«Gsässweid» Firaplace

Cosy barbecue in the Diemtigtal Nature Park

Short facts

  • Horboden
Somewhat hidden and protected from view is the fireplace on Springenboden, directly below the car park of the Gasthaus Gsässweid.
There is a barbecue area with a grill, seats and enough wood on site. There are no tables available.

For dessert and coffee after the barbecue fun, the two restaurants  Gasthaus Gsässweid and Restaurant Springenboden with their sunny viewing terraces are only a few minutes' walk away. The fireplace is also in the immediate vicinity of the start and end points of the popular «Schwingerweg».
