Gantrisch Lake Loop Trail

A peaceful spot to linger and relax

Take a day trip to discover the beautiful Gantrisch-Gurnigel region. The lovely little mountain lake below the Gantrisch and Birehubel mountains is a pleasant spot to linger and relax.  

Nestled between the Gurnigel and Birehubel mountains is the lovely little Gantrisch Lake. The entire area around Gantrisch and Gurnigel with the small mountain lake is a popular excursion and hiking destination. Surrounded by wonderful alpine meadows and an amazing variety of flowers Gantrisch Lake is an enjoyable place to spend time. 

All around the lake, there are some terrific spots for grilling, for a picnic or simply to rest your feet. You could also stop for something to eat at the Upper Gantrisch Hut on the lake, at Bire Hut or at Gantrisch Hut on the Gurnigel mountain road.

A comfortable road will take you quickly to the lake. The trail is ideal for a family hike. The PostBus stop is located near the Gantrisch Hut.
