Beginning by the Stadium, you walk on a paved path. !Caution, there are horse drawn carriages, and the horses leave things behind.!
Passing between shops, we reached the beginning of our hike. After paying a small fee (in Euro) we entered the cave. The cave generally covers your left and the roof, with the right side open to the water; a river of melted glacial water moving at a rock-crushing pace down the mountain. This was my favorite part of the walk, despite the chill and the occasional splash. It was over all too soon, and we walked into a little beach/valley area. After playing for a few minutes in the water, we continued up-stream and found the map board. The Map Board contains information about how long the walk should last, where it goes, what restaurants are on that walk, and how hard it is. There are many different walks available, some even leading to a bridge high above the River Gorge. Being unfortunately pressed for time due to a previous engagement, we took the shortest walk. We walked up part of the mountain on a forested path, crossing small mountain streams on wooden bridges, then finally reaching the top of our path. Thrust into light, we were surrounded by green fields, Alpine buildings, sheep, and mountain tops with forest. It was spectacular. The last part of the walk was the hardest: Coming back down. The path down was at a severe angle, and littered with loose rocks. We took it slowly, and there were no casualties (besides calf muscles.). When we reached the bottom, we were at the beginning of the River walk, where we paid.
It was absolutely spectacular, wonderful, however, it is not meant for strollers or very young children. On our hike, we had little trouble with our group of 8 children (aged 7+) and 4 adults.
Definitly a must-do if you enjoy walks or hiking!
