Wiriehorn winter hiking trail



6.26 km long
Winter Hiking
You can reach the starting point of the mountain-valley-winter hiking trail comfortably by chairlift. On the way you will be offered an impressive panorama with far-reaching views over the Diemtigtal.

How about a warming coffee or tea at the mountain hotel Wiriehorn before you start your hike? The 6-seater chairlift takes you comfortably to the mountain station on Nüegg. During the descent you can enjoy the view of the surrounding mountain peaks and the Diemtigtal valley. Further down you reach Entschwil and the impressive high plateau with its magnificent houses in the traditional Simmental style. The trail continues through forests and hamlets back to the valley station.
