A varied hike over the Greberegg with its stunning view, past the magnificent Pochtenfall waterfall and along the unspoilt banks of the Suldbach river. The hike is only paved at the beginning and end.

At the starting point, set off in the direction of Aeschiallmi – Brunni. After a short section of paved track, the trail climbs over alpine meadows and through woodland over the Greberegg to Brunni. Stop every now and again to take in the view back to the Aare valley or the Niesen, left over Lake Thun or right into the Suldtal and Kandertal valleys. In the woodland, you can catch a glimpse of Interlaken and Lake Brienz through the gaps in the trees. Straight ahead of you lies the Morgenberghorn. At the Sennhütte Brunni, take a right towards Louene and Suld. The path runs along the hillside to Huetmad where it turns right and descends sharply down to Louene. Continue down towards the valley and you’ll soon reach the Pochtenfall. Here you will find a rest stop, where you can relax for a while and marvel at the power of this majestic waterfall. The water tumbles from a height of over 80 metres down into the valley. Another descent takes you down to the Restaurant Pochtenfall in the Suld valley, which has hosted celebrities from all over the world. Now you join a peaceful, natural, mostly even stretch along the Suldbach. The trail, which is mostly wooded but crosses a brief stretch of meadow, is enjoyable and relaxing. At Staldeweid, the end of the hike is in sight. the remaining stretch to Aeschiried follows a paved track or gravel path beside a tarred road.
