Mountain hike over Mount Heuberg by Lake Oeschinen
This challenging walk begins by Oeschinen mountain station and initially takes you along a steep mountain slope towards Oberbärgli. The path is narrow and hemmed in by several brooks. It is vital to be sure-footed and free from vertigo. Good shoes are crucial. Along the way, there are breathtaking views of the fascinating mountainscape of the Swiss Alps to be enjoyed.
The descent from Oberbärgli to Unterbärgli is a real challenge! A steep path hewn into the mountainside leads down to the lake. The path back to the Oeschinen mountain station is then very comfortable by comparison.
