Grengiols - Grossi Tanna
The trail takes you from Grengiols via the village street past the impressive church to the hamlet of Bächerhäusern.
The church of Grengiols is unique in its construction in that it is not aligned from east to west like all other churches but from south to north. The layout of the graveyard is also unique. The graves in the graveyard are ordered according to marital status. Those who were married are buried in the lower graveyard and those who were single in the upper graveyard.
From the hamlet of Bächerhäusern, the trail leads along the sledging run to the Alpine foothill of Seng. Shortly afterwards, you follow the signpost towards Schärtegga and then come across probably the mightiest spruce tree in the entire Binntal Landscape Park, known locally as "Grossi Tanna". You walk along the road, Breithornstrasse, as far as "Dirr Egga" and from there back to Bächerhäusern and then return to the village of Grengiols.

The dairy cooperative has been in existence since 1927 and still has 10 suppliers with an annual production of around 70 tons of cheese. The well-known "Gomser 55", a protected local brand, has been produced in the village dairy for decades.
The Grengiols cooperative was established on 21 August 1910. There are now 130 members and 4 part-time staff are employed, equivalent to 2 full-time positions.
