About this route
This varied and easy route lets you explore the surroundings of the village of Frutigen. You will first pass the village’s centre on your way to a small district with chalets and farms. Then, after having walked through the forest and along the river Engstlige, you will reach the hamlet of Reinisch, where the route continues through meadows to the Tellenburg ruin. A path passing the small town of Rybrügg will then lead you to Kanderbrück and back to Frutigen. The Tellenburg ruin is situated on a small hill and therefore offers a wonderful view of the Kander valley and the Kander viaduct, used by local trains between Spiez and Kandersteg.
