This hike affords beautiful views into the Simmental, western Bernese Oberland and the Vaud Alps. Equally as pleasing are the delightful meadows and quiet, clear pine forests on this peaceful plateau.

Zweisimmen is the gateway to the world-renowned Gstaad-Saanenland region. Sparenmoos is located above this cosy village on a mountain terrace with several elongated hills. This panoramic winter hiking trail on high moorland countryside starts to the west of the Berghotel Sparenmoos.

An easy ascent takes you towards Hüsliberg. This section affords spectacular views of the Simmental and the Vaud Alps. If you stop for a break at the Hüsliberg Alpine hut and take a good look you can even see the skiers on the Rinderberg zooming down the slopes. After this it is uphill now: facing the mighty Hundsrügg, you proceed upwards to the turning point at the Schiltenegg. Near Nüjeberg/Uf em Hubel, you turn to the east - and now encounter meadows, high moorland terrain and majestic fir trees in their winter dress. After a steep descent and a walk along the edge of the forest and along an Alpine road, you find yourself back at the starting point.
