Arrival & parking

Aeschi is centrally located and well connected to public transport with buses running twice an hour.
Aeschi can be reached by car from three different directions.

Public transport

You can reach Aeschi by post bus with lines 61 and 62 every half hour from Spiez. Line 62 runs every hour to Aeschiried. The last bus to Aeschiried leaves around 7:30 p.m.

From July to October at the weekends and on public holidays there is a post bus operating to Suldtal. This bus is financed by a sponsorship and is not an official Postbus route. For this reason, a special tariff applies. Regular season tickets (GA, Half-Fare Card, etc.) are not valid. With the PanoramaCard (guest card) you travel for free on this line.
