«Rondom Hasle»

The insider tip among the circular trails, largely on a natural surface through gentle terrain, sun-kissed and particularly beautiful, especially in winters with little snow.

The circular trail around Haslen, which is also known as the "Ticino of Innerrhoden", is a delight with its sun-drenched route through gentle terrain and constantly surprising views. As you descend, you leave the village centre of Haslen and after just a few steps you are in the wide, open, agricultural area of Hinterhaslen. After crossing a small stream, the meadow path is more or less flat and leads past well-tended farms in the direction of Teufen. However, at the edge of the forest, at the "Auen" property, do not follow the path down to the confluence of the Sitter and Rotbach rivers (Strom bathing area), but turn right and at the next property you reach the farm track, which you follow to the main road to Teufen. Cross this road and after a few metres on the pavement, the hiking trail leads past a wayside cross with a beautiful view over to the neighbouring village of Stein AR to Innerrhoden's most beautifully situated wayside shrine (St. Wendelin), including a view of the Säntis. On this section you have an enormously beautiful view of the Alpstein greeting you on the horizon. With the Hasl parish church in view, the meadow path now leads down to the road you crossed earlier and it is now only a few steps back to the starting point.

Tip: In the morning and evening hours, the Alpstein shines particularly beautifully in the distance. Take your swimming and sunbathing gear with you and make a detour to the Strom bathing area.

Note: Please follow the white signposts "Rondom Hasle". The trail can be walked in both directions.
