This page is dedicated to all hikers who would like to know
more about the locations of Schilthorn and the Andrist Alps.
Starting points for tours:
- Schilthorn to Wild Andrist and back to Schilthorn (approx. 4-5 hours)
- Kiental to Schilthorn (approx. 6-7 hours)
Be aware of the following facts:
Neither tour is easy. You should be in a good health. The Kiental-to-Schilthorn tour is particularly demanding, suited only for well-trained hikers.
An aerial tramway ascends the Schilthorn. Thus the first route is much easier, because you don't have to gain that much height by foot.
More detailed tour descriptions are planned for later.
