The Alpine Panorama Trail stretches 510 kilometres across Switzerland, from Rorschach on Lake Constance all the way to Geneva. The hike from Lüderenalp to Moosegg is the 15th stage of the trail.

You begin on Lüderenalp, a popular destination for day trips in the Emmental with beautiful views of the Jura region and the Bernese Alps. But you’ll have to say goodbye to those for the time being, because you’re starting with a descent! It will take about two hours until you reach the Dürsrütiwald forest, where you’ll encounter one of the forest’s oldest silver firs – it has been growing there for over 350 years. From there, you’ll be able to see the end of the stage, the Moosegg. You then continue further downhill to Emmenmatt, where the river Ilfis flows into the Emme. After passing old farms and fields, you’re headed uphill again.

At the end of this hike, the Moosegg Hotel awaits (yay!), where you can recharge your batteries after the strenuous, 90-minute ascent. The hotel is best known for its excellent cuisine – the chef’s delicious creations have earned them 16 GaultMillau points. Our recommendation: Instead of returning home, why not spend the night and hike the 16th stage to Münsingen the next day?
