Site temporarily closed!

The storm on 4 July 2022 completely flooded the Hotel Landgasthof Kemmeriboden-Bad. For this reason, the hotel and restaurant operations have been put on hold until further notice. The entire Kemmeriboden-Bad team is currently working flat out to make a comeback. For this reason, our “Sörenberg-Kemmeriboden” special ticket is not on sale, as there are currently no “meringues”, which are included in the ticket, available in the Landgasthof.

The hiking trail from Sörenberg via Rossweid to Kemmeriboden-Bad is open again, however there are some diversions, which are signposted along the way. You can find up-to-date information here: www.soerenberg.ch/de/bergbahnen/panoramawanderkarte/ 
Please purchase individual tickets from the relevant transport companies.

PostBus lines 241 and 251 are running as timetabled. You can consult the departure times on the online timetable at www.sbb.ch.

The easy hike is also very suitable for families and starts on the Rossweid, which you can reach conveniently by cable car from Sörenberg. From Sörenberg, the cable car takes you up to the Rossweid. Before starting your hike, why not spend a while at the Rossweid event restaurant, ideal for young and old alike. After this short break, you can start the impressive hike from the Rossweid via Salwideli across the moorlands of national importance. Follow the marked route towards Salwideli/Kemmeribodenbad. With the gnarled mountain pines and beautiful orchids, you’ll be immediately transported into another world. Up to the Schneeberg, you’ll have a view of the impressive step flanks of the Brienzergrat and the karst rock formations of the Schrattenfluh, before you head into the forest and hike down towards Kemmeriboden-Bad. To top it all off, you can enjoy the famous Kemmeriboden meringue at the Kemmeriboden-Bad Hotel.
