We simply love this place- we even love it's name. It is true- this is really simply a transfer point for trains and a starting point for hikes. But so what? It is located in a classic high elevation valley with great views and easy access to the mountain hikes that we crave. And as a side issue, the organizers... More

It is very easy to hike this area, as the hills are gently rolling and beautifully covered by alpine grasses, flowers, and cows with giant clanging bells. Save a whole day to hike this area up, down, across as your skills warrent and you will be incredibly rewarded! Do dress in layers as you may get overheated hiking!

This town is the idyllic Swiss mountain town. It is quaint with some great restaurants and shopping. I would love to return just to stay in this town.

We took a direct train from Lauterbrunnen to KS. From here we took the train to Jungfraujoch. On the way back we lingered a bit here to admire the views before going back. Mannlichen-KS trek is scenic

We arrived just in time for lunch, and spent the day wandering around in the snow, taking photos of the incredible view, and tobogganing. It was marvellous and we can't wait to come back!

Kleine Sheidegg is less of a destination in and of itself and more of a gateway to other places. Yes there are few vistas here, but it is really a train stop and a trail head. It is the point of change for training up to Jungfrau glacier or your can begin a number of hikes up or down the... More

This is a good place for walking from and there are a lot of walks. Once the three little railways came to the station with its two hotels in the whiles of nowhere. Now the trains are seven coaches long or come in sets of threes just to shift the people. Rather a classic case of tourists overwhelming the place... More

Took the tour with " Best of Switzerland tours " our guide Marcel was always jovial, attentive & very informative. Nothing was too much trouble. The tour itself was just what we expected of Switzerland, Very lucky with the weather, generally sunny, but at times low cloud/ mist which changed the whole aspect of the mountain. Also enjoyed our stop... More

I ran the Jungfrau Marathon which ended at the Kleine Scheidegg. What an amazing view this area offers. I am from Florida and we don't have anything like this. You just have to see it this high up to appreciate the mountain and it's splendor. They have several restaurants and a gift shop. You can also do some hiking if... More
