best season

Both snowshoe trails start just after the bus stop “Schwanden Säge”.  The trails follow the summer hiking trail until you reach the water reservoir.  From here you slowly climb through forests and meadows, past the “Zenggisboden” to the “Stampfhut”. At this point a breathtaking view of the Lake of Thun and the Bernese Alps await you.

The easier route, “Rüeggers Trail” (blue) follows the same trail for the first 1.8 km.  When you reach “Untere Matte” it turns left and from there you go to “Rüeggershütte”.  Afterwards it will lead you back into the “Dunzenegg Trail”.
