The «Bernese Oberland Trail» leads from Brünig to Amsoldingen, southwest of Thun, in 3-4 stages. After Brienz, the main route tracks the right bank of the lake as far as Interlaken. This route is closed in winter as the suspension bridge for pedestrians at Eblingen will be dismantled owing to the risk of avalanche (information available from the local authority of Oberried). However, another route is available on the left bank via the Giessbach Falls, and this makes a highly attractive alternative in the summer. The main route follows the right bank of Lake Thun at first. From Merligen (and after a boat ride) it follows the left bank from Spiez to Amsoldingen; however, an alternative right-bank route via Thun is available from Merligen.
