Alp-Style Macaroni & Cheese high above the Schächen Valley

Biel/Kinzig - Selez - Fleschsee - Hüenderegg - Eggbergen

The sunny terrace between Biel-Kinzig and Eggbergen in the Schächen Valley is a popular hiking area both in summer and in winter.

From the Biel cable car station, the trail goes straight up to a small chapel, and then to the left near the Edelweiss hotel. From here it's less than an hour to the back of the Selez Valley where there is a lovely family-run alp restaurant with a cozy dining area and also a great view terrace. After the best Alp-style Macaroni & Cheese (secret recipe!) with apple-sauce or pork steaks, you can enjoy a few ZZZ's in the sun in their reclining chairs.

After lunch the hike continues toward Eggberge; at the junction to the Fleschseeli (Flesch Lake) there are two options to continue on to Eggberge: One is via the lake and then downhill through a forested area, and the other to the left up to the Hüenderegg look-out, which is recommended. You get fantastic views all the way South over the Uri Alps and Northwest to Lake Lucerne.

From here the trail goes down along the ridge to the Eggberge Summit station of the cable car to Flüelen.
