This hike was incredibly spectacular: snow-capped mountains and wildflowers everywhere! We absolutely loved it. I believe the walk is 45 minutes but it took us 4 hours as we stopped for a picnic lunch and for lots of photos. Wonderful afternoon!

For a really nice photogenic hike in the Alps, hike 45 min from Muerren to Gimmelwald. Shoot lots of photos along the way, glory in the fresh air. The village of Gimmelwad is enchanting. Many photo opps of cow bells, water troughs, goats, cows, farms,...More

The views on the hike were some of the best at the top of the valley. It was not an easy climb, but it was definitely worth it!
