Old mule track Naters - Birgisch

  • start: Naters (680 m)
  • destination: Birgisch

This hike begins in Naters and first leads through the old village. The oldest buildings date back to the 12th century and the lime tree next to the vicarage was first mentioned in 1357.

The route then continues via Klosi or via the Way of the Cross and the old mule track to Birgisch. During the hike, the view opens up to the Belalp and the Sparrhorn. You can also enjoy the view of the Rhone Valley and the Simplon region.

In Birgisch, you can descend along the same path or continue on to Geimen. Or you can take the post bus and travel back to Naters / Brig in comfort.

The trail can also be walked in the opposite direction, from Birgisch to Naters.
