The easy high-mountain hike is breath-taking, especially because of its wonderful alpine panorama. It is ideally suited for families and senior citizens.

Take the comfortable gondola ride up the Rinderberg (2,004 m) from Zweisimmen. The trail takes you towards Hornberg/Horneggli. The short ascent leads over the Gandlouene Ridge (2,079 m) and onwards to the Alp Parwenge (1,836 m). On the way to Hornberg (1,811 m) enjoy the wonderful views of the Bernese Alps panorama. The well prepared path is leading to the mountain station Horneggli (1770 m), from were you can reach the chairlift to Schönried. From the Horneggli you can also hike to the valley towards Saanenmöser or Schönried.
