Geimen - Nessel - Belalp

  • start: Geimen
  • destination: Mountain station cable car, Belalp

The hike first leads from Geimen to Geimerblatt. From here, the ascent is leisurely on the hiking trail in the direction of Birgisch. First you follow the Stockeri-Suone and the view opens down into the Rhone Valley.

From Birgisch (Ägerten), the relatively steep ascent then follows up to the Nessel. It is worth looking back in between and enjoying the view. Once you reach Nessel, it is worth taking a longer break. Visit the Maria zum Schnee chapel and about 100 metres next to the church you will find yourself on the precipice and can enjoy a magnificent view of the Rhone valley and the Simplon.

The last stage to Belalp is now more leisurely again. When you arrive at Alpe Bäll, you can make a detour to the alpine dairy and buy fresh alpine milk products. From here it is about 1 kilometre to the top station of the cable car.


Of course, the hike can also be started at Belalp.
