The little village of Lungern is characterised by lush green flower meadows, fascinating wildlife, a shimmering emerald-green lake (up to 23°C warm in summer) and brilliant views of the mountains.

One of the loveliest cycle paths is the circular route around the lake, which is both leisurely and fascinating.

The starting point is in Obsee, right by the lower terminus of the Lungern-Turren aerial cableway, location of the famous Brünig Indoor underground shooting sports centre. In the months of June and July, over 100 species of butterflies can be observed in the Brünig-West natural paradise.

After Kaiserstuhl and Bürgeln, the tour leads past the Dundelbach waterfall. A short detour is worthwhile to this unique two-stage fall, which boasts national protection status.
