You’ll find various quotes from famous women around the world all along the snowshoe route between Brandalp and the village of Unterbäch. From the village of Unterbäch, take the chairlift to Brandalp, where the first quotation is already displayed. East of the restaurant, take the road towards the valley until the first bend. Follow one of the many purple "Frauen Zitatenweg" signs and walk along the "Bielsuon" stream until you reach the hamlet of Ta on the left. The second quotation is in a sharp left-hand bend, before plunging into a forest of larches and spruces, and descending gently towards the village. Note that the path, which has plenty of places to sit and rest, then leads out of the forest and the village of Unterbäch appears before you in an impressive mountain setting. The highlight of the hike are two more quotes next to the Elisabeth Kopp monument, from Federal Councillors Micheline Calmy-Rey and Viola Amherd. A total of 14 quotations from women from all over the world are scattered along the route.
