Unterpartnom - Oberpartnom - Steris | Sonntag

The cable car takes you from the valley station in Sonntag across the valley to the mountain station in Sonntag-Stein. This beautiful circular hike starts at the mountain station with a short ascent before the hiking trail branches off to Alpe Steris. A forest path leads to Schwand and then you reach Alpe Steris via a forest road. At the foot of the Breithorn you can take a break in the Sterisstüble. The trail then continues along a meadow path across flowering alpine pastures to the Oberpartnom alpine pasture. At the Alpe Oberpartnom, the Breithornhütte invites you to take a short break. Take the goods path downhill to the Unterpartnom alpine pasture, from where a meadow hiking trail leads directly back to the starting point.Attention: The hiking trail over the Schwand is only recommended in dry weather!
