PostBus route 323 takes you directly to Berghaus Gurnigel, the starting point for the snowshoe hike. The Selibühl panoramic trail leads west from the lodge along the edge of the forest. Along the way, a detour will take you to the Selibühlhaus and on to the viewpoint in Selibühl, where you will be rewarded with a 360-degree panoramic view from the summit and plenty of nature.

The loop trail is also well suited to inexperienced hikers, and no previous knowledge is required. The route is well marked, and a guide is not required. Please use only the official hiking trails in order to protect the forests.
