Description

We climb the Trusera water pipe in the Erner Wald to avoid car traffic into the Binntal. After crossing the Binna we make a small additional loop to the idyllically situated Jakobskapelle on the Albrunweg. On the schattenhang we hike via Grengiols to Mörel, past the children's cemetery zen Hohen Flühen of Bitsch and on the Red Mile to the Totenplatte in Naters. Behind the Mauritius Church stands the more than 500-year-old ossuary, where thousands of skulls stare at us behind a bar. On the opposite side of the Rotten, in Brig, a (pilgrim) hospice of St. Anthony with a chapel was donated as early as 1304, which was the Upper Valais hospital until after the Simplon tunnel was built. In its vicinity we find the Ursuline nunnery donated by Kaspar Stockalper (1609-1691) and the Stockalper Middle School of the College Spiritus Sanktus with an impressive church each

Geheimtipp

For the first three hours we have no shortcut or alternative transport option. From Grengiols we can always get to a station of the Matterhorn-Gotthard Railway (MGB) within a reasonable period of time.

Ausrüstung

On this alpine trail to Goms, frosty and windy conditions are also possible outside the winter months. Good weather protection is therefore doubly important
