Walk through the Hohtürli Pass
From Kiental to Lake Oeschinen
Following the adventurous postbus ride on Europe’s steepest route from Reichenbach to Griesalp, the mountain trail leads to the highest point of the pass and the Blüemlisalp Hut at 2,778 m above sea level. From there, you can enjoy the magnificent view of the glaciers on the northern flank of Blüemlisalp. On the other side of the Hohtürli Pass, the trail leads back down to the deep blue Lake Oeschinen.
Travel comfortably by train to Reichenbach. The bus no. 220 will take you to Griesalp, where the hike can start.
