Naturpark Diemtigtal - Winter hiking trail Springenboden with different variants

Winter hiking trail with many variants: The starting point of the circular trail is the car park of the Gsässweid inn. The winter hiking trails, which are around 15 kilometres long in total, lead through the snow-covered forests and across the pastures of the Diemtigtal south slope.

The circular walks are divided into three sections: "Ahorni" (Variant A) and "Neuenstift" (Variant B) are suitable for short walks with little difference in altitude. The "Ottenschwand" section is more challenging and leads up to 1500 m above sea level.
