A meadow full of crocuses combined with a unique view of the Brienzer Rothorn as well as the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau and the Entlebuch make this meadow a dream location.

Every year

Every spring, when the snow has melted, the heads of the white and purple crocus flowers emerge from the ground.

What a beautiful blaze of colour!

Combined with the white mountain peaks of the Brienzer Rothorn and the well-known Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, there is not only one perfect photo subject. No, it is also the ideal place to switch off, recharge your batteries and simply relax and enjoy nature.

Picnic advantage

Bet you don’t want to leave here anytime soon? This place is too perfect! And that’s exactly why it’s worth taking a nice picnic with you.

The only downer is perhaps that there are a larger number of people to be found at the weekend. Far from overcrowded, but you are not alone.

The reason is that you can drive there almost directly.

But a hike from Trubschachen is also worthwhile, because the border area of the Emmental and Entlebuch created by the glacier is simply indescribably beautiful.

The most important things in brief

The blooming starts as soon as the snow is gone. This is usually the case from the second week of April.

Food: Restaurant Erika (about 15 minutes from the meadow)

How to get there: By public transport to Traubschachen, from there hike in the direction of Rämisgummen (2 hours). Or drive directly to the Rämisgummen.
