Historic road

  • start: Naters Marktplatz (680 m)
  • destination: Blatten bei Naters (1327m)

The old mountain road between Naters and Blatten bei Naters is a historic path connection that is recognisable as such primarily because of its traditional appearance and because of its structural substance.

The so-called "old mountain road" leads from Naters to Klosi and then uphill to Moos, Geimen, Mehlbaum and Blatten bei Naters. The old mountain road dates back to two millennia ago.

It is gently nestled in the cultivated landscape of the Natischer Berg. The shape of the road is characterised by alleys, hollow and sloping paths, embankments, dry stone walls, free-standing path boundaries, standing stones, picket fences, stone paving, cross slopes, mule troughs and the like. The old mountain road served mainly as a mule track and cattle drive. In many places, the excellent historic building fabric has been preserved.
