The Hundsrügg offers with its fantastic panoramic view of 427 peaks (Eiger - Matterhorn - Mont Blanc included) a real experience.

The hike starts at the Sparenmoos parking lot. Over the slightly ascending Nüjeberg plain, the hiking trail leads to the Schiltenegg Alp. From here the terrain becomes somewhat steeper. Via the wide SE ridge you reach the summit of the Hundsrügg (2047 M.a.s.l.).

In order to continue enjoying the view of the Alps and the imposing Gastlosen chain, we recommend for the descent the path towards Erbetlaub-Seeli. Via Luegle - Erbetlaub and Schiltenegg you get back to the parking lot Sparenmoos. On the way back shortly after Schiltenegg it is worth making a detour to the mountain restaurant Nüjeberg, which offers delicious and fine delicacies from the alp.

From Sparenmoos you can either hike down the last 4 km to Zweisimmen, take the hiking taxi, or rent a scooter at Site Alp and enjoy an exciting ride back to the Zweisimmen train station.
