Augstmatthorn Hike 

Dear Exchangies,

The Augstmatthorn offers an INSANE view over lake Brienz and its surroundings. It is the perfect hike to show pictures to your relatives back home – so join us for an amazing ridge line hike on the north side of lake Brienz on the 13th of June. ;D

We’ll start from Interlaken, are going to pass Harder Kulm with its panorama terrace and follow the ridge line all the way up to Augstmatthorn, followed by a very steep descent back to Niederried, where we’re going to take the train back to Zurich in the evening.

Please be aware that this is a very difficult hike! Don’t register if you don’t consider yourself fit, don’t have hiking boots and aren't already somewhat experienced in hiking. We’re going to do 1700m of altitude on our ascent, as well as the descent by covering a distance of 18km in roughly 8 hours. What we’re trying to say is: Be prepared!

We’re looking forward to pass an awesome day with you in the mountains! :D

Make sure to bring hiking boots, enough water (seriously, bring like 3 liters minimum), and a lunch (and maybe also dinner) with you! If we're fast enough, we can take a dip in lake Brienz, so don't forget your trunks/bikini. :)

We're starting our journey at 06:45 at Zurich HB and will go to Interlaken (arrival: 9ish), where we start the hike. Our train back leaves at 18:15 from Niederried, which means that we're going to be back in Zurich around 20:30.
