The clear, fresh mountain air, full of the buzzing of insects and the sounds of cow bells means a traditional snack tastes even better. You definitely ought to try local produce like bacon, cheese and milk, made by our Alpine dairy farmers with a great deal of passion and which they offer to you as refreshment.
In any event it is well worth pausing for thought along the path and devoting yourself to the unspoilt natural surroundings, the tranquillity and the mountain panorama. Mossy Alpine soils tempt you to enjoy a cosy lounge in the grass, shut your eyes briefly and be beguiled by the fragrance of the Alpine roses. Listen to the whistle of the marmots as they keep a close eye on who is coming along the path.
