Hidden away between the Hornfluh and the Giferhorn, the enchanting Turbach valley is part of the Saanenland. As of the isolated location, its inhabitants developed certain peculiarities. Taking into account several place names such as Turbach "the impetuous", you can suppose that the valley was already known to the Celts. 14 information boards along this trail give an insight into the particularities of the valley. They explain the origins of the places names, the local history and the geological characteristics.
