Tour description

The starting point of this hike is located next to the restaurant just above the summit station.There is a short ascent before the trail takes a left turn to the west, leading along the slope to the Tuba lookout point. This is the starting point of a wonderful panoramic trail to the Oberberghorn: to the left, the waters of Lake Brienz glisten like a turquoise gemstone, to the right you can survey the majestic Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau peaks. The trail leads below the Alpine Garden straight back to the summit station. Alpine Garden; The Alpine Garden is well worth a visit. Alpine flowers in bloom provide a display of riotous colour and a bewitchingly lovely scent.
