The route starts in Gstaad and leads over small roads via Schönried and Saanenmöser to Zweisimmen. Here follows a 4 kilometer long ascent to the Eggi and a subsequent descent back to the bottom of the valley. After a short breather, another climb up to the legendary Jaunpass follows - accompanied by a beautiful panorama of the Bernese Alps and the Gastlosen. During the long descent towards Jaun, it is important to recover before tackling the last ascent from Abländschen to Mittelberg. Via Grischbachtal and Saanen you return to Gstaad.

The route is part of the program of the Swiss Vintage Cycling Festival "Bergkönig". More information: https://www.bergkoenig.cc/index.html
