The path to the Burgen viewpoint in Blatten near Naters leads through the Chastelwald forest. Discover an untouched primeval forest right on the edge of the village of Blatten near Naters. Fallen trees, bogs and lots of forest inhabitants await you.
To ensure that the natural forest reserve remains untouched, we ask you not to leave the hiking trails. The natural development of the forest is deliberately allowed again on around 60 hectares. Since the forest is not used for forestry, the trees can reach their biological age. For example, spruces can live up to 700 years and larches up to 1000 years.
The forest develops all phases of development over time. Above all, build-up and decay phases. This specifically promotes biodiversity. For visitors, this is an intensive nature experience of an unusual kind.
Once you have reached the castles, you can enjoy a wonderful view of the village of Blatten near Naters.
