Balmberg Chamben

Balmberg Chamben







Tour description

The rocky Chamben (1251 m) was the highlight of this circular walk starting from the Kurhaus Balmberg. I'm not exaggerating when I say that it sits majestically like a king above the Hofbergli. The sight certainly deserves a photograph. The path led us on to the Hinterer Hofbergli via the Hintere Schmidematt. We didn't want to miss out on its delicious meat loaf, while we enjoyed the view of the Bernese Alps and the Three-Lakes Region.


Good to know:
The post bus can also be rented exclusively for group tours. The post bus to the Balmberg goes daily and all-year-round.
On the way there are several restaurants.
