It is nature that sets the beat here – and it is slow but constant. Broad views into the green valley accompany hikers who make their way to the Alpine meadow cabins and refuges in the vicinity. There are numerous possibilities for a bite to eat or a drink around Chienes-Kiens, and they are well worth a stop. Not just because of the location, but also because of the food.
The Rifugio Rastner-Rastnerhütte at 1,930 m (6,332 ft.), for instance, which is the perfect invitation to rest in its cozy farmhouse parlor or to soak up some rays on the terrace.
Or easier to reach and thus ideal for families: the Hofer-Hof snack station and the Moarhof-Alm, a very nice alpine hut near Hofern/Corti. Where people can be by themselves, where they find tranquility, where they have also accomplished something – that it where they will feel good, and where things taste the best, too!
