Schabziger Höhenweg

Equipped with walking sticks, a hike to the «Zigerstöckli» - along a theme and discovery trail where ten stations reveal the history, makings and marketing of the famous «Glarner» Sapasago cheese (also known as Schabziger).
Explore the history of Switzerland’s first branded product: «Glarner» Sapasago cheese («Schabziger»). It is widely known for its characteristic green colour and unique, spicy taste, both of which are imparted by the addition of blue fenugreek («Zigerklee»). Along an easy theme and discovery trail, which is also suitable for families, ten stations reveal the history, makings and marketing of the famous «Glarner» Sapasago cheese (also known as «Schabziger»). The route includes a mechanical Stöckli moulding machine from 1910, which for many years served to shape the «Zigerstöckli» cheese speciality at the Mollis cheese dairy («Zigerribi»).

From the Habergschwänd starting point, which is reached by a nostalgic chairlift from Filzbach, a pleasant half-hour climb leads to Mittlere Nüenalp. There you find the showcase cheese dairy, where you can sit back and relax in the cozy «Besenbeiz» following the climb, or select some tasty farm-fresh products to take with you. On mist free days, looking north, you have unique views as far as the Black Forest from this special spot.

Over hill and dale, the relatively flat trail leads through lush pastures and idyllic woodlands before reaching the 1,431-meter and highest point known as Adamsloch. Following this, a short descent then leads to Sattelboden: from where you have beautiful views of the Oberseetal valley opposite with its sparkling lake, the remarkable Brünnelistock and diverse alpine operations. On a gently descending path you slowly approach the Mullerenberg with the «Mullerä-Beizli». After Chummenwald ist not far to the «Naturfreundehaus» hiking destination (friends of nature establishment). Once there, you're rewarded with a view over the entire Glarus region.
