This mountain hike starts in Blitzingen. From the railway station, you go down to the Rhone river to the pretty hamlet of Bodmen on the other side of the valley.
The typical Valais houses and barns baked black by the sun stand closely together. Now, there is a steep rise, first through a spruce forest and then through the open larch forest. Above the forest, we reach Bodmeralp and not long afterwards arrive at the three small romantic mountain tarns: Mittle, Grundle and Grittlesee. After a four-hour climb, we reach the Ärnergale. The views reward you for your efforts. We walk along the broad back of the Ärnergale, past grazing sheep and cattle, on a gentle descent to Schäre. From here, there is a steep descent to Chäserstatt where an inviting mountain restaurant offers food and drink. You can also spend the night here. You then descend through the forest to Mühlebach, the village with the oldest village square in wooden construction in Switzerland.
