The Prättigauer Höhenweg lives up to its name: Hike in four days along the altitude curves, on one side the limestone scenery of the Rätikon, on the other side changing views and deep views. The tour is also suitable as a family tour. Note the type of accommodation (camp in the mountain huts) and the length of the tour. With some additional summit ascents, the hike also conjures up a long-lasting smile on the faces of ambitious mountain hikers. Promised.
