From the bus stop «Brügg» the path soon leads out into the countryside. Only a few steps further on the hiking trail you are in the municipality of Uetendorf. The entire Stockhorn chain with its striking mountain top is already showing its full splendor. The ascent to Willerrüti is short, but also a bit tough.

At Willerrüti the path turns left towards Thierachern. After a small forest, where numerous wild bees, beetles and butterflies do their daily work, the path continues along the main road to the hamlet of Hubel. There you have a wonderful view of the Lake Thun region with Niederhorn and Sieben Hengste on one side and Niesen and Stockhorn with its mountain range on the other. Also at Wahlenbach shortly before Thierachern a stop is recommended, as one can observe there among other things the Beautiful Demoiselle with her flight dance.

From Thierachers the path leads to Wahlers. The hikers then go over field and short steep forest paths to Sandbüel and on to Uebeschi. After the cheese dairy, you walk along the main road for a short distance, then the hiking route branches off to the left. In the idyllic Gänsemoos it is worth to rest. The whole hike towards Honegg offers wonderful viewpoints.

No wonder time flies by. The destination, the village of Blumenstein, is already in sight. The path leads over a dusty road down to Büel, through a small piece of forest with a steep forest path. Then it leads over the meadows into the village with its beautiful houses and courtyards to the community center.
