The Cycling Tour 890 Frienisberg Scenic Route is a feast for the eyes. The heart of this route with a view is the Chutzenturm tower: after climbing the 234 steps to the top, you will be rewarded with an impressive panoramic view from Titlis to Moléson. On clear days, you can even spot Mont Blanc in the distance. At the Büsselimoos nature reserve and the Leutschen and Frieswilhubel scenic points, informative panels provide interesting facts about the impressive area. The Büsselimoos nature reserve is one of the smallest nature reserves in the canton of Bern.

In between scenic points, take the time to try local delicacies at the charming farm shops, treat yourself to a hearty meal or refreshing beverage at one of the welcoming restaurants, or relax and have a snack by an idyllic barbecuing pit.
