From Losenegg in Aussereriz, this five-hour hike leads over the bridge Koppisbrücke, which connects the sunny and shady sides of Zulggraben. Through woods and meadows you reach Hubel and over Schnabel and Dünzeneg you go to the highest point of this hike – Oberi Matte. With a view of the shores of Lake Thun, the varied hiking trail finally leads to Schwanden and on down to Sigriswil.

From the STI stop «Losenegg» the hike starts on paved roads past farms into a forest. There you have to pay attention for the first time: the route leads over a narrow forest path to the right down to Zulg or Koppisbrücke respectively. This covered wooden bridge connects the two communities of Eriz and Horrenbach. There we recommend a first stop (barbecue place available) to enjoy the view into Zulggraben. The river there still seems inconspicuous, it rushes almost dreamily into the valley, countless water basins lie on its way and enchant its course. After the bridge you go up again to Horrenbachmühli. This is the first time that endurance is required, because when you arrive at this way point, the path continues upwards to let you sweat. Passing the Neuhus farmstead, the trail leads to the Horrenbach school building and further to the ascent in the direction of Hubel. After all, this exhausting section is rewarded with magnificent views in the direction of Hohgant & Co.
From Hubel the trail finally leads along paved roads into the direction of Thüelboden. We now take narrow paths into the direction of Alp Schnabel. The path through Tönimoss to Dünzenegg is quite flat, the view sweeps over Sigriswilergrat and Schwanden. Strong legs are required for Oberi Matte. The hike leads down over meadows and through a mountain forest to the picnic area Stampf to Sagi and on to Schwanden. On a paved road we continue to Schwanden and then on a narrow (forest) road to the idyllic Büelgraben. Shortly before arriving at Sigriswil, it is worth making a detour to Grabenmühle, a small world of adventure in the idyllic natural surroundings. Not only food and beverages are provided for, but also a lot of variety with gold washing or trout fishing for example.
Several restaurants in Schwanden and Sigriswil
