Description

The starting point for this hike is located next to the restaurant just above the summit station. There is a short ascent before the trail takes a left turn to the west, leading along the slope to the Tuba lookout point. This is the starting point for a wonderful panoramic trail to the Oberberghorn: to the left, the waters of Lake Brienz glisten like a turquoise gemstone, to the right you can survey the majestic Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau peaks. The trail leads below the Alpine Garden straight back to the summit station. Alpine Garden; The Alpine Garden is well worth a visit. Alpine flowers in bloom provide a display of riotous colour and a bewitchingly lovely scent. This trail, which is almost one kilometre long, takes you through the Alpine Garden and gives you an excellent overview of the Alps' impressive botanical wealth. The plant species thriving here in their natural environment are labelled on information plaques, making it simple for the layperson to distinguish the Koch's gentian from the spring gentian. And if you've always wanted to see edelweiss, you're in luck too. The entrance to the Alpine Garden is located next to the mountain railway summit station. Rhe seasonal world of plants, The Alpine Garden, is open daily from 08.30 until 18.00 h from the end of May until mid-September. The entrance fee is included in the railway fare. The around 600 plant species flower in stages: early bloomers appear at the end of May, and the last buds open in September. Admire the Alpine flora at its peak from mid-June until mid-August.
