Tips

  • Martina

    If you are in this area, the ascent to the summit itself only takes 5 minutes and the way up is not technically demanding and the view from the top is extremely beautiful and very, very worthwhile!
    The paths that lead to the breeze, however, are T3 paths and require a certain head for heights.
    It is important not to confuse the Brisen with its big brother, the Hoh Brisen. There is no marked trail on the Hoh Brisen and classified on the T5 scale. The path to the Hoh Brisen is very exposed, you have to walk an approx. Half a meter wide brittle ridge and is only recommended for experienced mountaineers who are absolutely free from giddiness and sure-footed.

    Wonderful mountain, easy to hike from the Klewenalp or Haldigrat

    If the chairlift to the inn Haldigrat drives, you take him better. The ascent to the inn is steep and actually always goes under the lift. For athletes but great.

    Great view, especially after an exciting climb over the Haldigrat.

    The 2404m high summit is quite easy to climb, but when you're up there, you have a great view of Lake Lucerne and glaciers.
