Panoramic winter hike from Hornberg down to Schönried.

From Saanenmöser take the gondola to the middle station and then the chairlift to the Hornberg. The winter hiking trail leads past the two mountain restaurants Hornberg and Hornflueh towards Gfell. On the Gfell you have a great 360° view of almost the entire destination. The trail continues via Berschell to Haldis Bärgli. From Haldis Bärgli, the winter hiking trail is combined with the toboggan run Horneggli Run Süd. The route continues down to Wittere, where the toboggan run is again separated from the winter hiking trail, which leads via Schlittmoos past the fondue pot back to Schönried. The winter hiking trail ends in Schönried but you can also take the Wittere hiking trail or the Promenade hiking trail back to Saanenmöser.

ATTENTION: Please note the latest winter hiking trail reports!
