The hike connects the Diemtigtal Nature Park with the municipality of Zweisimmen. On the Scheidegg, an unexpectedly wild mountain world awaits you at the foot of the Spillgerten.

Your pass hike starts at the very back of the Diemtigtal Nature Park and with it the ascent to "Scheidegg", where the two municipalities of Diemtigen and Zweisimmen meet. Rock deer and eagles feel particularly at home in the "Alpetli": with a bit of luck, you can observe the shy mountain dwellers in their natural environment with binoculars. On the "Scheidegg", the highest point of your hike, you can enjoy a stay in a wild, barren mountain world and perhaps even discover a marmot or two. From here, the varied descent begins across alpine meadows, through forests and along mountain streams to Blankenburg.
