Tufa path in Wiesaz valley
The Gönningen tufa educational trail has a length of around 5 km and runs from Gönningen Town Hall through the idyllic Wiesaz valley to behind the Gönningen lakes. The formation of tufa, its use and importance for the region is clearly explained on several information boards. The starting point is the hiking car park at the Gönningen lakes or the Gönningen Town Hall.

Please avoid to step on moss-tufa cushions. They grow continuously but very slowly. The filigree structures are very vulnerable, if you step on them, they will be destroyed and have to regenerate over a long period of time.
