Mattenweg (Münster - Reckingen)

  • start: Münster, train station
  • destination: Reckingen, train station

As a separate tour or in combination with other sections of the extensive winter hiking trail network in Goms, this tour is considered a special treat for nature lovers. Across the snow-covered mats, you enjoy the vastness of the valley and yet feel safe among the alpine mountain ranges.

The well-prepared trail runs not far from and practically parallel to the cross-country tracks of the Loipe Goms. The Jematten bridge over the young Rhone is used in partnership by both winter hikers and cross-country skiers to cross the flowing water.

A look back is worthwhile. The mountain village of Münster makes a particularly beautiful photo motif from the Matte. The mighty Galenstock towers as a silhouette in the background.

At Überrotten you enter the mountain village of Reckingen. A detour to the magnificent Walliser Stadel, built in 1617, is recommended. The old agricultural building is considered a valuable witness to traditional Valais architectural culture and even serves as a photo spot for the Grand Tour in summer.
