Kerenzerberg Römerweg

In the footsteps of the Romans, the tour leads from Näfels over Kerenzerberg to Mühlehorn. Testimony of the times let hikers' thoughts stray to worlds of a bygone age while at the same time, the Churfirsten mountain range and the deep-blue Lake Walensee are within sight.
Näfels, where the Roman Trail starts near the railway station, lies nestled between steep mountainsides. Across the Upper Linth Canal Bridge, the route leads into neighbouring Mollis with its well-preserved appearance of national importance. The winding alleys feature a mix of workman’s houses, stately manor homes surrounded by extensive gardens, and prestigious, historic buildings. At a moderate grade, the trail then ascends along dry stone walls to the hamlet of Beglingen.

Looking towards the south and west, the steep and impressive mountainsides of the Glärnisch Massif as well as those of Rautispitz and Wiggis, the local mountains of Näfels and Netstal, respectively, are in full view. The valley opens up towards the north and reveals a view of the Linth Plateau. The trail continues through the Britterwald Forest and climbs up along the Roman bridle path and cart track to the ruins of the Roman look-out and Hotel Römerturm. A meal there with a wonderful view of the Churfirsten mountain range and Walensee is most inviting after the ascent.

The enjoyable hike now takes the form of an elevated trail. Along dry walls and idyllic meadows, the Roman Trail leads through Filzbach via Reutegg to Obstalden and further on to Walenguflen. Hikers enjoy this section with the lovely view of the Walensee and the Churfirsten mountain range while to the right, the Mürtschen Massif towers above. Another highlight that hikers then encounter on this tour is the charming «Sägenbrücke» bridge, which crosses the Meerenbach Stream and leads to the descent towards Mühlehorn. The Mühlehorn Railway Station is reached by following the historical footpath down through Vortobel.
