At the rear of the Saxettal valley lies Alp Nessleren, the summer grazing pasture of the region’s cattle. This funnel-type high valley is also an expansive catchment area for the spring water that provides Interlaken’s water supply. Alp Nessleren is reached after an hour-long ascent on foot from the Skipintli Restaurant in Saxeten. The winding descent takes toboggan riders past mostly frozen waterfalls and through mixed forests to the ‘Glühweinbar’ at Balmer’s Hexenhäuschen in Chalberboden, an opportunity to enjoy refreshments and warm up again. From here, you can either undertake the ascent again on foot or continue your ride through the snow-covered winter landscape to the end point of the run at the Pintli Restaurant in Saxeten.
