    First of all, this is a perfect hike for kids. 😍🧐👍You will be astonished how children can rejoice over the sculptures carved here.🐂🐩🦜🐿🦔 ...
    Just below the restaurant "Alpengasthof" starts the well-developed hiking trail direction Hinterburgsee. The walk with a stroller is rather exhausting, because sometimes steeper passages have to be mastered and the way is also interrupted by some turnstiles (cattle-keepers). After an approximately 1-hour hike through the varied Alpine landscape, you will reach the idyllic Hinterburgseeli. In this way you can discover more than 90 carved figures (human / animal) by different wood sculptors.
    the idea - way to Hinterburgsee
     avalanche winter 98/99 and storm lothar caused enormous damage at the hinterburg lake and along the path to the axalp. a wild mess of fallen trees, branches and stones. This gave us the idea to carve out the remaining tree-trimming sculptures. other wood sculptors from the brienz region were quickly inspired by our project. With a lot of initiative we set to work. after intensive clean-up work and the strenuous erection of tree trunks, the first spears flew in the summer of 99. Over the years, more than 80 figures have decided today. In 2011, the path was supplemented with an additional, just accessible walk. visit our figures in the beautiful nature in the Bernese Oberland the schnitzler team.
