Tour description

The Tour starts with a slight way up to Rossweid and then over the Schwarzenegg to the Blattenegg. From Blattenegg it will be steep. In the area of Laettagaessli you have to be sure-footed and free from giddiness. The decent over Eissee to the station of the cable car Brienzer Rothorn is stony.


Version A: The decent from Rothorn leads down the Nesselwäng and is very steep at the beginning. At the foot of Rothorn where the path looses of steep you pass the alp cheese factory Schlacht. From here you go on a asphalt-street to Soerenberg Place.
(Time: 5.5 hours, length: 12.5 km)

Variante B: Who wants to leave the steep decent can take the cable car Brienzer Rothorn. The cable ride lasts about 10 minutes and if you have a bit luck you can see an ibex.
(Time: 4 hours, length: 7 km)


In the area of Laettagaessli you have to be sure-footed and free from giddiness.
Near (20 meters) the station of the cable car Rossweid (starting point) you can find a bus station. Information about the timetable see under www.postauto.ch
