Panoramic Viewpoints

 

Things to know:

If you are willing to reach closer to the viewpoints and only walk the last minutes, ask for the access maps at the Tourism Office. Be careful however! They remain hiking trails and even for a few minutes’ walk, it is better to have hiking shoes.

The advice of the Tourism Office:

Walking times are only given as an indicator and are only true for the way to the viewpoints. Consider approximatively the same return time, depending on the difference in height.

LWeather can change very quickly in the mountains. Make sure you have warm and rain clothes, water, food, a phone and the rescue number: 3250.
