Winter hike Grotzenbüel
The trail leads from the Braunwaldbahn station through the idyllic village center to Schwettiberg (approximately 30 minutes). From there it leads on a mildly ascending slope up to the Grotzenbüel (another 30 minutes), where the mountain restaurant Chämistube is located, with its beautiful sun terrace. After refreshments, the path continues below the mountain restaurant (left of the official toboggan run starting point) back to the village. In about 45 minutes you will reach the Braunwald mountain station. The path is well-tended and leads through short patches of forest area, with a constant view of the Alpine panorama.
Alternatively, off the Grotzenbüel you could go down to Braunwald with the cable car. If you prefer to add some speed to your hike, you can combine this with a toboggan ride. Toboggans can be rented at the Grotzenbüel mountain station.
Only take this hike with suitable hiking boots. For older people we recommend the additional use of ice grips and hiking poles. During the hike into the Grotzenbüel one can expect oncoming traffic (toboggans, horse-drawn carriages and taxis).
Tobogganing fun! When the circumstances are right for it, the track down can be done on a toboggan.
