This circular route around the Schwarzsee lake in Canton Freiburg is located in the midst of wonderfully picturesque scenery. With it's impressive mountain panorama and glistening lake, the region is ideal for extended tours.

The tour begins at the Gypsera bus stop in Schwarzsee village. Right from the start, the route affords stunning views over the glistening waters and the hilly Sense region. First you pass a superb meadow and then reach the picturesque lakeside path. The shores are unspoilt, totally natural and the variety of fauna and flora is most impressive.

The scenery progressively changes, as the path sometimes leads over rises and then past peaceful, shady forest sections. A special attraction is the «Schwarzsee Dragon», recently created from iron and sheet metal by a local artistic blacksmith. It stands majestically atop a 20-metre high rock and is a popular photo subject.

The path is also called the Hexenweg (Witches Path). Along the way, local fables and tales are presented at various points at which you can actively take part or learn. A mystical adventure for children and the ever-young. Rest stops are found overall along the route, always surrounded by a fascinating mountain backdrop. Simply well-worth seeing.
