A parallel universe awaits. On this Adelboden Trail in the deep green forest and beneath the thundering waters at Unter dem Birg, you’ll feel like you're in another world.

It's like being in an alpine fantasy world. On this trail, runners follow moss-covered forest paths and take gently sweeping curves in their stride. Against the flow of the babbling mountain stream, this loop leads to the thundering Engstlige waterfall – and the 600 m / 1969 ft. high natural spectacle alone is worth the journey. Add to this a rustic, covered wooden bridge and the wild mountain landscape, and you have a true Adelboden classic among tours.

Fancy cooling off? On this tour, a Kneipp station gives you the opportunity to dip your feet in the cold water.

Destination

Adelboden, Oey

Turn-by-turn directions

 

Always upstream. Beginning in Adelboden Oey, this trail follows the River Engstlige past rustic wooden chalets and farms. Halfway along the route, a stop at the Engstlige Waterfall is an absolute must. There is a bench close by which offers breathtaking views of this natural spectacle. With the force of nature spurring you on, continue along the trail. A well-maintained hiking trail leads you out of the forest again.
