The alpine hike from Schynigen Platte (plateau) across Faulhorn up to First is a classic among the Bernese alpine hikes. A magnificent scenic backdrop of alpine peaks is your constant companion throughout the tour. The all-round panorama from Faulhorn is simply indescribably beautiful. Turquoise-blue Brienz Lake lies far below and the silhouette of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau loom on the horizon on the other side.
The descent from the Faulhorn via Bussalp to Grindelwald offers unforgettable thrills for anyone who enjoys a toboggan ride. Among aficionados, «Big Pintenfritz» ranks as one of the greatest of all runs.
