Passing the Chuburg and the remains of the walls of Matscher Castle, we hike to the idyllic mountain village of Matsch and to the archaeological site of Ganglegg.

This tour takes us from the small town of Schluderns to Churburg Castle. After a visit to this very well preserved fortress, we walk up across wide meadows and along a irrigation channel to the remains of the walls of Matsch Castle. During this section we have wonderful views of the Ortler massif. Now we head up the other side of the Matschertal valley to the idyllic mountain village of Matsch. After a tour, we walk on the Sonnensteig and along the Leitenwaal to the archaeological site of Ganglegg and further down to Schluderns.
