09: Brünig Pass to Ringgenberg

Between lakes and canyons, beneath eternal snows

Today, the journey unfolds majestically from the peaks of the Brünig Pass, embracing the Bernese Oberland in a harmonious dance between the azure and limpid expanses of Lake Brienz and Lake Interlaken, and the dizzying summits that stand like guardian deities, among which the Finsteraarhorn, the Eiger, the Mönch, and the Jungfrau proudly reign over the region. This stage reveals itself as a striking tableau, sometimes wild in rocky ravines, where nature unfolds all its splendor. From Brienz, the route climbs three times from the lakeside villages to better embrace the heights before plunging back into the valleys immediately. Each passage is an invitation to discovery, where ancient wooden structures, adorned with elaborate carvings, vie for magnificence. The small town of Brienz, in particular, unveils its treasures of woodcarvings, bearing witness to a local craftsmanship steeped in tradition. Further along, the path ventures through woods, wild canyons, and pastoral landscapes, offering breathtaking panoramas of Lake Brienz at every turn, its waters tinted by the whims of the heavens. Here, churches are scarce, replaced by temples, as the canton of Bern remains deeply rooted in the Protestant tradition.

It is worth emphasizing once again that traversing the Way of St. James in German-speaking Switzerland is a perpetual enchantment, a renewed experience with every step. Beyond the meadows and groves that follow one another, rural heritage reveals itself in all its diversity, reflecting the specificities of each valley. In this land of husbandry and dairy tradition, farms and peasant dwellings, products of ancestral know-how, shine in their original splendor.

We divided the course into several sections to make it easier to see. For each section, the maps show the course, the slopes found on the course, and the state of the roads. The courses were drawn on the “Wikilocs” platform. Today, it is no longer necessary to walk around with detailed maps in your pocket or bag. If you have a mobile phone or tablet, you can easily follow routes live.

Difficulty level: The elevation gains of this day prove to be highly significant (+645 meters/-1050 meters), making the stage demanding and strenuous for the legs. After climbing the marked slopes above the Brünig Pass, the steep descent towards Brienzwiler, with a drop of over 400 meters, attests to the ruggedness of the path. Roller coaster-like stretches punctuate the route to Brienz and beyond, where the route winds between canyons and villages, ultimately descending to the shores of the lake at Ringgenberg. During this stage, you will encounter a myriad of canyons, sometimes dried up, which are in fact only remnants of mountain erosion, majestic rockslides, or avalanche corridors Ringgenberg has witnessed over time.

State of the Via Jacobi: In this stage, the routes on both paths and roads are equivalent:

  • Paved roads: 12.5 km
  • Dirt roads: 11.5 km

It’s clear that not all travelers are comfortable using GPS and navigating via smartphone, and there are still many areas without an internet connection. As a result, you find a book on Amazon that covers this journey.

Sometimes, for reasons of logistics or housing possibilities, these stages mix routes operated on different days, having passed several times on Via Podiensis. From then on, the skies, the rain, or the seasons can vary. But, generally this is not the case, and in fact this does not change the description of the course.

It is very difficult to specify with certainty the incline of the slopes, whatever the system you use.

For those seeking “true elevations” and enthusiasts of genuine altimetric challenges, carefully review the information on mileage at the beginning of the guide.

Section 1: A long and demanding descent to Brienzwiler

Overview of the route’s challenges: a difficult and arduous descent, even in good weather. In some places, the slopes exceed 30%. Nearly 500 meters of negative elevation.

The Via Jacobi begins its descent from the Brünig Pass, winding along the road just below the elegant Kulm hotel. At this precise point, it slopes up above the asphalt, avoiding the constant flow of cars that crowd it during the day.

Today, the skies bless us with their rain, at least at the beginning of this stage. This watery cloak deprives us of the panoramic view of the valley. The imposing peaks of the Bernese Alps – the Eiger, the Mönch, the Jungfrau – even in clear weather, remain elusive, concealed by the rugged contours of the valley. A winding path stretches along the road, offering an alternative to the traffic turmoil.

A little further on, the route deviates from the central axis of the valley, gradually climbing towards the peaceful hamlet of Herweg.

Further upstream, a path winds through the foliage, leading to a clearing where the modest barns of Brääch proudly stand. In Switzerland, the beech is exploited with unparalleled fervor, its logs carefully arranged along the paths frequented by tractors.

Shortly after, the path makes its way through the vast Uochwald forest, a dense woodland that the Via Jacobi will traverse to Brienzwiler. The slope increases slightly in the heart of this beech forest, where some conifers dot the landscape, mainly spruces. Here, the air resonates with the echoes of the alpine pastures.

Then begins a long and steep descent through the forest, punctuated by particularly strenuous sections, where the slopes often exceed 25%. This descent ranks among the steepest on the Way of St. James in Switzerland, rivaling the descent to Lake Lucerne at Beckenried or the sustained gradients leading to Wattwil or Schwyz. In the tangle of this steeply sloping forest, where every step is a challenge to gravity, the forest stretches like a fabric stretched over an irregular frame. The beech trees, intertwined in a millennial dance, seem to defy the sky with their gnarled branches and sturdy trunks. The roots, like eager fingers, cling to the unstable ground, digging grooves in the soft earth, silent witnesses to the constant struggle against gravity. The ground, littered with dead leaves and blunt stones, seems to want to slow down any hasty movement, reminding with each step the need for caution. Each turn of the path reveals new challenges, steep slopes where the earth yields under the weight of the intrepid traveler. Unstable stones roll underfoot, creating a symphony that harmonizes with the cracking of dead branches.

Beyond the shadow of the undergrowth, the horizon opens up to breathtaking panoramas, offering a reward to those who dare to face the challenges of the steep forest. The Brienz and Interlaken valleys unfold before you like a breathtaking spectacle.

Further down, the path finally leaves the forest cover and crosses the Dorfbach, a dried-up stream, but one whose floods must be formidable, judging by the imposing concrete dam that borders it. Shortly after, the path makes its way through the vast forest, a dense woodland that the Via Jacobi will traverse to Brienzwiler. The slope increases slightly in the heart of this beech forest, where some conifers dot the landscape, mainly spruces. Here, the air resonates with the echoes of the alpine pastures.

Shortly after, a road guides you to the heights of Brienzwiler, where the village unfolds in all its splendor. Brienzwiler, an enchanting village if ever there was one, reveals its charms to those who know how to appreciate them. In the canton of Bern, opulence is found primarily within rural communities.

Brienzwiler, like an emerging jewel, charms with its wooden houses, true witnesses of a glorious past. Here, there are no simple farms, but elegant residences with brown facades, weathered by time. The windows almost touch each other, and embroidered curtains add a touch of refinement. Sometimes, modest galleries stretch under hipped roofs, adorned with geraniums, floral emblems of the balconies of the German-speaking Alpine villages of Switzerland.

Each building seems to embody the very essence of tradition and authenticity. Beams worn by time tell forgotten stories, while facades testify to the talent of yesteryear’s craftsmen. Wherever the gaze falls, delicate details amaze, revealing the perfection of lines and the finesse of ornaments. In this precious heritage of wooden houses, so ancient that they seem to breathe grace and beauty, every moment spent contemplating this heritage is a moment of pure ecstasy. It is certainly one of the most beautiful villages you will have the chance to discover on the Way of St. James in Switzerland.

At the exit of the village, the road to Hostetten winds through a wooded clearing. Until Brienz, the Way of St. James stretches almost horizontally. Soon, the path passes by a vast riding stable, a testament to the human activity that animates these lands.

Section 2: False descents towards Lake Brienz

Overview of the route’s challenges: straightforward route.

Immediately after, the Via Jacobi veers off the asphalt road to take a dirt path plunging into a dense forest, where a babbling stream winds its way through the heart of the trail. Here, the forest displays a rich diversity of vegetation, combining majestic spruces with delicate deciduous trees, primarily beeches with lush foliage. Sun rays struggle to penetrate the dense foliage, creating interplays of shadows and light that dance upon the ground strewn with moss and fallen leaves, while the crystalline murmur of the brook accompanies hikers’ steps with a soothing melody

Subsequently, the path crosses the locality of Bifing, where a stop awaits travelers before further crossing the Eistlenbach stream. Nearby stands the remarkable open-air museum of Ballenberg, a true showcase of traditional Swiss countryside architecture from days past. The Via Jacobi does not stray there.

Further on, the path emerges from the woods to meet the asphalt, traversing the village of Hostetten beim Brienz with its elegant wooden houses, almost as charming as those in Brienzwilwer. Balcony-adorned facades bear witness to the craftsmanship of local artisans, while cobbled alleys still resonate with tales of past generations. The atmosphere there is steeped in tranquility, as if frozen in time.

To mention the art of woodworking here seems obvious. Leaving the village, a factory specializing in wooden toys unveils astonishing sculptures of stylized cows. Each piece seems to possess its own life, a testament to the talent and passion of local artisans for their craft. The characteristic scent of freshly worked wood tickles the nostrils, inviting visitors to discover the soul of this ancestral craftsmanship. A gigantic stylized wooden cow reigns in the showcase.

The Via Jacobi then continues its journey towards Schwanden, under the majestic guard of a Simmental breed bull. The imposing and proud animal seems to watch over pilgrims benevolently, its silhouette majestically outlined against the backdrop of the surrounding mountains. Its powerful stride evokes the serene strength of the alpine landscapes that surround it, offering travelers a sense of security and serenity.

Soon, the road gives way to a wide dirt path delving into the countryside. Here, only pastures extend as far as the eye can see, with few or no crops in sight. The region is dedicated to dairy farming, where Simmental cattle reign as undisputed masters. The modest gray cows of Eastern Switzerland, the Braunvieh, have yielded their place to the proud Simmental. Bernese farmers remain attached to their ancestral breeds, and in these meadows, there are no armies of Holstein cows that one encounters further on, in the Gruyère pastures.

Then, the path plunges under the canopy of ancient beeches and oaks… 

 …before opening up again to the countryside, offering a breathtaking view of Lake Brienz stretching as far as the eye can see. The glistening waters seem to reflect the immensity of the sky, creating an enchanting tableau where shades of blue and green mingle. In the distance, mountains stand like silent sentinels, peacefully watching over the tranquil shores of the lake.

Then, the road begins its descent towards Brienz, first through a grove of verdant trees. The winding path offers panoramic views of the surrounding valleys, where the first signs of approaching civilization can be felt. 

At the edge of the woods, it crosses the heights of Lauenen, a picturesque suburb of Brienz.

Section 3: The beautiful journey through Brienz

Overview of the route’s challenges: a straightforward route before ascending towards the canyons.

 

Further along, the path gracefully winds out of the village confines, finding its way through a woodland where the soothing murmur of the Lammbach accompanies the footsteps of hikers. Crossing the Schwandenbach, just after the confluence of the two streams, the path opens onto the road to Brienz, offering a picturesque view of the surrounding landscape.

This route, unfolding its ribbon towards Brienz, modestly distinguishes itself from the Brünig axis, which has the privilege of skirting the other shore of the majestic lake. A change of direction occurs shortly after for the Via Jacobi, which veers off the Brienz Road to embark on a more modest path, passing under the railway bridge to eventually reach the serene shore.

In the distance, the slender silhouette of the mountains majestically emerges, while the road continues its journey, traversing the channeled Glyssibach between its protective dikes. Although the torrents cascading from the peaks often dwindle to modest flows, caution remains warranted against the potential threat of floods, bearing witness to nature’s relentless force.

Arriving on the “strandweg” (beach path) that meanders along the shore heralds the proximity of Brienz, offering a welcome respite after the dusty adventures of the trail.

Here awakens Brienz’s world of carved wood, where a permanent exhibition of wood sculptures celebrates art in all its forms. This open-air gallery, a testament to a millennium-old tradition revisited by modernity, dazzles with its creativity and audacity, revealing an unknown aspect of Swiss craftsmanship. It is simply sublime, an art that has freed itself from the chains of tradition to fully embrace modern and contemporary expression. You are transported far from the ubiquitous carved fountains, so often encountered throughout the country, into a realm where audacity and creativity constantly push the boundaries of imagination. The splendor of naïve wood carving lies in its very simplicity. Each work seems to be the result of a pure connection with matter and spirit, capturing the essence of raw art. The clean lines and candid motifs reveal an authentic and unadorned beauty, evoking a sense of nostalgia and purity that touches the heart.

The “strandweg” eventually leads to Brienz station, a convergence point for travelers and souls in search of adventure. The coming and going of trains punctuates the peaceful life of the city, providing a dynamic backdrop to this picturesque scene. It’s still the Lucerne-Interlaken Express, which you left at the Brünig Pass and which made a little detour to Meiringen at the other end of the canton, near the major passes of the country.

For those wishing to take a well-deserved break, the option of the steam train to Rothorn is available, promising a dizzying ascent to breathtaking panoramas. The view up there of the lakes and the Alps is exceptional. In good weather, of course.

From the station, the Via Jacobi winds along the lake, amidst the wooden statues that line the path, silent witnesses to boundless creativity, sculpted between horror, tenderness, and sweetness.

Near the bustling harbor and picturesque residences, the Trachtbach flows into the city with refreshing gentleness, bringing life and movement. 

The heart of the small city, home to 3,000 inhabitants, then opens up to visitors, revealing its picturesque alleys and facades steeped in history. The houses are all more charming than the next. It is truly difficult to understand why tourists flock to Interlaken in droves, to a frenetic city where there is not much to see, and largely desert Brienz, a true open-air museum, calm and serene.

A picturesque shop, housing a myriad of carved objects, invites leisurely browsing, offering visitors the opportunity to take home a piece of local craftsmanship, including the small wooden cows made at the Hofstetten factory.

A few additional works, including a curious metal sculpture, pique the curiosity of strollers, awakening their artistic senses before the Via Jacobi resumes its course, leaving Brienz towards the church.

 It should be perfectly clear at this point: those prone to vertigo should avoid following the Via Jacobi from here onwards. Indeed, the path includes a rather dizzying suspension bridge, which sways slightly underfoot. Though devoid of danger, the void stretching beneath your feet can be impressive. For travelers affected by this apprehension, it is preferable to take the train from Brienz to Oberried, where the route can be safely rejoined.

For others, the Via Jacobi climbs along the road behind the church, close to the woodcarvers’ school.

It is here that magnificent residences still flourish, bearing witness to the soul and poetry that permeate Bernese dwellings. 

The road then crosses the Müllibach stream and slopes up to the hamlet of Chilchacher, where the slope becomes steeper, challenging the legs of hikers.

From this height, the lake seems reduced to a mere miniature expanse of water, capturing attention with its relative smallness. Here, the slope becomes gentler, inviting the Via Jacobi to delve into the woods along a wide dirt road.

The dirt road then traverses the woodland to reach Ried, near the Hellgraben, where the mountain becomes severe and imperious, forming truly wild canyons of beauty. “Hell” meaning “hell” in German. You’re almost there.

Section 4: A genuine gymkhana above Lake Brienz

Overview of the route’s challenges: A challenging course, delightful until reaching the suspended bridge over the canyon, then followed by a steady descent.

A picturesque trail winds along the steep flank of the canyon, gracefully descending towards a modest farm where majestic yaks, resembling guardians of the heights, peacefully graze. The atmosphere is infused with deep serenity, only disturbed by the distant murmur of streams hidden in the folds of the valley.

Then, it gently slopes up through the beech forest, revealing the reasonable entrance to the deep Ofenbielengraben canyon. Lush vegetation flourishes around the trail, offering a dazzling display of various greens under the soft rays of the sun. In these lands, the raging floods during the rainy season are rightly feared, but today, only the soothing whispers of nature resonate.

Without delay, the path climbs further through the woods, gracefully winding through an airy forest, where majestic maples proudly stretch their branches, their foliage shimmering like living paintings, in a sense of communion with nature. The raw majesty of geology is unveiled here in the form of rubble torn from the rock walls carved by the ages, bearing witness to the indomitable power of nature.

Further along, lies the gentle Mattgraben canyon, with a trickle of water struggling to emerge from the bowels of the earth.

Further on, travelers or pilgrims gaze admiringly at an imposing metal structure. Do they hesitate to cross the suspended bridge over the Unterweidligraben abyss? This bridge, 70 meters long and one meter wide, sways gently to the rhythm of the courageous passersby, offering unwavering security. Only those afflicted with insurmountable vertigo might feel a shiver. You are permitted to cast a glance below. The void here demands respect.

A wide dirt track then descends for nearly two kilometers through the dense deciduous forest. In Switzerland, the majestic oaks never compete in number with those of France. The beech reigns as a true sovereign among the great trees, while the more modest maples hold a place of honor beside it. Majestic hornbeams are rare in these Swiss lands, sometimes relegated to modest hedgerows sharing space with humble hazelnut trees. The descent is long, but the slope here should not deter the hiker.

Section 5: The route descends towards Oberried and then climbs again

Overview of the route’s challenges: still challenging paths, sometimes with steep slopes.

When the Via Jacobi emerges from the wooded depths, the asphalt carpet supplants the roughness of the trodden earth, offering underfoot a smooth, almost imperceptible transition. You walk on the heights of Oberried, slightly overlooking the lake, where Brienz still outlines itself on the horizon, like a painting in the background. The distant mountains stand as silent guardians, their peaks touching the clouds in an eternal ballet. 

Further down, the road discreetly crosses the peaceful and unobtrusive stream of Hirscherenbach…

…and reaches the heights of the village, where the houses huddle together as if to protect each other from the harshness of the weather.

From the top of the village, it descends to cross the railway and join the coastal road, punctuated by the rhythmic noise of trains.

Certainly, Oberried houses some charming wooden dwellings, but they are fewer in number than those of Brienzwiler, a flagship village along your route.

The Via Jacobi then descends along the shores of the lake, following the curve of the bank, offering walkers changing panoramas where the deep blue of the waters meets the vibrant green of the surrounding meadows.

It then moves away from the lake waters to begin its ascent towards the end of the village, after crossing the stream winding through the meanders of the Louwigraben canyon, channeled perhaps to avoid floods.

Shortly after, it joins the lake road at the end of Oberried.

The Via Jacobi does not linger at the edge of the lake. A road slopes up through the countryside, offering steep slopes in places, challenging walkers while offering breathtaking panoramic views. Walking this way, you might encounter some yaks, their exotic presence adding a touch of strangeness to this familiar Swiss landscape.

Near the place called Talacher, a modest dirt road replaces the asphalt and plunges into the woods in a gentle ascent, revealing at every turn new treasures hidden in the folds of nature.

There, the slope becomes less steep and the path crosses the Grytgraben canyon, dry in fair weather, where only birds dare to brave the solemn silence that reigns there. 

Not a drop of water either in the wild Farlouwigraben canyon, which crowns this ascent, where drought seems to have frozen time, turning each rock into a silent testimony of eternity. What strikes in this stage is the striking contrast between the ruggedness of the canyons, nestled almost at the end of the world, and the serene tranquility of the lakeside, as if two worlds coexist without ever meeting.

Shortly after, the Via Jacobi begins its descent towards Niederried, following a dirt path, which seems to sink deeper and deeper into the bowels of the earth, as if to better reveal its best-kept secrets.

The first steps are taken under the forest cover, on moderate slopes, where every ray of sunlight filters through the foliage to gently caress the faces of the travelers. Here, the beech reigns supreme in the woodlands, constituting the main source of heating in Switzerland, its majesty rising as a symbol of the tranquil strength of nature.

Section 6: The lake is found at the end of the stage

Overview of the route’s challenges: ups and downs, sometimes with very steep slopes.

Clearings become increasingly numerous, while asphalt gradually replaces compacted earth.

Niederried looms on the horizon, nestled by the lake, while the road gracefully crosses a modest stream, whose name gets lost in the village’s meanders.

The road then descends openly towards the lake…

 …joining the lakeside road, in the middle of the village.

Now, the skies pour their tears, accompanying our journey to Interlaken, a dense rain that annihilates any attempt at photography, as not all cameras are yet adapted to this aquatic environment. Like an enchantment, you are now transported into the heart of the burgeoning spring, under a benevolent sky.

The Via Jacobi emerges from Niederried, winding on the road connecting Brienz to Interlaken, then, at the village’s exit, it escapes from the asphalt to climb through dense woods.

In this region, numerous canyons, sometimes modest, sometimes formidable, descend from the mountains like flood or avalanche traps. Here, the path slopes up above the Weidligraben, flirting with the wooded edges overlooking the road

Then, a rocky path becomes very steep as you penetrate deeper into the forest.

In this sylvan setting, plant diversity unfolds in all its splendor, mainly dominated by majestic beech trees, adorned here and there with oaks and conifers, among which pines and spruces stand out. Beeches, recognizable from the first breaths of spring, display singular trunks, while their dead leaves bravely resist on the low branches during winter rigors. This peculiarity, called marcescence, is shared with hornbeams, but the presence of the latter remains rare in these Helvetian lands. However, hedge hornbeams thrive here, alongside hazel trees, whose leaves easily blend with those of hornbeams, and whose catkins abound from autumn, in anticipation of hazelnut harvesting.

Further on, the path stretches peacefully between gneiss blocks, escorted by imposing pedunculate oaks, on which ivy cleverly clings, almost deliberately sparing the smooth-barked beeches.

Far from there, the path edges a fish farm, where waters flow with carefree felicity.

In this remote corner, lumberjacks work with exemplary meticulousness, maintaining the forest zealously, while piles of beech and oak wood neatly line both sides of the wide dirt road.

Then, the path emerges from the woods, near a gravel pit and a sawmill, at a place called Rosswald.

A wide path then gently slopes down towards Ringgenberg, with the snow-capped peaks of the majestic 4,000 of the Bernese Alps as a backdrop. Here, elegant black cows graze, their origin remaining a mystery known only to the owner. They are not of the Hérens breed, famous for its black coat in Switzerland, but rather resemble Angus or Salers, with perhaps a touch of black Simmental.

On the path, appears then a strange procession of hikers, accompanied by goats serving as luggage carriers, a most unusual scene that sometimes brightens your journey.

Then, the tarmac covering gradually replaces the beaten earth, gradually descending towards the village where the castle’s profile timidly emerges.

In this region, the art of dry-stone walls inspires unwavering passion, erecting works of schist, granite, and gneiss, materials omnipresent in this area. One can never extol enough the splendor of rural heritage.

Further down, a small road completes its journey by plunging into the village, overlooking the cantonal road and the railway track.

The Via Jacobi crosses the cantonal road and swiftly heads towards the station, now running alongside the railway track towards the castle.

Under the protective shadow of the Ringgenberg castle-church, the course fades away.

In the 13th century, the lords of Brienz erected an imposing fortress on the hill, quickly brought down during a local revolt. In the 17th century, the current church emerged in its place, adorned at the end of the 19th century with a clock and an organ, famous for hosting the agile fingers of Felix Mendelssohn.

Ringgenberg (2,700 inhabitants) stretches into a vast village, where wooden houses of all ages harmoniously intertwine. The only downside is the cantonal road that crosses it from end to end, nevertheless brightened by splendid residences.

Masonry architecture is rare, giving way to wood which, in humble proximity to the earth, composes the very essence of these dwellings. Some houses still proudly display their shingled facades or carved wooden ornaments.

In this region, territorial planning is carried out with unwavering rigor. The Bernese farmer holds a particular pride in his dwellings, favoring wood for new constructions, in the hope of perpetuating the charm of old houses.
