best season

The hike connects the Diemtigtal Nature Park with the municipality of Zweisimmen. On the Scheidegg, an unexpectedly wild mountain world awaits you at the foot of the Spillgerten.

Your pass hike starts at the very back of the Diemtigtal Nature Park and with it the ascent to "Scheidegg", where the two municipalities of Diemtigen and Zweisimmen meet. Rock deer and eagles feel particularly at home in the "Alpetli": with a bit of luck, you can observe the shy mountain dwellers in their natural environment with binoculars. On the "Scheidegg", the highest point of your hike, you can enjoy a stay in a wild, barren mountain world and perhaps even discover a marmot or two. From here, the varied descent begins across alpine meadows, through forests and along mountain streams to Blankenburg.

General information


Follow the hiking trail from "Senggiweid" via "Würzi" in the direction of "Alpetli". The first part of the trail leads along the Grimmimutz adventure trail with its many play posts. From "Würzi", the mountain trail winds its way up via "Alpetli" to the pass "Scheidegg". From here the descent begins in the direction of "Fromatt". You hike past the Fromatt hut and down into the "Fromattchäle". Follow the winding hiking trail until you get closer and closer to your destination via "Sitewald/Baawald". When you come out of the forest, you reach "Betelriedgasse" and encounter the first inhabited houses of Blankenburg. Follow Betelriedgasse to Lenkstrasse, where you cross the main road and follow Bühlmattweg to Blankenburg station. Attention: "Stop on demand" applies here (to make the train stop, press the button on the station building). If you want to hike longer or don't want to wait for the train, you can add another 15 minutes and follow the main road to Zweisimmen.

  • Clothing appropriate to the weather and temperature

Don't forget the binoculars, so the rock deer and the eagle appear particularly close!
