best season

The perfect uphill trail for a short, intensive training run.

The trail starts not far from the village centre and leads towards Pfingstegg. The perfect trail for a lunchtime workout or a cool early morning run in high summer before the sun hits the trail. Pfingstegg station also has a toboggan track if you fancy a fast adrenalin rush and the restaurant has a play area for kids and a sun terrace. From here it’s a short cableway ride back to the village.

Getting there

There are different ways to reach the region by car. The fastest way from Basel and Geneva is via Berne. The fastest route from Zurich is through Lucerne and the Brünig Pass. The pass is open in summer and winter.

From the south, the route goes over the Grimsel or Susten Pass into the region. Both passes are only open in summer. Alternatively, you can take the Simplon Pass and then Lötschberg car transport.
