Lenk i. S. Blick auf Betelberg

The imposing Iffigfall (Iffig Falls), the magnificent Simmenfälle (Simmen Falls) and the Quellen der Simme (Springs of Simme). Add to that the superb view from the Langermatte. From highlight to highlight, this hike to the origin of the River Simme is really a thrilling experience. From Langermatte, where the legendary Battle of Wyber took place, the 30 minute ascent to Oberlaubhorn is really worth the effort.

Description

Start hiking in the direction of Lake Lenker (Lenkersee). The hike continues along the roaring waters of Iffigbach across Pöschenried/Färiche to Iffig Falls. Hike up to Langermatte, then steeply downwards to Rezliberg (1405m) and Sibe Brünne (1102m, Seven Springs). This is where the Simme originates and then spectacularly falls down into the valley. This thrilling hike ends in Lenk, a short distance below in the valley.
