High Trail Hike from Marbacheregg to Kemmeriboden-Bad

Marbachegg - Ober Habchegg - Kemmeriboden-Bad

Published on 06.05.2016 by GabrielleMerk - Tour Date: 25.10.2015

The High Trail from Marbachegg to Kemmeriboden-Bad is a panorama feast with views across the Emmental and glimpses of the summits of the Bernese Alps to the South. Most of the hike takes place along the base of the very distinctive Schrattenfluh Range with its jagged summit and myriads of vertical clefts, while ahead rises the North Side of the equally distinctive Hohgant Range.

The hike begins at the summit station of the Marbachegg Cable Car and heads eastward along mostly paved walkways to a high plateau, always with the Schrattenfluh Range in one’s sights. Then past individual farmyards, fields and sections of forest, you reach the farm called “Ober Habchegg” from where a fairly steep descent takes you to Kemmeriboden-Bad.

The Hotel at Kemmeriboden-Bad is well-known since generations for its Meringue Dessert and even though it is a popular Sunday destination, it is definitely worth stopping to taste the dessert, or otherwise to enjoy the large patio area. The hotel also has a shop where you can buy local cheeses and other handmade items. And for something different, they also offer a “Sleeping in the Straw” experience.

Another attraction on the route are the carts in Marbachegg. For cart enthusiasts it might be worth taking a ride down for 5 Francs.
