The Fürstein mountain hike leads through the fantastic landscapes of the UNESCO Biosphere Entlebuch and Obwalden. It starts and ends on the Glaubenberg pass. During the summer months, the journey can be made by postbus. From 13 June to 1 November, the postbus will operate four times on weekends and public holidays and twice from Entlebuch over the Glaubenberg pass to Langis from Monday to Friday. Those arriving from Sarnen can change buses in Langis and thus also reach the Glaubenberg.
Every step forward is worth the effort on the ascent of the 2040-metre-high Fürstein. It is counted among the best known panoramic mountains as the highest peak between Waldemme and Lake Sarnen. On reaching the summit you’re rewarded with sweeping views extending from the Pilatus, direction northeast, to the Bernese Alps, direction southwest.
Breathtakingly beautiful! By the parking lot on the Glaubenberg pass (PostBus stop Glaubenberg Passhöhe), you set off on a tarmac and gravel path directly behind the restaurant. After five minutes walk, the path (arrow to the sign) branches off left into the forest. Now the ascent through the forest and over the ridge towards Rickhubel and the Fürstein follows. The descent leads to Sewenseeli (with an inviting bench to sit, rest and ponder in front of the chapel), then over alpine meadows and back to your starting point.
