The small Brusee lies secludedly embedded in the wild romantic mountain landscape of the Obergoms. After the ascent from Biel/Bienne, which is rich in elevation meters, treat yourself to an extensive rest at the cool Brusee before you continue on your way. Passing the stony Honeggerhorn you will reach the middle lake and further downhill to the beautiful Spilsee. Via the popular panorama path you finally reach the mountain station Flesche / Bellwald.
