Zweisimmen winter circular trail

Stages of the circular trail: Zweisimmen–Stalde–Forellensee–Zweisimmen

A beautiful winter scene awaits you on the leisurely circular route along the Simme river. The trail has lighting in the evenings, making it ideal for a romantic winter walk.

The winter circular trail along the Simme river begins at Zweisimmen railway station. Take a leisurely hike along the Seefeld trail along the Simme to Vermeille camping ground. Here you have the option to turn left and take a detour on the shore path to Forellensee lake or shorten the hike by changing to PostBus route Zweisimmen (PostBus stop Zweisimmen, Forellensee). 

The Forellensee Zweisimmen fishing park offers a lake restaurant serving fresh fish and other specialities, and exceptional options for overnight accommodation. It’s also worth a visit in winter. 

To get back to the starting point, cross the Simme river at Vermeille camping ground and walk back on the other side. 

The winter circular trail is also suitable for families and older people as there are no inclines. The trail is illuminated in the evenings making it ideal for a romantic winter walk.
