Saffron trail Mund

  • start: Mund (1223 m)
  • destination: Mund

Did you know why Munder saffron is more valuable than gold? And how, according to legend, it was curiously smuggled into Mund? You can find out the answer to these and many other exciting questions on the saffron nature trail in Mund.

The starting point of the saffron nature trail is the village centre. From there, you can take a tranquil circular path that leads through saffron fields and meadows with an impressive view of the Rhone Valley. During the hike, there are currently six stations with information boards that provide information about the Munder saffron culture in German and French. Visitors learn, for example, why the culinary prodigy saffron may only be picked and processed by hand, or who its worst enemies are. Information about history, origin, culinary, cultivation, processing, botany and Munder tradition is conveyed. The saffron nature trail is a fun way to hike in nature. A section of the trail is wheelchair accessible!
