Breath-taking views and lightning-fast rides

On Marbachegg, the mountain views are simply breath-taking. The sun terrace at Berggasthaus Marbachegg is a perfect place to relax. Marbachegg is also a great starting point for a variety of both leisurely and spectacular walks. Have the mountain inn pack you a picnic basket to enjoy at your favourite spot along the way.

But you’ll find plenty of opportunities for adventure on Marbachegg too: with the three- or four-wheeled Marbachegg carts, you can drive yourself across the alpine meadows on a wooden track. Fans of cycling will find a true paradise in the facilities around Marbachegg. The Marbachegg Clientis Flowtrail takes you along a varied 4 km route to Marbach.

Travel comfortably by train to Escholzmatt. From there the post bus takes you to the “Marbachegg, Talstation” stop.
