best season

You start at the Anger cattle showground and climb almost 1000 metres in altitude on this day. The climb to the Turne is definitely worth it, because the panoramic view is unique.

The post bus takes you comfortably from Oey-Diemtigen to the starting point, the Anger cattle showground in Zwischenflüh. From here, the hiking trail leads up towards the Seebergsee lake, whereby you hike along a section of the mountain road towards Meniggrund. Shortly afterwards, however, you take the well-maintained hiking trail again, up to Tärfete, where you quickly gain height. The view is already brilliant here, but the highlight, the Turne, is still to come. The panoramic view on the Turne is simply unique and a fine lunch from the rucksack is just what you need.

As soon as you have had your fill, you start the descent via the "Pfaffe" to the "Rinderalp". Here you can fortify yourself with a fine coffee and local products. Via Alp Tschuggen - where you can also taste and buy products from the alp - you hike further downhill to the village of Diemtigen to the post bus stop. Optionally, you can also hike the last section to Oey-Diemtigen railway station, which will take you an additional 30 minutes.

General information

Directions

From the Viehschauplatz, take the hiking trail towards Seebergsee. After a short ascent, the hiking trail runs along the mountain road towards Meniggrund. After a short stretch, follow the hiking trail towards "Tärfete", where you will quickly gain altitude. You pass "Vordertärfete" and in "Hintertärfete" you continue on the hiking trail towards "Turnen". For the descent, you go down via "Pfaffe" to "Rinderalp", then via "Alp Tschuggen" to "Diemtigen". From there, the post bus takes you back to Oey-Diemtigen station. If the timetable doesn't work out, you can also reach the village of Oey on foot (approx. 30 min., not included in the hiking time). 

Safety Guidelines

Your hike will take you through a variety of pastures - always keep your distance from the four-legged alp inhabitants.
