The round-hike starts in Oberschongau at the church and leads through the forest on the Lindenberg to the Horben alp restaurant, situated at 800 m above sea level and offering hearty food and desserts accompanied by wonderful panoramic views in fine weather. The interpretation panel near the restaurant indicates the peaks you can see. You then pass through the Sulzer forest to the Sulzer cross. There the path leads over a sunny expanse to Müswangen. With its fantastic views of the Central Swiss and Bernese Alps, the Hämikerberg guesthouse is a great place to enjoy the sunset. You end by walking along the edge of the forest back to Oberschongau.

Tip: in autumn/winter, visit the webcam page of the Horbenalp restaurant (www.horben.ch) to see if the Horben is in the couds or not!
