The fairytale winter landscape in the Langis/Glaubenberg offers a unique backdrop for snowshoe hikers.

As the name Jänzi Panorama Trail suggests, this marked snowshoe trail leads up to the Jänzi, from where you can enjoy magnificent views of the surrounding mountains and the Sarneraa valley.

The pink-coloured start panel at the Langis cross-country skiing hut gives an overview of the circular snowshoeing tour. It passes the Schwendi-Kaltbad restaurant, continues along the meandering Schliere, branches off eastwards at the bridge at Point 1409 up to Egg (Point 1608) and over the ridge in a northerly direction to Jänzi. It is worth taking a break at the summit cross and savouring the unique scenery. The way back leads over broad hills to Wolfetsmatt-Hohnegg and back to the Langis car park (last section along the road.).
