The steep panoramic trail between Stand and the Trübsee upper terminus offers great views of the mountains. The tour impresses with its fantastic views. The geological footpath between Trübsee and Stand explains the geological history of the Alps thanks to info panels that also explain the geology of the TITLIS area.
