Visible from afar, the Kaiseregg looms 2,185 m over the village of Schwarzsee. The conquest of this majestic summit is a must for all keen local hikers. This day-long hike is the perfect way to explore the Fribourg Alps. The 1,100 metre ascent does demand a good level of fitness.
Starting point: Schwarzsee, Gypsera car park
Places along the route: Schwarzsee Gypsera - Riggisalp - Salzmatt - Kaiseregg mountain pass - Kaiseregg - Salzmatt - Hürlisboden - Kaiseregg ski lift station - Schwarzsee Gypsera
At the summit, however, the breath-taking panoramic view will justly reward you for your efforts. Alternatively take the Riggisalp chair lift, which will reduce the actual climb to around 700 metres.
