On this truly panoramic ridge hike to the Horneggli, walkers take the cable car to ascend the Rinderberg; then comes a short climb over the Gandlouene ridge and the route continues to the Parwenge Alpine meadow. There are superb views of the Bernese Alps on the way to the Hornberg. A path in good condition leads to the left, past the Hornflue peak to the Horneggli chair lift station.
