Hiking & nature

Walk to the Alpine Garden, Tschentenalp and the Schwandfeldspitz

A hike with plenty of sights and a visit to the Alpine garden. With a bit of luck, you might be able to see marmots in their natural habitat.

Enjoy the spectacular flowers in the Alpine garden, which is a half-hour walk from Adelboden via Höreliweg. If you head towards Mösere and keep walking for another hour, you will reach Tschentenalp. After the forested section, keep a sharp look out – you might well get the chance to spot marmots! Then, once you’ve enjoyed a break at the Tschentenalp mountain restaurant, it’s just a 20-minute walk to the Schwandfeldspitz. While the last few metres may feel like a struggle, the climb is worth it for the spectacular view.
