Nessel loop trail

  • start: Mountain station of the cable car on Belalp (2100m)
  • destination: Birgisch car park (1093m)

The Nessel loop trail takes you through alpine meadows, fields of blueberries and along the Nessjeri Suone (ancient irrigation channel) to Nesselalp. It is well worth taking a few minutes to take in the breath-taking panorama with the 18th century Maria of the Snow chapel in the foreground. From Nesselalp, the trail leads you over rock slabs and tree roots. As of Chittumatte, the trail gets stonier and dustier as you approach Birgisch. Advanced biking skills are required for the route between Belalp and Birgisch.
