Authentic section of the wall, not crowded with irritant tourists (we met around 10 people during our 2h hike). It's partially restored and some parts are very steep, so it's important to have good hiking boots. You'll meet people at various points asking you to...More

Beautiful experience on this part of the wall where you are in the middle of the nature with so few people. Two to three hours walk is available on this part. Careful it could be steep and sloppy.

Missing the chairlift, gondola, zoo or amusement park atmosphere, this section of the wall does not get the traffic of the others. The wall is smaller, narrower and not as high as in other places, but it is also not jammed with people talking on...More
