Directions

The circular trail starts at the church car park in the centre of the hamlet of Montal and leads across meadows and woodland, past two World War II bunkers. These are bunker no. 10, which was once equipped with weapons (guns and machine guns), and the "Genussbunker", a natural bunker, where local and international cheeses are stored and mature over months or years. The bunkers are privately owned and can only be visited with a guide. In summer, weekly guided tours are organised (booking required).

How to get there

By bus 422 to Montal/Mantana, stop in the centre of the village. Alternatively, take bus 460 to the bus stop "Abzweigung Montal/Bivio Mantana" and then walk approximately 800 m to the church square.
