Getting here

Start the hike in Oberdiessbach and first to the church and further following the river Chise to the cemetery. There you start a long ascent up to the ridge of Churzenberg. On Güggel you will have a stunning view towards south. From there a challenging two hour altitude hike starts. But it's worth the trouble since there are many lookout points along the way. Passed Barschwandhubel the hike leads through a forest, in which you can still see the aftermath of hurricane „Lothar“ from 1999. At Chnubel hike further into open area slowly ascending to the granges of Äbersold. Then take the asphalt road towards the forest. There you will have a stunning view on Alpenkranz and the valley Aaertal. Afterwards you can choose where to continue. Via Ringgis to Müliseile you can either take the shadowy path via Waldgrat or the sunny path through the south face. The path in the shadow provides more beautiful views. East of Müliseile you can choose to take a detour up to the 42m high, wooden look-out in Gocherewald, which is famous for this area. The way to hotel Chuderhüsi is also full of great lookout points. In the center of attention is the church Würzbrunnen, which is surrounded by Schrattenflue, Schibengütsch and Hohgant. The path leads further to Röthenbach i.E.
