I loved being here; I visited twice during my four days in the area. I arrived by riding the roof of the cable car- you have to pay an extra Buc (CHF5) to do it but it is so worth it. I passed through dry,...More

Take the cable car from Wengen to Maennlichen. Start a walk from Maennlichen to Kleine Scheidegg enjoying beautiful views of the snow mountains all the way. Can do this within about 3 hours. Highly recommended !

I went up both sides from Grindelwald (in cable cars) and from Wengen (in Gondola). Playground for kids and many different views. There is also a nice walk to Kleine Scheidegg with even better views.

You can get it from the main Swiss railways, SBB. You can buy it online or at most train stations in Switzerland. But the card, which a lot of Swiss people have (called Halbtax) and which gives you half off on basically all... More

My wife & I are intending to go Interlaken next winter and would like to ask if all the walking trails are closed? Are there only skiing & winter sports available? We intend to do the following: Trümmelbach Falls, Lauterbrunnen Valley Waterfalls First Cliff by Tissot (Grindelwald) Royal Walk (Grindelwald) The Wetterhorn (Grindelwald) Schynige Platte Maennlichen Romantikweg (Grindelwald) Giessbach Falls Piz Gloria Aare Gorge The Eiger Trail Thrill Walk Felsensteg Birg (Murren) ...More

You've already asked this question before and I replied that much of what you plan is for a summer trip. I linked you a map that shows the winter trails. Things haven't changed and Trummelbach falls are still closed, as are most of the trails. Schilthorn and First are open. There is a wealth of information on the Jungfau web site.

Cable car and cog wheel cars Open in May? (2 Replies)
Hi, We will be in Schweiz May 27 - May 31. It sounds like the Maennlichen cable car starts on May 31 which may not give us much time. Does anyone know when others start this year? Just trying to make sure we can go up to the peaks when we are there. thanks.

Response frommostlybytrain|
All the railway lines up to Jungfraujoch will be open as should the Cable Cars up the other side of the valley to Murren and the Schilthorn. The opening of others will depend on the weather and the end of the skiing season, normaly between seasons the cable cars get an overhaul or 'revision.'
Max Riders in Gondolas?? (3 Replies)
Hi! This is our family's first visit to Switzerland...I was just reading that the Grindelwald Maennlichen gondola cableway seats only 4 people? Can someone confirm this? Are there other lifts that only fit a small number of people <6 ? I only ask because we have 4 small kids (aged 7-10) so we have 6 people if all riding together. It's no big deal if we need to split up but didn't expect to need to and would like to be prepared ahead of time so each parent can have a camera etc. ...More

I'm not sure how many the Mannlichen gondola carries, but yes I am pretty sure it is four people. I would suggest that you split your party so that you have an adult and two children in each cabin, three is acceptable and no one would argue with that. i have traveled up on my own in a cabin and that is acceptable.
