The Staubfall in Heutal
My Top Spot on Hot Summer Days
In summer, I love nothing more than to be out and about in the mountains. On particularly hot days such as today however, I have to set off at 5 am to avoid being exposed to the baking heat. Unfortunately, we got up late today so we will undertake a short, shady hike to the Staubfall in Heutal – wild bathing included.
But today it is simply too hot, so we return the way we came and marvel at the impressive river landscape. Arriving at the Fischbach we take our shoes off; sit down on a round stone and stretch out our feet in the ice-cold mountain water – brrrr. We give our legs a break, already red from the cold water and refresh our arms. A wonderful feeling spreads through the entire body; a feeling which can only be felt to a limited extent on bathing days in the swimming pool.
We stay a while at the Fischbach and let the sun shine on our stomachs before it is time to return. Refreshments are available near the car park at Tante Emma or in the Heutaler Hof. The walk is suitable for families with children, especially since the Staubfall can be reached in half an hour. From the Fischbach waterfall the path is no longer accessible with children's buggies.
