Landschaftspark Binntal -

Covered with snow
An interesting circular trail that leads you past a number of cultural highlights. The hike takes about 4-5 hours.

Shortly after the hamlet of Bächerhäusern, the path leaves the road and leads through forests over the Unnergriesgraben and Riedgraben ditches.
After crossing both ditches, the path continues through romantic forests to Firsitten, to the place called "Unnerbode". It is, however, worth climbing to "Oberbode" and the "Hohtutter", a remarkable viewpoint in the municipality of Grengiols. From here, you can enjoy a wonderful view towards Ausserbinn, the Twingischlucht gorge and into the Binntal valley.
Afterwards, you descend to Blatt where you’ll find the Chapel of St. James (Hl. Jakobus).
Now you can continue the hike to the hamlet of Hockmatta. You can take a break at the Chapel of the Holy Family. The path leads back to the village of Grengiols along the Roman road/Tulip Orbit.
