Restaurant Gurnigel Berghaus

At this mountain restaurant with its spacious terrace, you just have to stop and enjoy the panoramic view of the mountains and Lake Thun. Cyclists and motor-cyclists, hikers, climbers and touring motorists all enjoy the many culinary delights here. Have a party, organise a music camp, hold a fondue party in a tepee, go for a ride or a snowshoe walk – these are just a few of the things the Gurnigel mountain restaurant has to offer.

Via ferrata Gantrisch

Challenging in places, with vertical and slightly overhanging sections (categorised as a KS 4 climb). You do need to be quite fit, and certainly sure-footed with a good head for heights. Approach via the Gurnigel water divide, the start is just below the Leitern Pass. Six hours (there and back) from the water divide. You can hire a via ferrata set from the Gurnigel mountain inn.

Romantic little Gantrisch lake

Little mountain lake at 1578 m. Until just a few years ago, the Gantrischseeli was almost entirely silted up, but now thanks to some very committed volunteers it is once again a rewarding place to come to for a short mountain walk. Start from the Untere Gantrischhütte at 1510 m. The path takes you past cows and goats into the nature conservation area around the lake. Don't forget your binoculars for spying out chamois!
