Culinary Winter Hiking

Culinary delights in Sörenberg

Enjoy a leisurely winter hiking tour including a culinary 3-course treat in Sörenberg. On the Rossweid-Salwideli-Rischli-Sörenberg route, four local gastronomy partners will spoil you with one local dish each.

The gastronomic loop hiking tour is an easy winter hike, takes about 2.5 hours over a distance of 9 km and leads through fantastic winter moorland sceneries with a view of the snow-covered karst fields of the Schrattenfluh, and includes a 3-course menu. 

The loop tour begins with a cable car ride up to Rossweid. In the Rossweid restaurant you start with a glass of sparkling wine and then make your way to the mountain inn Salwideli for the starter course. The main course will be served at the Wellnesshotel Rischli. The crowning conclusion of the excursion is a dessert in the restaurant Bäckerstube.

We recommend that you start the hike between 10.00 h and 10.30 h; dessert is served until 17.00 h at the latest. Reservations are not required.
