Hi everyone

Weather forecasts for this Saturday look good and most of the snow that fell last week will have melted by then. I suggest we do a rather short and easy (but still very beautiful) hike between Gurnigel and Stockhorn summit in the Gantrisch mountains.

Total walking time is 4h30mn with 900m height difference (most of the climbing is located at the beginning and at the end). Difficulty is T2, it's a well marked path with no technical problems or exposed sections. Please note that there might still be snow fields here and there, particularly at the end which is all on the northern side of Stockhorn.

More information available here :

Meeting point is Bern main station, platform 7 at 08:00 We take the 08:12 train to Thurnen, there we take the bus to Gurnigel, Wasserscheide where we will arrive at 09:13. You will need a one way ticket Bern - Gurnigel, Wasserscheide.

Once at Stockhorn we'll have plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful 360 view, the new attraction "Eyes of the Stockhorn" (very cool but not for those afraid of heights :-)) and a good drink ! From Stockhorn we will go down to Erlenbach im Simmental with gondolas. There are regular trains to Spiez and Bern from Erlenbach im Simmental.

Please take good walking shoes and a picnic.

See you
