Hike along the Wispile mountain ridge and enjoy the great view over the Saanenland with sight to our high peaks.

With the cable car it provides an easy access to Berghaus Wispile where the walk starts. Always follow the ridge and enjoy the panoramic views over the Swiss mountains. By Chrinetritt the road drops steeply. Follow the way right down to the Satteleggli. At the fork (Pkt. 1703) you walk to the left. Now the path leads along the edge of the forest towards the valley floor, where it goes into the side street Saali-Rohr. Via Rohr you reach the village of Gsteig, where the bus stop is.

Enjoy a Fondue in the inordinately large fondue pot with a beautiful view on the surrounding mountains.
