The Hannig is famous for its sunny trails, and this hike is the perfect way to enjoy them in all their splendour.
This themed trail sets off in a southerly direction from the Hannig mountain station, which is accessible via gondola lift. Following the prepared path, hikers eventually reach Café Alpenblick, nestled in the middle of the snowy forest. The zigzag path back down to Saas-Fee begins from behind the café.

A break with coffee and cake at the Restaurant Alpenblick is always great.
