      I've been to the Säntis several times, but until now I haven't dared to walk a path. Today I decided quite spontaneously to give it a try and was inspired by one of Martina's tours on the Säntis, but went in the opposite direction.
      The tour was actually demanding, some sections of the route (T3, according to the map even T4 for short) required my full concentration, but I really liked it. Certainly not the shortest tour on the Säntis and probably also not the most typical (up to Tierwies I only met a few people), but highly recommended if you like somewhat rough, steep and very varied trails.

      We always organize a thematic walk through the village on the Federal Thanksgiving, Buss and Prayer Day. This time with Homeland Security. So much more of an excursion than a hike, but interesting and the social was not neglected either 🍷 😉.

      After three days of training and a lot of sitting, I urgently needed some "exercise". The easy, beautiful path through the Küsnachter Tobel came in handy for me. Not the most spectacular ravine in the region, but geologically interesting and ideal for "ventilating" your head.

      Finally another tour in the Alpstein - and what a tour! As far as Bollenwees, the paths are usually quite steep, but wide and easy to walk on. The Sämtisersee very shortly after "sunrise" (= sun comes out over the ridge) was beautiful. From Bollenwees there are also super beautiful, exciting paths (T2), which are almost always easy to walk, in parts of the forest are still a bit wet and slightly slippery. The Saxerlücke is very impressive and the path via Staubern to the Hohe Kasten, partly on the ridge, partly on the slope, is very beautiful. I'm sure I won't be through this for the last time!
      Of course, I wasn't traveling alone. The large parking lot in Brülisau was practically full shortly before 8 a.m. Except around Staubern and on the Hoher Kasten, however, I mostly had my peace and quiet.
      What I noticed: the majority of my fellow hikers are correctly equipped. However, a noticeable number of people are not so specific about their choice of shoes. From deep trekking shoes to sneakers to almost treadless loafers, everything was there. The young man who was on the road with Crocs shot the bird. Completely incomprehensible. He then slipped properly on the wet areas.

      A very varied SwitzerlandMobility route (835) leads through the beautiful high moor Rothenturm, which lets you experience the moor and the neighboring areas in all their facets. Since the 10 km journey time (one way) was a bit too short for me, I added a detour to the Morgartenberg, which I can also highly recommend.

      Again on the road with the bike! The waffle, which I ate with some colleagues in Frauenfeld, wanted to be earned 😉. Due to the weather, it was quite sweaty, but nice and on varied, very low-traffic cycle paths (partly corridor paths, partly tar roads, a good stretch on the Thurdamm).

      I finally wanted to visit the Seleger Moor Park. It's hydrangea season and the water lilies are still in bloom. A park worth seeing even in August, when the peonies and rhododendrons have already faded! You should plan at least 1.5 hours for the visit. Then I walked on easy paths to the Türlersee and from there - unfortunately over a bit of asphalt, luckily also a lot of forest - via Bisliker Weiher to Affoltern.

      Second stage of my tour in the Solothurn Jura. Beautiful, simple, sometimes rather steep paths lead to the Höchi Flue. From there it is easy to walk to the large Alt-Bechburg ruins. Soon afterwards the crisp ascent to Roggenschnarz begins and from there the great, easy ridge path to Roggenfluh. Again you will be rewarded with a great view. And the rock solid just below is sensational! Now comes the sometimes very steep descent on very varied paths (field roads to barely visible Schlichwegli) past Neu-Bechburg to Oensingen.

      Instead of the Alps, I ended up in the Jura. The ridge paths are great (although the Hornfluhgrat is only recommended for sure-footed and vertigo-free ridge fans), the views are always impressive, especially from the Belchenfluh, and the Tüfels Gorge is a real discovery.
