An enjoyable hike along cool streams and the sunny southern slopes of Gstaad begins in the village of Gstaad.
The leisurely hike goes from Gstaad village along the Louwibach and Turbach streams into the scenic landscape of Turbach Valley. From there the trail leads to Bissen, which offers a wonderful view onto Gstaad. The turning point of the hike goes over Scheidbach near the small village of Turbach. Then it’s back towards Gstaad – this time along the sunny southern slopes on a flat trail higher up. From here there is a great view onto the Gstaad mountains – the Rüblihorn, Gummfluh and Stalden. A hiking trail then leads through Overbort, with its magnificent and noble chalets, back to the center of Gstaad.
