Gantrisch-Gurnigel Route

From Thurnen via Gurnigel Pass to Schwarzenburg

Take a day trip to the beautiful Gantrisch Region. The postbus takes you from Thurnen or Schwarzenburg to the Gantrisch Nature Park and across Gurnigel Pass. This recreational area has a lot to offer from fantastic views to amazing hikes.

The Gurnigel Route starts out in Thurnen and climbs up to Längenberg. Riggisberg is the starting point for a wide variety of excursions into the Gantrisch Nature Park and the Schwarzenburgerland region.

The high trail along Längenberg to Niedermuhlern and the stunning views are especially memorable. Riggisberg Castle and Abegg Foundation, where woven fabrics from different eras are on exhibit, make the village a cultural highlight. The Gantrisch Nature Park offers many different options to choose from, the forest arena or lovely little Gantrisch Lake, for example. The Gäggersteg walkway provides a very interesting perspective of how the forest is recovering from Lothar, known as the storm of the century.

The postbus takes you through the Gantrisch area up to Gurnigel Pass. The spectacular Gantrisch Panorama Trail connects Gurnigel with Zollhaus. Now, enjoy a postbus ride down into the valley to Plaffeien and Schwarzenburg. Visit the local history museum in Schwarzenburg for more facts and figures about the region.
