best season

A huge palette of natural diversity awaits you. Our tip: Leave room for your own impressions and discoveries and sharpen your eye for the inconspicuous.

Enjoy the silence of the mountain world and head for the Spillgerte nature reserve. As soon as you reach the "Alpetli", it's worth pausing every now and then to look at the rocks of the "Seehore" with your binoculars. Can you spot the ibexes and chamois? From "Scheidegg" you are in the municipal area of Zweisimmen. After the climb along the "Fromatt" ridge, you have completed the most strenuous part of the hike. A short snack at the Stierenberg mountain inn is almost obligatory. Continue around the "Muntiggalm" to the popular Seebergsee: the lake surrounded by rockslide boulders, stone pines, spruces and dwarf shrubs is your last stop before the upcoming descent. The popular excursion destination is very busy on peak days - as soon as you discover it, you know why.

On your return to the starting point, enjoy the mountain panorama to the full: You will hardly find a more varied landscape on a high-altitude hike.
