Beautiful hiking trails meander through gentle hills, ancient forests, pretty villages and lush meadows where magnificent cherry trees stand. Welcome to hiking in the Argau: the Garden of Eden in Switzerland. The Fricktaler Höhenweg leads you through spectacular natural and cultural landscapes with little difference in altitude. The Aargau trails offer day, multi-day and themed routes – ideal for every hiker.

In this Collection, we show you the 37 miles (60 kilometers) long Fricktaler Höhenweg in all its beauty and eight unique experiences in the region, which offer a variety of pleasure hikes.

You can hike the Fricktaler Höhenweg in five stages. The route takes you on countryside and forest paths from Rheinfelden to Mettau, over the beautiful heights of the Tafeljura. As you walk through the Garden of Eden, you will always have the opportunity to snack on the magnificent cherry trees for which the Fricktal is so famous – after all, the Fricktal pedigree trees are part of the local cultural heritage.

If you would like to experience even more around the Fricktaler Höhenweg, you can discover the history of Rheinfelden on various day hikes, wander through the nature of the moated castle in Brugg or follow in the footsteps of Swiss writers in Olten. Multi-day hikes such as the Habsburger Weg or the Aargauer Weg also provide a unique opportunity to explore the Garden of Eden.

Many of the experiences can be combined directly with the Fricktaler Höhenweg or with each other and all the starting and finishing points of the hikes can be reached by public transport. This makes it very easy to plan your hikes in Aargau and discover the Garden of Eden for yourself.
