Short and intense - or the cool, contemplative approach: the two ways to Kröntenhütte!

The normal approach from Erstfeld via Bodenberg offer in two different ascent options. The Geissfad is the shortest and steepest way to get to the Kröntenhütte. The way over the Chüeplangg is a little more kind, but also longer. It rises more gently than the Geissfad and is particularly valued on hot summer days, because from Bodenberg the 'Chüeplanggenweg' follows the line of the stream for most of the way. Up to Bodenberg there is possibility to take an 'Alpentaxi', or private vehicle (CHF 20 tariff). Signposted parking at Bodenberg.
