This village walk is marked by blue walking arrows showing a lizard. The village tour begins at the St. Sebastian Chapel. The path then leads through Aspengasse to old stables and houses. The most exciting buildings are described in detail. The village tour leads past the oldest residential house and the country wall of Gamsen.  The path leads along the " Alte Landstrasse" (old country road) back to the chapel. There are several post stops on that street.
