An enjoyable hike across the panoramic bridge and through Margel to the Blueme viewing tower.

This enjoyable hike begins in the village of Sigriswil in the Schulhaus Raft car park. At the end of the car park, you come to the spectacular panoramic bridge to Aeschlen, which is 340 metres long and approximately 180 metres high. This Prix Acier award-winning bridge costs CHF 8.00 to cross. Alternatively, you take the Gummischlucht themed trail (adds on 30 minutes). Passing the Hotel Panorama, you then take a left, following Aeschlenstrasse for a short while. You then turn right onto a trail ascending to Allmid (Emmitweg). A narrow road continues through Äbes Moos on a flat gradient and then turns into a trail leading to Margel, where you can enjoy a unique view of the Sigriswilergrat mountain range, Lake Thun and the Swiss Prealps. The trail then continues to Margelsattel and over the Tschingelallmi to the Blueme viewing tower, which offers a view to the Jura mountains and the Bernese Alps. At the foot of the viewing tower there’s a family fire pit with tables and benches where you can stop for a nice, long rest.
