Leisurely winter hike from the Lauchernalp to Wiler.
The route from the Lauchernalp to Wiler is used as a descent by skiers, as a toboggan run by tobogganers and as a winter hiking route by winter hikers - a decidedly multifunctional route, so to speak! A leisurely hike from the Lauchernalp to Wiler via the holiday hamlet of Fischbiel is nevertheless worthwhile. Take a toboggan with you if you prefer to go faster!
