Up and down all the way, this dream route leads from Habkern to Thun.

This spectacular tour sets off in Habkern with an ascent to Waldeggallmi. Although technically easy, the climb will still require an investment in sweat and effort.  Once you have reached the top, the route leads steadily downhill, albeit constantly up and down all the way. The entire route runs in a westerly direction on mainly asphalted side roads above deep blue Lake Thun. Well-kept homes, snow-capped peaks and the lake below create a classic picture-postcard idyll. The views from Beatenberg of the iconic triple peaks of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau are breathtaking. After you have passed through Beatenberg (Europe's longest village!), the route descends to Wiler and then by way of Schwanden and Teuffenthal via Steffisburg to Thun. Leave your everyday cares behind on this fantastic tour – with impressions that will linger long after you've reached your destination, the scenic town of Thun.
