The leisurely tour starts in Gstaad and runs first along the Louwibach and later along the Turbachbach to the village center of Turbach. Here, a visit to the small terrace of the Sunne-Stübli restaurant is a must - after all, a little refreshment on the bike tour is not to be missed. The next section leads past typical chalets and green pastures to Alp Wintermatte, the gateway from Turbach, into the Heubergtal valley. Here, too, it is wonderful to linger and in the cozy Wintermatte-Beizli (open from June until about the end of September), refreshments are provided.

The return journey starts on the same route. Shortly after Turbach you cross the stream and change the side of the valley. On the return to Gstaad via Bissen, a short break is recommended to take in the magnificent view.
