ParkingParking lot Meienberg
On route 11 from Spiez or Château d'Oey to Zweisimmen. There take the partly unpaved private road to Grubenwald to Meienberg. From Grubenwald "Hofstette" is signposted. In Hofstette there is a ticket machine. There you can buy a driving permit including a parking ticket. You stay on the road for about 15 minutes and after about 500 m you reach a gate where there is a small number of parking spaces.
Due to the limited number of parking spaces, we recommend parking at the train station in Zweisimmen and then taking the hiking cab to Meienberg. The hiking cab departs twice a week during the season by appointment at the Tourist Info Point Zweisimmen (+41 33 722 11 33, email@example.com).
