Burtschasattel circuit hiking | Bürserberg

This comfortable round tour starts at the Burtschasattel. The starting point can be reached comfortably from Brand with the village and panorama cable car. From the mountain station, you then walk through a short section of forest down to the Klampera Alpe or Klampera Stall. From there follow the signs downhill towards the Einhornbahn II mountain station. The path runs over some wooden footbridges and is very popular with children. At the Einhornbahn II mountain station, turn right along the trail to the Fuchsbau - a stop is worthwhile. The trail continues from the Fuchsbau quite easily to the Burtscha Alpe. At the Burtscha Alpe the path leads past and back uphill (hiking trail or along the forest path) to the Burtschasattel, back to the starting point. Alternatively, the way back can also be mastered with the Loischkopf cable car. From the top station of the Loischkopfbahn, it is a 15-minute downhill walk back to the Burtschasattel.

Equipment

Sturdy shoes, warm clothing, rain and sun protection and walking sticks are recommended. Cell phone in case of emergency.
