Hike from Riederalp to Blatten via the Knebelbrücke bridges

  • start: Riederalp, top station of aerial cable car (west)
  • destination: Blatten

The trail takes you from Riederalp up to Riederfurka, where you can enjoy a fabulous panoramic vista of mountains and glaciers. Tip: If you take advantage of the cable car for this section, the rest of the route is mostly downhill! Follow the signs to Knebelbrücke along a beautifully laid-out path to the Rotbrüch turning and on via Knebelbrücke to Oberried. Here you follow the Massaweg trail towards the Gibidum reservoir/Blatten. Cross the bridge below the impressive Gibidum dam. On the other side of the valley, follow the easy trail up to the mountain village of Blatten. From there you catch the PostBus, train and cable car taking you via Brig and Mörel back to Riederalp.
