Niederhorn-Panoramaweg

Impressive panoramic hike facing the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau peaks. It leads over the Güggisgrat ridge with spectacular views of the Justistal valley deep below and continues on the partly exposed path up to the Gemmenalphorn. Then over hill and dale downhill towards Chüematte, and in the last section over alpine pastures to Waldegg.
The ride up to the start of the hike, from Niederhorn, is itself an experience: the Lake of Thun below sparkles and the snow-covered four-thousand-metre peaks to the south seem almost within reach. The first part of the hike follows the Güggisgrat. Against the backdrop of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau you cross heather and moorland landscape with alpine roses and bilberries. If you have binoculars, take them with you! Ibexes, chamoises and marmots are often seen here.

First you climb the Burgfeldstand at 2063 m.a.s.l., the highest elevation on the Güggisgrat. The next section is partly exposed and secured with ropes - a head for heights is an advantage here. After an alternating up and down, you reach the Gemmenalphorn which is only two metres lower. Here, the magnificent all-round view invites you to take a break.

Later, the trail leads downhill over some imposing limestone rock to the Chüematte. The final section to Waldegg crosses a cultural landscape with flowering alpine meadows and gnarled sycamore trees.
