From the Emmental to the Lake Thun region

Hike from Chuderhüsi, via Würzbrunnen, Röthenbach i.E., Vorder Naters to Süderen

From Chuderhüsi, you first enjoy the magnificent view over the Bernese Alps and then hike leisurely down towards Würzbrunnen, past fragrant meadows and through shady forests.

Route description

Enjoy the beautiful views of the Emmental and the Bernese Alps on this panoramic tour. Magnificent views of the Stockhorn range, the Schrattenfluh and the Hogant make this tour a panoramic show. At the start, the short detour to the Chuderhüsi tower is worthwhile to get an initial overview of the landscape. The trail leads down to Röthenbach via Würzbrunnen with its pilgrimage church. Now it's off through the forest to Nägelisboden and on across meadows and along the Rouchgrat forest to the Naters triangulation point.
