Tour description

The border trail Napfbergland is a long distance trail, ca. 115-km long.

The Border Trail follows the culturally and historically significant border between the cantons of Bern and Lucerne. The trail begins at the Baroque monastery of St. Urban and leads up the Brienz Rothorn Mountain. Like a veritable string of pearls, leisuretime and adventure offerings line this trail. The hiking tour through an almost pristine landscape takes you on trails for all levels of skills, including wildly romantic ones, from St. Urban via the Napf Mountain (1,408 m a.s.l.) the Turner (1,215 m a.s.l.) and the Wachthubel (1,414 m. a.s.l.) up the Brienz Rothorn Mountain (2,350 m a.s.l.).
