  • Tipp

    We recommend bringing a printout of the route just to be sure.

From the centre of the village of Riedtwil, the trail leads to an old mill and then through the forest along the Mutzbach stream, which is crossed several times on small bridges. Following the trail, hikers and explorers finally reach the 14-metre Mutzbach fall. Our recommendation: take a break here and watch the water in its free fall over the sandstone.

From the waterfall, there are steps that take you to the other side of the stream, where you climb a ladder up the rock wall (don’t worry, it’s only nine steps). Once you’re at the top, a narrow path will take you through a beech forest and then up to Rüedisbach. The steep ascent is rewarded with a beautiful view of the rolling hills and, depending on the season, fields full of vibrant flowers. The descent then leads over a sandstone crag down to Wynigen.
