Brenggen reservoir lake

At Metsch, the Brenggen reservoir lake invites you to marvel

A touch of the Caribbean in the midst of a dreamlike mountain world.

The comfortable cable car Stand-Xpress Metsch takes you from Wednesday to Sunday up to 2'100 m.a.s.l. There a fantastic view with a 360 degree mountain panorama awaits you. From the Metschstand you can reach the Caribbean-like reservoir lake Brenggen in only 20 minutes on foot. An ideal place to linger and enjoy the mountain scenery. On the Hahnenmoospass, where Adelboden and Lenk shake hands, a short detour is recommended for a stopover on the terrace of the Hahnenmoos mountain restaurant. A gentle hike takes you back to the Metschstand with its rustic mountain restaurant Standhütte. The gondola lift then takes you comfortably back to the Lenk valley floor.


From Lenk train station there is a bus to Rothenbach valley station or you can reach the valley station on foot in 15 to 20 minutes. Parking spaces for cars are available.
From there, take the Stand-Xpress gondola to the Metschstand.
