An easy, leisurely circular hike, accompanied throughout by fabulous views of the mountains.
From the mountain station of Bettmeralp cable car, set off through Bettmeralp village, past the Maria zum Schnee Chapel, as far as Hotel Alpfrieden. Here you follow the trail that leads to the valley station of the Bettmerhorn cable car, where the short ascent to Lake Bettmersee begins. The circular trail takes you first along the eastern edge of Lake Bettmersee, then up to the alpine stables and back to Lake Bettmersee. During the summer months, local farmers still keep their cows at the alpine stables. Take the same route back to the starting point of the hike, passing the valley station of the Bettmerhorn gondola lift and then heading west through Bettmeralp to the mountain station of the Bettmeralp cable car.
What amazing views of the mountains! Pause at the benches along the path and take all the time you like to soak up the superb scenery.
