Over 30 windmills line the way between the Winzenberg and Tufertschwil. And each of these handmade windmills, which begin to turn as a breeze sets in, represents a local profession: such as planing by a carpenter, the careful stirring of a pan by a chef, the care a farmer gives his cows and the serving of a refreshingly cold beer. A brief description of each job is there for people to read; hence offering interesting information to accompany lively hikes for all the family.
Stopping for a break by the quaint Tufertschwil hamlet is almost a must; as it’s here you discover a large playground by the guesthouse Landgasthof Rössli; the “Buurehof zom Aaluege“ that welcomes visitors to a view of farm-style life, and the typewriter museum just a few steps away.
Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, Asterix and Obelix and more comic figures wait to be seen. And the carved figures naturally point out the next leg on the "Comicweg" - a circular path from Tufertschwil that’s also suitable for prams. Underway you also discover plenty of grill spots to stop for a picnic too.
The windmill and comic figure paths are open for you to enjoy as of mid March until mid November.
