The walk starts at the Gasthaus Hämikerberg, an inn which is easily accessible by car or public transport. You walk through Müswangen over the Matten to the Sulzer Kreuz. The path takes you along the edge of the forest via Oberillau to the Horben alp with its good food and great views. You continue through the Sulzer forest back to the Sulzer Kreuz and the Hämikerberg inn, where you can relax over a refreshing drink.

Tip: the inn (alt. 810 m) has a webcam so you can check in the winter months whether the walk is above the fog/clouds before you set off. www.horben.ch
