Next to the panorama restaurant at the summit, there is a 70-m-long tunnel leading through solid rock into a "grotto" in the north wall. From the two look-out windows There – the so-called "Stockhorn Augen" or Stockhorn Eyes – you can see down to Thun and Lake Thun and into the Mittelland beyond.
The imposing Gantrisch mountain chain stretches eastwards from the Gurnigel region, ending with the mighty rocky dome of the Stockhorn. Right along this chain runs a mountain path offering magnificent views across the Bernese Alps and Lake Thun and down into the Simmental valley.
There are regions, where everything is just perfect: the landscape, the villages, the individual houses, the gardens. This is what you will enjoy when you go on the hiking trip from Oberwil to Erlenbach in Simmental valley. The hiking trail leads past magnificent farmhouses that are artistic masterpieces of carpentry.
It’s not hard to pinpoint the distinctive head of rock at the entrance to the Bernese Oberland – but the fact that you can stand pretty much on top to enjoy views direction Thun, Aare Valley and Bern as far as Jura is known to few.
