Hiking ticket Gurnigel–Stockhorn

The Alpine path classic from the Gantrisch region to the Stockhorn peak with fantastic views.

The impressive Gantrisch chain rears its head between the Gurnigel region and Simmental. It also includes the striking rocky peak of the Stockhorn. The Alpine path classic Gurnigel-Stockhorn runs along this chain. The views of the Bernese Alpine world, the Lake Thun and Simmental are unique and breathtaking. Your reward is the magnificent panorama from the 2190 m high Stockhorn.

Benefit from an attractive special ticket, which includes the Postbus ride and the descent with the Stockhorn cable car at a special price.

Daily programme


Travel from your departure station with the BLS to "Thurnen". Here you change to the Postbus line 323 and travel to "Gurnigel Wasserscheide", which is the the starting point of your hike. Due to time constraints, we recommend the Postbus 08:35 from Thurnen.

The following services are included in the hiking ticket:

  • Postbus: outward journey Thurnen railway station-Gurnigel Wasserscheide (Line 323)
  • Stockhornbahn: descent Stockhorn-Erlenbach


We recommend that you plan your journey so that you can connect with the post bus at 8.35 am from Thurnen. This guarantees that you have enough time for the hike incl. rest periods and not to miss the last descent with the Stockhorn cable car at 5.35 pm.


The path initially runs along an asphalted and then gravel Alpine road to Alp Obernünene. After this, the ascent to the Leiterepass to 1904 m begins. Once you have arrived at the pass, you will be rewarded with a fantastic view. Only now does the actual Alpine path to the gigantic Gantrisch chain begin. After passing Chuelouenen and Stierehütte, you will reach Oberi Walalp. You can buy a fine piece of Bernese Alpine cheese AOP at the organic Demeter alp, which is dotted with dairy cattle, cows, Alpine pigs and chickens.

The route now runs from Oberi Walalp to the final steep ascent along the north face passage on the Grat and finally to Stockhorn. Here you will be greeted by a glorious panorama just waiting to be enjoyed.
