Golden autumn in Switzerland's largest nature park
face Sandro Erdin, access_time 15.10.2020
Autumn comes to the country. The forests glow in warm colours and the leaves rustle with every step.
Now is the time to enjoy nature on leisurely walks or extended hikes. Cattle have long since left the Alps and silence is returning to the mountains. Every now and then the first frost sugars the meadows and forests.
Enjoy the golden autumn in Switzerland's largest nature park! The Parc Ela attracts visitors with fantastic walks, regional products and exciting museums.
Use your Hotelcard and travel to places where autumn is particularly beautiful. In addition to attractive discounts of up to 50% off the regular overnight rate, you will also receive the Parc Ela Card for free. The use of mountain railways and post bus and the entrance to the Museum "Regiunal" are free of charge. This autumn, you will benefit twice over with your Hotelcard!
We will show you a few highlights of the region and of course we have the right hotel recommendations for you.
Hiking in the Val Faller
You can reach the about 4 km long wild valley from Mulegns. The valley comprises three hamlets, former Walser settlements, which are inhabited all year round. With a bit of luck, you might spot ibex and chamois here.
It is said that the best barley soup is at the alpine hut Piz Plata in Tga. In October it opens for guests on request.

Magical Alp Flix
The high plateau of Alp Flix with its dreamy mountain lakes and the protected high moorland enchants every hiker. After a short or even a long hike, you can enjoy a delicious platter or homemade cake at the Cotti Agricultura, where the Mongolian yurts are located.
