    Barrhorn
    Description

    The Barrhorn is the highest summit in Switzerland that can be reached without climbing or crossing glaciers. It makes for a good high-alpine mountain biking tour.

    The ascent begins in Gruben, which can be reached by taking the gondola lift to Oberems and then riding in a taxi. From there, the route continues uphill through the Turtmanntal valley. After a short stretch where you will have to push your bike, you will come to the Turtmann mountain lodge. It is recommended to arrive in the evening and stay overnight in the lodge. You will have to carry your bike for the rest of the ascent to the Barrhorn. However, the view from the summit is as beautiful as the ascent is rough. You get the chance to take your mountain bike into the midst of a high-alpine world. Phenomenal! The descent leads along the same route as the ascent. Good bikers can ride the entire way except for two spots. You pass by the Turtmann mountain lodge again and take the hiking trail that leads parallel to the mountain road into the Turtmanntal valley. Following the Turtmann river, you will reach the town of Turtmann. The descent is exactly 3,000 meters altitude long, making it the longest in Switzerland.
