus stop in Blatten, proceed over the bridge up into the centre of the village of Blatten. From here, continue in a northerly direction along the road between the school and the parish hall. Follow the path to Weissenried. The Chapel of St. George stands in the hamlet of Weissenried. It is worthwhile making a short detour to the chapel to admire the altarpiece of St. George, the Dragon-slayer.

Above Weissenried clip your snowshoes onto your feet. Follow the road through the recommended undisturbed wildlife habitat as far as Tellistafel. You now find yourself on the edge of the Blatten undisturbed wildlife habitat, which you are not permitted to enter.

On your return, head right along the stream, past the Firt shrine, as far as Blatten.
