Habkern's own mountain, the Augstmatthorn, is a proud 2,136 meters high. You can either ascend to the summit from Harder Kulm or from Habkern. The paths are easy to see, but narrow and partially exposed. Especially in the summit area of the Augstmatthorn, freedom from vertigo and surefootedness are required. A large colony of ibex lives on the steep slopes of the Augsmatthorn and the entire Brienz ridge. Especially in the morning and in the evening you have a good chance to watch the shy mountain goats.

A true tightrope walk! To the south, from the ridge you walk on, you have a magnificent view of Lake Brienz and the Alps on this side. In wet weather you have to be very careful, because the roads are well secured, but slippery. Be sure to use hiking boots with a profile on this tour. You can extend the tour to Harder Kulm, but it does not make it more beautiful. In addition to beautiful plant impressions, chamois and ibexes, which stay in the stony terrain, surprise by their maneuverability. Rock fans will find below the ridge on the way to the Roteschwand car park a beautiful limestone quarry, which impressively shows the brittle nature of the lime.
