The hike starts in the village of Lungern by emerald-green Lake Lungern. After a short walk, you reach the lower terminus of the Lungern-Turren cable car and take it up to Turren. From here you pass via Rückenegg and Zwischenegg over the Eisee saddle to the Brienzer Rothorn. A grandiose panorama encompassing the Bernese Oberland and turquoise Lake Brienz spreads out before you. A cable car ride down to Schönenboden and a leisurely walk to Sörenberg conclude the day's outing and thus the eighth stage of the Tell Trail.
