How to get there
Take the train to Frutigen. From the railway station, the AFA bus number 230 towards Adelboden will take you to the “Widi” stop. Or you can walk directly to Künzistegstrasse, where the well-signposted shoreline trail alongside the River Engstligen begins.
For the return journey, take the AFA bus directly by the suspension bridge (“Hohstalden” stop), which will carry you to Frutigen Railway Station in 8 minutes.
