This is a nice, relaxing little walk in a serene landscape best done when vacationing in this area:

Sparenmoos, a high moorland located above the village of Zweisimmen in the world-renowned Gstaad-Saanenland region and a cross-country-ski Utopia, is a tranquil escape from city bustle AND the noise and action generally found on alpine ski hills.

The 7-km walking trail offers lots of variety, an undulating landscape weaving in and out of evergreen copses sparkling in their winter garb, accompanied by the light swooshing of the cross-country skiers on the trail nearby, and with panorama vistas of the Vaud Alps and the Simmental Valley. If the air is clear, you can even see the white expanse of the Glacier de la Plaine Morte to the West.

At the half-way point of the walk at Schiltenegg, beneath the mighty Hundsrügg Ridge, is a barn where you can sit on a bench in the sun, enjoy a picnic and the views. Around the back of the barn, the trail loops eastward, and takes you back along more serene landscapes in a loop slightly northwards of the first section, back to the starting point at Sparenmoos, where you can enjoy refreshments at the Berghotel before returning to Zweisimmen.
