This wonderful round walk in the largest continuous stretch of moorland in Switzerland is notable for its views and the diversity of its flora.
From the Berghotel Langis, the path leads over a small rise to Schwendi-Kaltbad. Now it climbs straight ahead, past the Andresenhütte refuge and through the forest up to the Schlierengrat ridge to the Bärnerstig. From there, the Schlierengrat leads gently up and down northwards through blueberry bushes and past gnarled pines and spruces. After about three quarters of an hour of walking, you reach the signpost pointing the way down to Rorersmatt, where there is a change of direction towards the south. Via Bärzopf, a pasture path leads through a stream ditch over fens down to the little Schlierental road. Finally, the path follows the Grosse Schliere past several barbecue spots to Schwendi-Kaltbad. The Bergrestaurant Schwendi-Kaltbad is a good place to stop off for a bite to eat. You return to Langis over the slight rise and along the edge of protected moor pools.
