The historic mountain farms of Partschins/Parcines

General description

Wonderful four-hour difficult mountain hike to the lonely mountain farms of the Vertigner and Tablander hamlets.

Tabland and Vertigen are two small hamlets on the steep slopes of the Partschinser Sonnenberg. 
Here you can find the oldest and partly historical mountain farms (reclamation in the High Middle Ages) of the Partschins municipality. Approximately one thousand metres in altitude separate the farms from the village. 

The mountain hamlet Tabland (1243 m) consists of the oldest Partschins mountain farms: Egger, Brunner, Oberlechen (1350 m), Raweiner, Prünster (1196 m). From the Prünster, which runs a restaurant in addition to the farmhouse, you have a wonderful view of the remaining farms Steiner (1442 m), Fletscher (1290 m), Rammwald and Dursterhof (1057 m).
