Long beautiful, exceptional views... love this hike! (Not strenuous) Hardly ever pass anyone on the hike too so it’s nice and quiet (not touristy at all) Be sure to stop at Allmendhubel playground (above Mürren)- it’s so fun to sit and have a beer or...More

Our hotel recommended this hike as it's considered easy and is incredibly scenic. I suppose it could be considered easy since there isn't any rock climbing or off-trail walking although once you throw altitude into the mix everything becomes less easy. We started the trail...More

The North Face Trail is a awesome and relatively easy hiking trail. We took the Allmendhubel Bahn from Murren to start our hike along the North Face Trail. We hiked from Allmendhubel - Murren and later on also decided to hike from Gimmelwald-Stechelberg - Lauterbrunnen....More

Definitely leave at least half a day for this hike, if not an entire day. Take your time and enjoy the intense beauty around you. The trails are well marked, but I would suggest looking up which hike you are doing online first so that...More

My husband and I followed the mountain bike trail from Murren to catch the Northface Trail as it was raining (hard) and we wanted to stay on a hard or gravel surface to avoid mud and slippery terrain. Despite the weather, this was still an...More
