Furkla-Höhenweg l Bürserberg

This hike starts comfortably with the ascent with the Dorf-  and Panorama cable car from Brand. From the mountain station of the panorama cable car directly at the Burtschasattel, the path leads in the direction of Faregg. At Faregg along the goods road always follow the signs towards Furkla Alpe. During the alpine season (mid-July - end of August), the Furkla Alpe invites you to stop for a bite to eat. The way back leads along the same path or alternatively via Bürserberg. For variant two, follow the signs downhill in the direction of Bürserberg. At the first junction turn right and follow the Alte Statt Weg uphill towards Faregg/Burtschasattel to get back to the starting point. You can return to the valley with the Dorf- und Panoramabahn.
