Hiking & nature

Winter and snow shoe hiking in the Stockhorn area

Enjoy the peace and quiet away from the pistes

You can get away from the daily grind and enjoy the breathtaking peace and tranquillity of the wintry landscape when you hike through the beautiful Stockhorn area – with or without snow shoes. The romantic trails lead around iced-over Lake Hinterstocken or to the idyllic "Oberbärgli" mountain huts on the Lasenberg. It's an unforgettable nature experience that will make your hectic daily routine a distant memory.

The snowshoeing trails and itineraries all start at the intermediate station of Chrindi, easily accessible by cable car from Erlenbach i.S. However you should in any case make a detour through the top station of the Stockhorn, from where you can enjoy an incomparable view of Lake Thun and the Bernese Oberland. The panoramic restaurant at the top also offers Sunday brunches and full moon meals all year round.
