A hiking trail with views of magnificent lakes.
The hike leads from Käserstatt to the Gibel. On the summit of the Gibel and the somewhat lower-lying rock pulpit, the hike is rewarded with an enjoyable view. From here you can see Lake Brienz and Lake Lungern. The trail then descends via Balisalp to Lischen, the intermediate station of Käserstatt. On this stretch, too, there are always beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. The hike can be extended to 4 hours. This leads from the Gibel in the direction of Lungern or Brünig.

Thanks to its central location in Europe, Switzerland is served by international trains from over 12 countries. Within Switzerland, Intercity trains run from Basel and Lucerne directly to the Jungfrau Region. Travellers from Zurich change trains in Bern. Trains run every half hour.
There are various ways to get here by car. From Geneva, the fastest route is via Bern. From Zurich or Basel, the quickest route is towards Lucerne and the Brünig Pass. The pass is open in summer and winter.
From the south, the Grimsel or Susten Passes lead to the region. Both passes are only open in summer. Alternatively, you can take the Simplon Pass and then the Lötschberg car transport.
There is a public car park in Twing. There are also some uncovered parking spaces directly at the valley station in Twing.
