Winter hiking tour Laufenburg–Kaisten–Oeschgen

All-weather hike in Argovia

The hike by postbus goes from Laufenburg to the Heuberg, Kaisten and forward to Oeschgen.

This route can easily be done even in bad weather, because firstly, the paths are mostly gravel-covered and not particularly steep, secondly, there are restaurants halfway through where you can eat, drink and warm up, and thirdly, the hike continues a beautiful landscape. From Laufenburg train station, a road leads to the forest. Via Waldhaus you reach the top of the Heuberg in several bends. The hill offers a pretty view of the Fricktal and even has a mountain restaurant. Beautiful views of the Aargau Jura, the Rhine and the Black Forest are offered during the gentle descent to the intermediate destination Kaisten. The second part of the hike also begins with an ascent. A beautiful view opens up after the Ba-Ischlag forest area. The descent to Oeschgen is particularly attractive - here you can enjoy the vastness of the Fricktal.
