STOTZIGEN FIRSTEN

from Realp, Canton of Uri

panorami

A lovely day in the paradise of Uri, relatively safe even after a heavy snowfall, with exciting views.

Also feasible with snowshoes.


Access

You get to Realp from Andermatt, following the road to the Furka Pass, that in winter stops right at Realp. You park there (you will need 3 Fr.s in coins for the ticket)

Ascent

You go through the village and take the road that runs along the railway (the summer one, not the one that goes into the tunnel); the road crosses the tracks and then leads to the Rotondohütte (directions).
