The hike to the Sausläger is an extended hike from the famous Mountain-View Trail. From Sausläger you have further options to hike to the famous Lobhornhütte, Sulwaldhütte or Isenfluh.

This hiking tour can be started from Mürren or directly from Allmendhubel. The hike first leads over the "Mountain-View Trail" to Pletschenalp, where no major ascent or descent is possible. Now we continue over the Marchegg down to the Sausläger. The hike can also be extended there accordingly. The way back through the “Spryssenwald” is very pleasant and without major ascents.
