Sonnenweg (Alpen tower - Käserstatt)



5.69 km long
Hiking Trail

Sonnenweg - The right trail for sporty families and nature-loving mountain hikers.

First, a comfortable gondola ride takes you up to the Alpen tower. There you will find the highest restaurant on the Hasliberg at 2,250 metres above sea level. The fantastic 360° panoramic view far beyond the Bernese Oberland and Central Swiss Alps never fails to impress. The Sun Trail starts from here and leads past diverse flora and over alpine pastures. The well-maintained Panorama Trail leads over idyllic Hägen. From Hägen, always with a view of the mountains, the trail continues to Käserstatt, where the hike ends.
