On the footsteps of life of Ceasar Ritz
Hiking in the footsteps of the Säumer from the Grimsel Pass to Obergesteln.
On the old mule track from the Grimsel Pass down into the Rhone Valley to Obergesteln. Again and again you will find places where the old road surface (natural pavement or large covers with stone slabs) is still intact. Today the path is part of the Sbrinz route. The old trade route led from Lucerne via Lake Lucerne, the Haslital up to Grimsel and then down to Obergesteln.
There are various offers and attractions around the Grimsel Pass:
- Furka Steam Railway
- Gelmer railway
- and much more
