The practically flat Rottenweg along the young Rhone is ideal for exploring the Obergoms. Sometimes across wide meadows, sometimes through light forests, the Rottenweg leads from village to village. This cosy hiking trail invites you to get to know the excellent Obergommer gastronomy. Also prams or bicycles are often seen on the Rottenweg. A pleasure trail for young and old, big and small. In each village you can make a detour and return to the starting point by train.

The Rottenweg can be continued as desired until Ernen.
