        The impressive high mountain landscape with the glaciated peaks of Susten- and Gwächtenhorn is a real eye-catcher. The S

        ustenhorn itself, at 3502 meters, is the highlight. It attracts many visitors both in summer and winter.

        No wonder the Sustenhorn has been so popular since its first ascent in 1841, when mountaineers set out on foot from Innertkirchen.

        The Normal route to the Sustenhorn is ideal for beginners. The difficulties are moderate, and the path is usually well-marked. The starting point is the Tierberglihütte, which can also be reached via a via ferrata. From there, you have a fantastic view of the Uri and Bernese Alps.

        The tour is classified as difficulty level L.

        You’ll need about 3 to 3.5 hours to cover the 730 meters of altitude.

        Plan for the descent approximately 1.5 to 2 hours, with the same 730 meters of altitude.
