Forecast

We will see another day of sunshine and clouds today. A weak front, which will not influence our weather very much, however, will bring us slightly less sunshine than yesterday. There may also be occasional snow showers.

Tendency

The winter will prepare its next attempt: the clouds will increase from the north giving way to snowfall on Thursday.

The Larchsteig is a short circular hike on the edge of the village of Obsteig with a focus on "the Larch meadow experience at the historic Herdstein". If you take your time, you can discover lots of interesting information about the larch itself, as well the history of the larch forests, how they are managed and their inhabitants.

The highlights include glacial erratics, which are large boulders from the Ice Age, and a large stone with a circle on it, known as the "Kreisstein", which still remains a mystery.

The duration of the route depends entirely on who is doing it: runners only need 15 minutes, hikers can complete it in 45 minutes, interested hikers may need two hours and anyone who really wants to savour it should allow half a day.
