You can enjoy plenty of sunshine, far-reaching views and a splendour of flowers on the high-altitude hike from the Tällihütte to the Wendenläger at the foot of the Titlis.
On the sunny south-facing slopes at the foot of the Gadmerfluh are alpine meadows that not only delight hikers with a colourful display of flowers in summer, but also attract countless butterflies. One of these green areas is the Heuwvorsess, which covers around 8 hectares. Herbs and flowers spice up the fresh mountain air with a delicate fragrance. The view down to the valley floor and the view of the Titlis and the Susten area are magnificent. The Dexter cows that graze here also eat plants that ordinary cows disdain, thus preventing the valuable dry sites from becoming overgrown with forest. The magnificent mountain pasture was awarded the cultural landscape prize of the Oberland-Ost region in 2007. It is located on the high-level trail that leads from the Tällihütte into the valley via the Alpstafel Alpligen to Raflue, Mettlenberg and the Gschletter to the Feldmoosweid. From there, the trail descends via Saageli to Obermaad.
- Regularly check the location and compare it with the schedule. In this way, alternatives, shortcuts, demolition, etc. can be considered in good time.
- In the event of bad weather, turn back in good time or seek shelter. If thunderclouds are gathering, it is advisable to abort the tour as soon as possible.
- Do not leave the marked paths. Stay on the official hiking trails even if trails look like shortcuts. Some of these paths are not maintained and can end in a dead end.
- Lost? Stay together as a group and return to the last known point. Wait for better visibility or call for help.
- Plan enough time and energy reserves for the descent.
- Slow down and take breaks.
- Steep grass, scree and snow slopes are safer to tackle on the ascent than on the descent.
- For the descent, choose the easier option or take the train down to the valley.
- Avoid herds of cattle calmly and at a sufficient distance. Keep dogs on a leash.
- In encounters with guard dogs, the following applies: Remain calm so that the dog realises that you are not a danger to the herd. Keep a generous distance from the herd.
- Allow mountain bikers to pass without obstructing their ride unnecessarily.
- The sun's rays are particularly intense in the mountains. Sun cream with a high protection factor, a sun hat and sunglasses with UV protection should therefore be part of your luggage.
- Even in summer and in good "starting weather", warm clothing and rain protection are part of the equipment. The onion principle with several layers of clothing is recommended.
- Day hiking backpack with rain cover
- Sturdy and comfortable shoes
- Clothing adapted to the weather and hard-wearing (onion principle)
- Charged mobile phone
- Pocket pharmacy
- Beverages and food
- Pocket knife
The Tällihütte is well suited for an eventful overnight stay in a scenic location. The stay can be ideally combined with a journey via Engstlenalp and the subsequent hike over the Tällisattel.
From Basel and Geneva, the fastest route to the Jungfrau Region is via Bern. From Zurich, the route via Lucerne and the Brünig Pass is recommended. The pass is open all year round.
From the south, travel to the Jungfrau Region via the Grimsel or Susten Pass. Both passes are only open in summer. An alternative is the Simplon Pass with subsequent car transport through the Lötschberg tunnel.
The municipality of Meiringen has 835 public parking spaces in the village centre and at the valley station of the Meiringen-Hasliberg cable cars. A large multi-storey car park is located in Hasliberg-Wasserwendi directly by the gondola lift to Käserstatt.
Thanks to its central location in Europe, Switzerland is served by international trains from over 12 countries. Within Switzerland, Intercity trains run from Basel and Lucerne directly to the Jungfrau Region. Travellers from Zurich change trains in Bern. The trains run every half hour.
From Interlaken and Lucerne we travel comfortably on the Zentralbahn panorama trains directly to Meiringen. From Brünig-Hasliberg we have several post bus connections at our disposal.
