Between Simmental and Saanenland
The tour which connects Mt. Rinderberg above Zwiesimmen and Mt. Hornberg near Gstaad is a ridge hike that is a dream come true: it is fairly easy and the hiking trails are very well-kept. The entire hike takes place at about an altitude of 2000 meters. The views are of the impressive peaks, firns and glaciers, as well as flower-bedecked alpine meadows. Ascend by chairlift and take a chairlift again at the end.
On this truly panoramic ridge hike to the Horneggli, walkers take the cable car to ascend the Rinderberg; then comes a short climb over the Gandlouene ridge and the route continues to the Parwenge Alpine meadow. There are superb views of the Bernese Alps on the way to the Hornberg. A path in good condition leads to the left, past the Hornflue peak to the Horneggli chair lift station.
