You simply can't miss the stars of the trail. It is not for nothing that they belong to the family of the big bears. Set out and discover the five big bears, find out where they live and how big they can grow. Once you have found and measured all the bears, you will find out which is the biggest big bear. Compared to the trail in summer, the route from the Tschuggenhütte to the Bergkirchli is slightly different in winter. The route leads along the winter hiking trail instead of the summer hiking trail (this is a ski slope in winter). Therefore, in winter you will only find 5 bears on the trail instead of 6.
