From Springenboden to Mäggisserhore: discover a true hiking gem on the Niesen chain
The impressive hike with the destination «peak of the Mäggisserhore» starts at the «Hasenloch» car park in Horboden. If you travel by public transport, the starting point can be reached on foot from the PostBus stop «Horboden, Chirel» in approx. 1 h 30 min. Although the hike begins on an asphalt road, the higher you climb, the more it unfolds as a true hiking gem.
From the alp «Hore», a steep dirt road leads to the alp «Ober Mechlistall». Past the picturesque lake «Mechlistallseeli», a clearly visible hiking trail leads further and further up to the summit of the Mäggisserhore. At the top, you have a breathtaking view of the Diemtigtal Nature Park, the Simmen and Kander valleys, Lake Thun and Lake Brienz and the neighbouring Alpine peaks of the Bernese Oberland, which seem close enough to touch from up here.
