Chlustobelweg hike

An entertaining walk through the Chlustobel for the whole family with games, fun and excitement.

This idyllic, family-friendly route is suitable for young and old alike. On an easy hiking trail across meadows and along forest paths, you can hike from Weissbad to Brülisau in about one hour (which can be extended with a barbecue). The shady forest passages are particularly attractive on hot summer days and the hike is also especially beautiful in the colourful autumn. Shortly after the train station in Weissbad, you cross the Brüelbach stream, which the hike then follows. After a very short section on the pavement, you walk on natural ground the whole time. Past the last houses in the «Scheregg» neighbourhood, you alternately walk in the forest or along the edge of the forest. Slightly uphill and with beautiful views towards Hoher Kasten and Sigel, you will finally reach Brülisau. The murmur of the stream will be your constant companion. You can either return back to Weissbad by bus or by foot along the same route.
