Demanding Hikes

Morgenberghorn

The Morgenberghorn is THE vantage point over Lake Thun. This demanding hike requires good physical condition and sure-footedness and is suitable for experienced hikers only. On this approximately 6-hour hike, you hike from Aeschiried to the Allmispitz and then follow the ridge to Alp Brunni. A steep path takes you up to the crux of the hike – it has some safety chains in place to hold on to. The view from the Morgenberghorn is magnificent. The descent is via the same path or via the white-blue-white alpine mountain hiking trail to the Renggli Pass. From here you go via the Pochtenfall waterfall, back into the Suldtal and along the babbling Suld river to Aeschiried.

Note: From the Pochtenfall restaurant you can take the post bus back to Aeschiried at the weekend. It takes about an hour to walk back to the starting point.

Latrejenfeld - Kiental

From Aeschiried you first hike into the Suldtal valley, past the Pochtenfall and up to the Schlieri. The basin opens up and you get an impressive view of the Schwalmere. Now it goes right up to the Mittelberg and the Latrejenfeld. The world seems to have stood still up here. The newly built alpine hut is the only reminder that civilization exists. The hiking trail leading to Kiental initially only looks like a grassy scar. From Eggmittelberg, the well-marked hiking trail is quite steep, and downhill via small stair sections to the Kiental. From here you can take the PostBus to Reichenbach and then the train to Spiez.
