Useful Information

Pumptrack

A pump track is a specially created track consisting of waves and banked curves. Without pedaling, the cyclist uses a pumping motion of the body in order to gain and maintain speed. Although the facility is suitable for experienced bikers, children and anyone else wanting to try out something different are sure to have an enjoyable time too.

Pump track Zweisimmen

The pumptrack Zweisimmen is located on the premises of the public school in Zweisimmen, behind the train station.

Share the trail - respect each other!

Trail rules - Love your trails!
Trail rules - Love your trails!

In the Gstaad region, hikers, mountain bikers and other outdoor enthusiasts largely share the same trails. It is therefore important that people are tolerant and considerate towards others. Mountain bikers should slow down to walking pace when overtaking other people and must give way to hikers when their paths cross on narrow trails. Hikers must accept mountain bikers as equal trail users and should make way for them where this is possible and sensible.

Trail rules - Love your trails!

  • Use trails at your own risk. Adjust your riding to suit the terrain and your skill level.
  • Do not break if the wheels are locked!
  • Stay on roads and trails. To cut across country is strictly prohibited.
  • Show consideration when encountering and overtaking hikers and other trail users. Due consideration must also be given to animals and plants.
  • Animals on the trail have the right of way. Animals should only be approached slowly.
  • Gates and pasture fences must always be closed after riding through them.
  • Waste must be disposed of properly.
  • It is important to plan a bike ride well and to take suitable equipment with you.
  • Save the emergency ambulance number 144 and the emergency police number 117 to your mobile phone.

No liability can be accepted for any accidents.
