Since 2012, the villages Aeschlen ob Gunten and Sigriswil are connected by a 340 meters long suspension bridge. This spectacular building crosses a deep gorge at a height of 180 meters and is a sensation! The guest card entitles you to the crossing of the bridge for 4 CHF per person instead of 8 CHF. This allows to do the shopping in Sigriswil on foot in about 20 minutes.
Every half hour there is an express bus connection from Sigriswil to Thun railway station and back. Aeschlen ob Gunten can be reached from Oberhofen by a yellow STI bus.
