Panorama circular trail at Lake Thun

Panorama circular trail around Lake Thun

Within the next few years, a panorama circular trail will be established around Lake Thun with six suspension bridges. Two of the bridges are finished: the suspension bridge over the Spissibach at Leissigen and the Sigriswil panorama bridge.

Availability Today (Sunday) open

The suspension bridges can be accessed all year round.


Leissigen suspension bridge

Free access.

Sigriswil panorama bridge

To cross the Sigriswil panorama bridge there is a bridge toll of CHF 8.00 (day ticket) for adults. PanoramaCard Thunersee (guest cards) card holders can get a reduced day ticket for CHF 4.00. You can also purchase an annual subscription for CHF 28.00.

With the income this generates, the association of the panorama circular trail at Lake Thun will pay back the construction loan and finance maintenance work.

For children under 16 and residents of the municipality of Sigriswil, it is free to cross the suspension bridge. Members of the association of the circular trail at Lake Thun can also cross the bridge for free (minimum contribution of CHF 20.00).

Prices in CHF per person. Prices and products subject to alteration.


Sigriswil panorama bridge

The Sigriswil panorama bridge is both the longest (340 metres) and tallest (180 metres) of the bridges. It connects the villages of Sigriswil and Aeschlen and spares its users the descent into the gorge and the ascent on the other side. The former route through the Gummi gorge (Guntenbachschlucht) remains open. The historic route will now become a themed trail (nature, forest, Nagelfluh, gorge, water). You can learn about sights to see in the region at the recently opened information point at the Sigriswil panorama bridge.

Suspension bridge over Spissibach

The suspension bridge over Spissibach at Leissigen is almost 60 metres high above Spissibach and 142 metres long. Crossing the bridge on a hike from Leissigen or Krattigen via Meielisalp is an experience for both old and young. The bridge is accessible in both summer and winter (snow shoes are available at Hotel Meielisalp).

At Meielisalp you can enjoy stunning views of Lake Thun, a great atmosphere and excellent hospitality. There is also a mini golf course and a children’s play area at the restaurant.

    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.
