The Brünig Pass links the cantons of Bern and Obwalden, that is to say the Bernese Oberland with central Switzerland. At an altitude of only 1,008 metres above sea level, the Brünig Pass is rather modest in height, but for hikers it is a worthwhile and readily accessible starting point. That's because both the road for motor traffic and the Lucerne-Interlaken railway route cross the pass. Getting there by train or PostBus is therefore the obvious choice.
Hikes to the Brienzer Rothorn, the Wilerhorn and along the Hasliberg panorama trail are particularly popular. The latter begins behind the Waldegg Restaurant and initially winds its way through a fairytale-like forest. After just a few minutes we come across a sizeable so-called 'glacial erratic' made of Mittagfluh granite. An information plaque on the boulder reveals that it was "deposited by the ice age Aare glacier more than 10,000 years ago".
But it isn't only large boulders that have a story to tell. We happen to be in the Gallenplatten area as well as on a section of the ViaSbrinz, the historic mule track between central Switzerland and Domodossola in northern Italy. At Gällistein we leave the forest and start to enjoy the beautiful views from which the panorama trail takes its name. We can see across the Aare valley all the way to Lake Brienz and famous mountains like the Wetterhorn and Eiger start coming into view opposite us. The trail is at its most beautiful on sunny days when the lowlands disappear into fog and the blanketing of fog stretches from the Aare valley through to Lakes Brienz and Thun.
The route of the trail is obvious and cannot be missed. From the Brünig Pass (1008 m), walk along the road for a short distance to the Restaurant Waldegg. The trail leads into the forest immediately behind the restaurant. Now keep following the "Panoramaweg Hasliberg" signposts and continue on to Reuti Post (1052 m) via Gallenplatten (1080 m) - Gällistein (1015 m) - Hohfluh/Unterdorf (1025 m) - Hohfluh (1052 m) and Wasserwendi (1200 m).
Pleasant panoramic hike along the entire Hasliberg. Yellow waymarkers; additional pink trail markers in winter. Difficulty: T1.
