Alpine flower trail Betelberg

Colourful variety of species


On the Alpine Flower Trail on the Betelberg, Mother Nature is the gardener! On the 1.6 km long circular trail there are around 90 signs to help you recognise the well-known and lesser-known alpine flowers.

Access to the original alpine flower trail (circular route) on the Betelberg is at 2'000 m a.s.l. and is located right next to Leiterli mountain station. Simmental cows spend the summer here on the Alp, in the middle of the most beautiful meadows filled with alpine flowers. All of a sudden, a butterfly flutters by, a dragonfly buzzes near the pond, or the lark starts to sing. And with a little luck, you'll hear a marmot whistle too. Many marmots have dug their burrows along the alpine flower trail and tend to come out during the day. Take a little time to gaze at the wonders and enjoy the slow pace of things.
