    Hiking trail

    Bergwanderung am Oeschinensee über den Heuberg

    Die anspruchsvolle Wanderung beginnt bei der Bergstation Oeschinen und führt zunächst einer steilen Bergflanke entlang in Richtung Oberbärgli. Der Weg ist schmal und wird von zahlreichen kleinen Bächen gesäumt. Man sollte auf jeden Fall schwindelfrei und trittsicher sein. Gutes Schuhwerk ist unerlässlich. Unterwegs bieten sich Ihnen atemberaubende Ausblicke auf die faszinierende Bergwelt der Schweizer Alpen.

    Der Abstieg vom Oberbärgli nach Unterbärgli ist eine echte Herausforderung! Ein steiler, in den Berg gehauener Pfad führt hinunter zum See. Der Rückweg zur Bergstation Oeschinen ist dann wieder sehr gemütlich.
