Swiss Hiking Night: towards the sunrise 16./17. 7.2022

Guided night hike with cosy breakfast

Short facts

  • Oey
  • For individual guests

Together with our hiking guide Ueli Kammer, we start the guided nocturnal tour in Meniggrund and quickly gain altitude in the moonlight.

As dawn begins to break, we enjoy the impressive far-reaching view over the Diemtigtal Nature Park and the adjacent Simmental Valley on our way via Schwalmflue and Niderhore. The rising sun is another unique highlight! The path leads us to our destination, the Seebergsee. In the Seeberg mountain restaurant we fortify ourselves with a well-deserved breakfast. 


Saturday, 16 July to Sunday, 17 July 2022

For safety reasons, the hike can only take place in dry weather. We will inform you in the week before the hiking night about the realisation.

Meeting and end point

We meet at 11.30 pm at the Zwischenflüh post office (Seebergsee junction) and drive together from there to the starting point of the hike. The following day we will return here in the course of Sunday morning.

  • Transfer from the meeting point to the starting point and back again
  • Guided night hike with hike leader Ueli Kammer
