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.

    Sie erschliesst die Maiensässe Leiternweide, die bisher nur über einen riesigen Umweg erreichbar waren. Die Begehung der Hängebrücken lässt sich gut mit dem Besuch des Weissenburgbads verbinden. Die Weissenburger Thermalquelle genoss im 19. Jahrhundert Weltruhm.
