Die liebliche Aare-Landschaft zwischen Solothurn und Biel wird heute intensiv von der Landwirtschaft und vom Verkehr genutzt. Dennoch: Ein Spaziergang auf dem Aareuferweg lohnt sich immer, sei es wegen der Storchensiedlung in Altreu, den knapp über das Wasser pfeilenden Eisvögeln oder der Rückfahrt mit dem Aareschiff.

Belalp-Riederalp suspended bridge

Hiking to suspension bridges – The connection between Belalp and Riederalp. For many decades, the Belalp – Riederalp trail passed only over the Aletsch glacier. Even small livestock was taken across to the other side of the glacier in this way. Metal ladders were later required on account of the shrinkage of the glacier, and today a suspended bridge crosses the ice-free gorge. Walking time 4.5h.

Switzerland's hiking trail network is considered one of the densest, most varied and over all, best posted one in the world. More than 65,000 km of mountain and hiking trails are marked: lined up, all of these trails would circle the globe about 1.5 times! Please remember that the weather can change very rapidly in the mountains. Even though the sky may be clear when you set out, you should still take along warm clothes or a fold up jacket for inclement weather. Always tell someone at your hotel where you are hiking.
