At the mountain huts of the Wechsel, the views and the food are a delight

The ridge of the Wechsel is over 15 km long and a popular destination for hikers and families alike. Rustic “Schwaigen” characterise the appearance of the Wechsel and a gentle mountain landscape paves the way to a well-deserved snack.

A hike along the expansive ridge of the Wechsel can be beautiful. But it only becomes truly perfect with a visit to the “Schwaigen” – as the locals affectionately call their mountain huts in addition to the alpine pastures. There you will find good home cooking and the down-to-earth charm of the innkeepers.

Family fun and mountain huts

Those who want to hike to the region’s “Schwaigen” can do so from many places in the Wechsel region. Excellent starting points for this are the Hiking village Kirchberg am Wechsel and the Hiking village Mönichkirchen. For families, Mönichkirchen in particular with the Scooter and mountain cart track or St. Corona with Corona’s “Ameisenpfad” trail and Corona Coaster are of great interest.
