The Talalpsee on the Kerenzerberg in Glarus is a pearl worth discovering!
Filzbach on the Kerenzerberg is the starting point for this hike. We climb up to the Habergschwänd mountain inn, always with a fantastic view of the fjord-like Walensee, the village of Amden lying on a sunny terrace and the striking Churfirsten peaks. A terrace with a magnificent panorama awaits us at the Habergschwänd mountain inn, where it is well worth taking a break.
Then we continue towards the Talalpsee. This enchanting place is hidden in a small side valley, which is already part of the UNESCO World Heritage Tectonic Arena Sardona.
After the lake, we can take a break.
After circling the lake, the hike takes us back down to Filzbach.
By the way: If you want to make it easier for yourself, save yourself the ascent or descent and take the chairlift from Filzbach to Habergschwänd.
At the fireplace at the Talalpsee «brötle» and put your feet in the cold water!
