This easy tour is suitable for the whole family and starts with the ascent from Gargellen up to the Schafberg plateau. Already in the gondola you can enjoy wonderful views of the winter wonderland below the Gargellner Heads.From the mountain station of the Schafbergbahn at 2,130 meters you first hike towards the Valzifenz lift. Along the well-groomed hiking trail you will find blue boards and pink snow poles that show you the way. At the height of the Valzifenz lift you follow a left curve and then march towards the Kristallbahn.This section is flat and offers a wonderful winter panorama. The mighty Madrisa (2,770 meters) as well as the Ritzenspitze and the Valiseraspitze on the other side of the valley are striking. Out of the valley you can see the wide rock massif of the Rütihorn. Before you reach the valley station of the Kristallbahn, the winter hiking trail slopes gently to the right in a small loop that leads you back to the starting point on the same path.You can warm up and strengthen yourself in the cozy Schafberg Hüsli mountain restaurant at the mountain station. You shouldn't miss the homemade strudel and cakes.
