- Damüls | Circular hike from peak to peak
Magnificent circular hike at over 1,400 m altitude with a unique mountain panorama.
From Damüls (1,425 m) you walk on the sidewalk in the direction of Oberdamüls and after the Gasthaus Glöckle continue on the well prepared path next to the cross-country trail to Unterdamüls. Then uphill to the Gasthaus Jägerstüble (1,614 m). A high path leads up to approx. 1,700 m (great views to the Rätikon mountain), past the Oberdamülser Alpe (1,667 m) to Oberdamüls. From the Hotel Alpenstern you walk along the street back to the starting point.

From the village Damüls, one goes for a few minutes on the sidewalk in the direction of Oberdamüls until one reaches the signpost directing you leftwards to the Unterdamülser Alpe (mountain). From there it is a comfortable walk up the slope along the cross-country ski trail. Some are already content with this glistening winter stroll and can return on the same way back to Damüls.
Those that stay on the route, continue the ascent (130 altitude meters) to the Jägerstüble. There one crosses the street and follows the hiking trail to reach the, situated at 1700 meters, panoramwalk. From here one continues comfortably up to the Oberdamülser peak. The view from here ranges from the Damülser Horn (mountain) and the Löffelspitze to the Rätikon, where also the Schesaplana, Zimba, Drei Türme and the Sulzfluh can be seen. At the Oberdamülser peak one crosses the ski slopes and under the chairlift to continue to Oberdamüls. The prepared snowtrail ends at the Hotel Alpenstern and the Oberdamülser ski slopes. From there the trail goes on cleared roads back to the starting point.
It is worthwhile to wait for the perfect winter conditions before attempting the walk. An important reason for this is that the route may not be useable all winter long. The preparation of thee crossing between the Unterdamülser peak and the Höhenweg (path) needs a lot of snow fall.
