The hike begins with a panoramic gondola ride up to the Alpen tower. The fantastic 360° panoramic view far beyond the Bernese Oberland and Central Switzerland's High Alps never ceases to impress. From Planplatten via Balmeregghorn, the path winds along the mountain to Tannensee. Breathtaking views impress from the very first moment. From Tannalp below the Spycherflue, the path leads to Engstlenalp. The Engstlensee invites you to relax and refresh yourself. The return journey is enjoyed by post bus to Meiringen.
