Wageti-Rundweg

Wageti-Rundweg

This popular path along the Kander offers a view of the imposing peaks around Kandersteg. It takes you past the international scout centre, elaborately decorated farmhouses and the idyllic Muggenseeli lake.
A wonderful view of the Blüemlisalp – subject of many songs and Kandersteg’s closest mountain – awaits you right where the path begins, at the station. Along the Kander, you can let the sound of the water soothe your mind and enjoy the calmness and nature that surround you. You’ll want to take your time to fully enjoy the beguiling views and new vistas that open up along the route. The river course and its adjoining reed beds offer great variety, along with the international scout centre grounds, which the path passes through. It is a meeting place for young people from all over the world, particularly in summer.

The tarmac pavement will take you back from there in the direction of the village. Along the way, you’ll discover truly picturesque buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries, and sometimes even earlier: proud farmhouses with their ornately painted house fronts, hinting at the fascinating history of the high alpine mountain village. Those who would like a rest at this point can make use of a Cerebral Foundation bench by the idyllic Muggenseeli lake.

The centre of Kandersteg has plenty of shops and restaurants in which to while away your time and bring your trip to a pleasurable close.
