best season

Away from the mainstream. A varied hike over meadows and through forests to the unique waterfall "Sprutz".

Nature wants you back. The new claim of Switzerland Tourism fits perfectly with this hike. The trail leads across open meadows and past alpine huts into the Schilttal. A look back at the snow-covered Bernese Alps is always worthwhile. Caution is advised on the descent to the waterfall. The path is steep and often slippery. On hot days the water serves as a welcome cool-down.

After the obligatory selfispot at the waterfall, the trail winds through coniferous forests and open meadows back to Mürren.

Tip

In summer and autumn the Älplers sell delicious mountain cheese.
