Winter hikes on the fondue route

Several high-altitude hiking routes await winter hikers. The highlight of the hiking routes of Schönried is the famous "fondue route". A wonderful way, this "Fondue-route", which runs through the magical landscape on 6 kilometers and gives the view of the magnificent panorama of the Bernese Alps. The fresh mountain air to inhale, radiates at the incredible landscape and enjoys an excellent fondue in a cozy wooden hut. What could be better to make your holiday an extraordinary experience? Only three things are important to be able to enjoy this wonderful path in its fullness: fondue, a little courage and a reservation.

The hike becomes even better when you enjoy your fondue under the open sky. It is enough to order the indispensable "fondue backpack" at the local dairy in Schönried on the eve of the hike. Inside the backpack you will find everything that is necessary for a good fondue (including fondue pot, cooker, crispy fondue bread). Depending on your taste, you can choose between the creamy, classic fondue and a truffle mixture at the Schönried Dairy. Along the banks of the Saane the Yehudi Menuhin philosopher's route leads another very popular route. An interesting way with quote boards, which is also suitable for families.
