The eighth and final stage of the Tell Trail leads from Lungern over Canton Lucerne's highest peak, the Brienzer Rothorn, to Sörenberg.
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.

 

Walking time: approx. 5.5 hours | Hiking distance approx. 15 km (without cableways) | Total elevation gain 1,170 m (including cableways 1,992 m) | Total elevation loss 480 m (including cableways: 1,530 m)
