Standing 1,016 m above sea level, the idyllic village of Menzberg is the highest village in the Napf region and boasts an unparalleled 360-degree panoramic view. In both the autumn and winter seasons, beach chairs are positioned at especially beautiful viewpoints.
During the autumn and winter months, Menzberg often sits above a sea of fog. The multi-route hike features seven beach chairs, each positioned at especially beautiful viewpoints to while away the hours. In each beach chair, village stories by Xaver Vogel and background music provide a unique visual and sound experience. The beach chairs are put out from October to March, offering an experience in any weather, and are accessible at any time of day.
A map showing the current locations of the beach chairs can be found at www.menzberg-mit-weitsicht.ch.
