Hiking in Wildhaus
Toggenburg is one of the most beautiful hiking regions in Switzerland and offers an extraordinary variety of trails for every type of hiker. Relaxed pleasure hiking is just as possible as challenging alpine tours to the Alpstein or Churfirsten peaks. Choose from short and easy lakeside walks, high-altitude treks lasting several days, or various theme trails for families and adults. Here are a few of our favorite examples:
The Sound Path offers a beautiful and varied hike, combined with the sonorous experience of 27 sound installations along the path.
This first stage of the famous high-altitude trail is 14 km long and offers a fantastic view of the Churfirsten peaks. By the way: Selunalp is located very close to the famous prehistoric Wildenmannlisloch Cave.
Ghostly ladies, wild men, and old haunts: this circular theme trail on the Chäserrugg is particularly suitable for families and children. It revives the world of Toggenburg myths and legends in an exciting and thrilling way.
