Rinderberg - Wistätthorn Map

From the village of Zweisimmen or from the ski area Schönried - Saanenmöser - Zweisimmen you take the cable car up to the top station of the Rinderberg. After a short first ascent with a few vertical meters, you already reach the summit of the Rinderberg. From there it is downhill over the ridge to the Parwengensattel, which can also be reached by chairlift. Then follows the short variant descent to the "Rüwlispass". From there the ascent to the "Hinder Laseberg" begins. The route then follows the ridge in the direction of the Rüwlishorn. In the basin below the Rüwlishorn the ascent continues in southern direction along the ridge. The Wistätthorn offers a unique view over the Bernese Alps and the Gastlosen. The ski descent can be back to the ski area, to the village of St. Stephan or to Turbach.



Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.
