Experience this culinary hike with a unique view far beyond the Linth plain as a short hike during an afternoon or as a day hike lasting several hours.

The newly created theme trail also brings a new wind to the Habergschwänd – Mullern – Fronalp hiking area. This is because the popular hiking trail has been completely redesigned and expanded into an exciting theme and adventure trail. Ten panels provide informative and easy-to-understand information about the history, production and marketing of Schabzigers. But there are also interesting facts in text and pictures about alpine and mountain farming in the Glarus region and about milk itself. At station 5 there is a mechanical stall-forming machine in a shelter (dating from 1910!), which originally formed stalls for many years in the «Zigerribi» Mollis. On the section of the trail between the former Alpenrösli and the Naturfreundehaus, every hiker can take part in a competition with an instant win and a chance to win a prize. It's best to get your hiking boots and red socks ready now and let yourself be personally surprised.

Questions and answers

Question from Monika Weibel · September 10, 2021 · Community
Wieso soll dieser Weg seit 01.01.2018 immer noch gesperrt sein????? Und die Einstufung „schwer“ trifft glaub auch nicht zu. Welche Einkehrmöglichkeiten gelten aktuell? Im Helgenhüsli war dies bis vor rund 60j möglich….

Hallo Monika, bei der Sperrung geht es um eine permanente Streckenänderung, daher wurde sie immer noch angezeigt. Da diese Tour jedoch nur am Rande davon gestreift wird, hab ich sie jetzt entfernt. Einkehrmöglichkeiten gibt es einige entlang des Weges, über aktuelle Öffnungszeiten und Bestimmungen bitte selbstständig informieren. Viele Grüße aus der Outdooractive Redaktion
