Philosopher’s Trail Frienisberg

From Wahlendorf to Frieswil

Take a day trip to the beautiful Frienisberg region. The Philosopher’s Trail takes you from Wahlendorf to Frieswil and offers fantastic panoramic views.

Above Frieswil you will find many places with fantastic panoramic views all the way from the Bernese Alps to the mountains of Fribourg and the Savoy Alps. Even Lake Murten and Lake Neuenburg are visible, with the Jura mountains to the right. With such far-reaching views, the Philosopher’s Trail leaves much space and time to linger and for all sorts of interesting talks.

On a hot summer day you may prefer to walk through the cool forest and when it’s colder, you can choose a path outside the forest. The Juchhubel grilling station is well equipped and another great place to spend some time.
