Circling the idyllic mountain village of Stoos

True to its name, the Ringstrasse runs around the car-free mountain village of Stoos. If you want to weave more nature and seclusion into the short winter hike, you can pull two additional loops.

The Ringstrasse is a lively and varied route. Many places to stop for refreshments and sun terraces invite you to linger. The mountain chapel "Our Lady", which was built 300 years ago entirely of wood, is slightly elevated. With the mighty myths in the background, it becomes a postcard view. The winter hike is particularly suitable for families, as you can go by sleigh at different places next to the road. The additional loops are quieter and more leisurely. On the extension around the Stooshorn or with the excursion into the Teufböni one experiences nature pure.Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator
