It's the banks of the River Kander, the beautiful pastures and farmhouses, and the detour to the Kienseeli lake that make this short trail in Reichenbach so attractive.

First, you head upstream and then go with the flow. This Reichenbach trail is mainly across the valley floor, revealing the beauty of the River Kander and the alpine mountain landscape on both sides. On the way back, the picturesque Kienseeli lake proves that still water also has an appeal. Centuries-old buildings stand guard for the final sprint as the last section of the route joins the Reichenbach Häuserweg (Houses Trail ).

Safety information

The more extreme the conditions, the more important your equipment. Longer mountain tours, for example, require weatherproof clothing and a small running backpack with food.

Destination

Reichenbach Railway Station

Turn-by-turn directions

Against the flow, but with plenty of vigour: Starting directly at Reichenbach Railway Station, this route follows the River Kander upstream. Trail runners cross over to the other bank at the "Waggelibrücke" bridge and turn left towards Reichenbach. The water is still at the idyllic Kienseeli lake, but the runners keep moving. The trail now leads to Kien, where the scenery becomes more and more historic. Following small roads, the trail then joins Reichenbach's magnificent "Häuserweg" back to the starting point.
