Blauherd-Sunnegga Bike Tour (Nr. 5)

This route is for experienced mountain bikers. The trail is relatively easy to start with, but quickly becomes challenging. You’ll be rewarded with cool single trails and incredible views of the mountains.

The cable cars take you up to Blauherd. The trail to Tufteren heads left away from Blauherd station and is initially quite flat. It then becomes more technical and there are some sharp corners to manage. It continues like this until you get past Tufteren. It is well worth stopping occasionally and taking in the amazing views of the Matterhorn, Mettelhorn and Weisshorn.

At the hamlet of Tufteren, the gravel path heads through the beautiful larch and pine forest to Sunnegga.

The best time to ride this route is either early morning or late afternoon, as this route (Flower Trail) is very popular with hikers.

Additional information and recommendations are available from the guest information centre on Bahnhofplatz (by the railway station).

Bike-Tour Blauherd-Sunnegga (Nr. 5)

Diese Tour ist etwas für geübte Mountainbiker. Der Weg beginnt zwar relativ einfach, aber um die engen Kurven zu bewältigen, sollte man nicht das erste Mal auf einem Bike sitzen.

Mit den Bergbahnen geht es hoch bis Blauherd. Der Trail nach Tufteren führt links von der Station Blauherd weg. Der Weg nach Tufteren ist vorerst eher flach. Anschliessend wird es technischer und es gilt, einige enge Kurven zu meistern. So wechselt es sich bis nach Tufteren ab. Es lohnt sich, zwischendurch anzuhalten und sich die grandiose Aussicht auf das Matterhorn, Mettelhorn und Weisshorn anzusehen.

Beim Weiler Tufteren führt die Kiesstrasse zurück durch den schönen Lärchen- und Arvenwald nach Sunnegga.

Es wird empfohlen, diese Route entweder früh morgens oder am späteren Nachmittag zu fahren, da dieser Weg (Blumenweg) bei Wanderern sehr beliebt ist.

Zusätzliche Informationen und Empfehlungen sind im Gäste-Informationscenter am Bahnhofplatz erhältlich.
