This circular route teaches you about one of the most interesting chapters in the history of the Oberland.

Along the way you encounter eight information boards about the von Rappard family and the artworks of Clara von Rappard. You also come to a series of stunning viewpoints framing Lake Thun, Interlaken and the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. The circular route devoted to the von Rappard family is a collaborative project between the community of Matten, the «Clara von Rappard» society and the Interlaken art society.
