    Routes

    Time for some mountain air

    Past colourful meadows and crystal-clear mountain lakes – the most beautiful walking routes offer great variety and enjoyment. The tour planner provided by Lenk-Simmental Tourism helps you plan the perfect walk. For inspiration, here are our five top walks in the Metsch an der Lenk Region.

    Metschstand circular trail

    The circular trail starting and ending at the mountain station offers spectacular panoramic views in all directions, as well as the opportunity to relax and enjoy the Caribbean atmosphere of the Brenggen reservoir along the way. Taking around 80 minutes to complete, this circular walk can be classed as easy – despite the elevation difference – and above all varied.

    Metschstand–Aeugi–Ammertenspitz–Simmen Falls

    An Alpine route for experienced, sure-footed, vertigo-free mountain walkers. The view of the Ammertenspitz and on down into Bütschital, with a vista ranging from the Wildhorn, Silleren and the Schwandfälspitz all the way down into the valley, is unique. The descent to the Simmen Falls leads you through the wild and romantic Ammertental.
    Duration: 5 hours 5 minutes.

    Metsch–Lauenen–Nessli–Simmen Falls

    There are superlative panoramic views along the walk from the Metsch middle station via Nesslin to the Simmen Falls. The spectacularly beautiful mountain trail continuously leads you into the valley and towards the “Plaine Morte”. It goes past the “Sibe Brunen”, the source of the River Simme. The seven springs emerging from the ground here are something truly special. A place in which to relax and be amazed. To finish, the trail leads you down to the Simmen Falls.
    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes.

     

    There are of course many other remarkable walks, which you can find out more about in the guidebook or the interactive summer map.
