The Kistenstöckli, or in Romansh, Muot da Rubi, at 2746 m above sea level is the small local mountain of the Bifertenhütte. From a distance, the Kistenstöckli stands out above all due to its flattened shape. It is located between the Kisten and Limmeren Pass and forms the border between Grisons and Glarus. From the summit, there is a wonderful view of the Val Frisal in the North and the Limmerensee in the Canton of Glarus in the South.
On the way to the Kistenstöckli
