Back to the Roots.

Dem Ursprung auf der Spur


Route description

Prior to the hike take advantage of buying regional specialities for a picnic at the Voland confectionery and at Stappung's butcher shop in Bauma. Don't miss the opportunity to visit the Heimatwerk gift shop and witness the art of hand-weaving. Then off we go, following the river Töss, then along the Tobelbach up to the Hagheerenloch. At the cave that has formerly served robber barons and Anabaptists as hiding place, you will come across a beautiful fireplace. Soon you will have reached the Höhstock where you can enjoy the fantastic view of the Hörnli and the Schnebelhorn mountains.

Cheese and more

Around a small hill we get to Sternenberg and to the Preisig cheese factory. It has been family-owned for over 40 years and is famous for its «Sternenberger Mutschli», a traditional round cheese. The detour to the adventure farm of the Furrer family leads us to the Sternen restaurant. After the Sunnebad bus stop, we turn right and follow the «Wald Ranch Lädeli» sign, a shop with homemade farm delicacies.

Magic stars
We go back the same way or over the Gipsegg. At Schatzböl we pass the small observatory where you can find out on a clear night why Sternenberg got its poetic name. We can either go back by bus or walk via Musterplatz. First passing rolling hills and scattered farms, then underneath trees following the burbling of the creek, we soon reach the river Töss and Bauma, our starting point.
