Easter Weekend is just around the corner and here are my planned hikes. For the four days I have three Hikes on my list. I am not sure if I will do them all or less, it all depends on the weather. There should be more snowfall this week and just in care I will bring snowshoes with me, just to cover all bases.
As for my missed hikes last weekend and this weekend, I had my reasons some are family related, some are just silly from my part, it all came down that I couldn’t go. With this Easter Hike I want to catch up on some and hopefully just enjoy the time off work.
So my three options two of them are in Appenzell and the other in Lauterbrunnen Bern.
1. Gäbristour (map)
Gäbristour is a roundtrip hike. The hike starts in Gais and from there you hike over a chain of hills to Bühler. From Bühler up to the summit Hochi Bueche, highest point. In the next section you hike up the summit Gäbris just shortly after you reach the Gäbrisseeli, a moor lake. You ascend the summit of the Sommersberg following you reach the Stoss pass. There is a monument commemoration the battle on the Stoss between the Appenzellers and Habsbugrgers in 1405. From there the Hike goes through the valley to Gais.
2. Sämtissersee (map)
I wanted to go and hike there since last August. But for certain reasons back then I couldn’t go and it kind of hunted me since then. The route I want to hike starts in Brülisau and you start the ascent to Alp Soll. There you will have a nice view of the valley and hopefully also of the Santis (which I still didn’t get to see when I was on top of Kronberg). From Sämtisersee the hike goes through the valley to the Fählensee and then a different way back to Brülisau.
My problem to do this hike in winter was that the bus that drives to Brülisau only operates during the week in winter, and when spring starts the service resumes for weekends too. You can organize an alternative or reserve a bus, but it was to much trouble really and I think that option should be used for groups of hikers. Anyway normal service starts at the 29.03.13 and I really, really hope that the weather will be nice, so I can finally do this hike.
3. Grütschalp (map)
This Hike is a winter hike with prepared path to hike without snowshoes. From Lauterbrunnen you take the cable car up to Grütschalp. The hike follows a prepared walking path to Mürren. With nice weather you can see the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. The Lauterbrunnen valley is on my list for a long time and is just didn’t get around of going there. It will be on my list fro this summer, just look at these pictures.
