Over Stockalper’s and Napoleon’s road

Today I left in the 10.18 hrs Postal car for Simplon-Dorf over the Simplon Pass. Because of today’s fine weather I had planned to hike a part of a stage of the Via Alpina: Stage 6 of the Blue Trail officially runs from the Simplon Pass to the village of Zwischbergen, on the border to Italy. Today I hiked from Simplon-Dorf to the Simplon Pass, a part of this stage and in the reverse direction! And again in an aera I didn’t know. Continue reading

Panoramic views from the Rifair Scharte and the Glurner Köpfl

Yesterday morning I have started to hike Stage 69 of the Red Trail of the Via Alpina: from Taufers im Münstertal, just on the border between Switzerland and Italy, via the Rifaier Alm over the Rifair Scharte Pass to Stilfs in the valley of the Suldenbach stream and the Stilfserjoch Pass. This stage is the sequel of Stage 68 of the Red Trail: from S-charl to Taufers over the S-charljöchl and through the beautiful Val Avigna valley, which I have hiked about two years ago, on June 13th 2017 and which I have enjoyed so much! !

A stage of the Via Alpina, … by bus!

On this last day in the Vinschgau I woke up early. This day as well would be very hot in the valley, so I made a plan to go by bus to the Stilfserjoch Pass: at 2.700 m it should somehow be cooler! Continue reading

From one valley into another valley over the Ofen Pass

Today I had still some time to spend before I would leave by train and Postal car to Mals in South Tyrol and I made a tour through Scuol – and not only into the direction of the Schulhaus, the school building! The weather was hot again and from the west menacing clouds rolled in. Rain is urgently needed here… Continue reading

A stage of the Route of St. James through Grisons: S-charl to Lü

After an educational week in the school benches it was about time to go outside and enjoy the fresh air. I was looking forward to set off for the mountains. The weather couldn’t be better: it was a sunny day with a pleasant temperature. The hike would be a nice one as well. Continue reading

Over the Flüela Pass back to school

I finished my first day in school of the “Cuors intensif Vallader” (The intensive course Rhaetian roman language)! At 9 o’clock this morning I gathered along with over 130 “students” in the auditorium of the school building in Scuol, all eager to learn and improve our knowledge of the Vallader, spoken in this part of the Engadin.
