Having passed the gully the path carries on up until entering a tunnel and then descends back down at a level below the carriageable road. We cross a stream of water and get back to Ad Auserbinn. Having crossed the small village we follow the road which takes us back to Binnegga, with its Chapel of Our Lady of Sorrows, a panoramic spot on the Goms Valley. From here onwards the path continues along the mountainside coasting an ancient water deviation canal known as the Trusera, and in a brief amount of time we reach the village of Ernen which is the most populated amongst the villages of the entire Park. Ernen was once the capital of the Goms district and municipal court, as witnessed by the dungeons of the municipal building and the three pillars of the ancient gallows on the hill found between Ernen and Mühlebach. In 1979, Ernen has been awarded the Swiss Henri-Louis Wakker da Heimatschutz prize for the preservation of the historical cluster and its magnificent buildings, such as the Tellenhaus where some of Switzerland’s most ancient frescos can be found, such as the ones by William Tell, Kapuzinerhaus, and the ones at the home of Jost Sigristen. In the last few decades, Ernen has been building a solid reputation as the “music village”, thanks to the establishment of a summer concert season hosting internationally renowned artists.
From Ernen a marked track finally takes us back to Mühlebach, which brags the most ancient inhabited cluster of wooden homes in the whole of Switzerland.
Notable Items along the Track
from Mühlebach a recent (May 2015) suspension bridge crossing the Rodano River caters to a linkage with the Furgangen train station (Briga – Andermatt train path).
Accesso con mezzi pubblici
