The idyllically-situated Arni sun terrace, high above Gurtnellen, offers a place of complete relaxation. The small, crystal-clear reservoir invites you to stay a little longer and enjoy yourself. The view into the Maderanen valley with the Bristenstock is truly magnificent. The route continues along a wide gravel road, taking you to Gurtnellen village.
