Unbelievable hike. Scenery breathtaking. The trail easily doable. Signage simple to follow. Very few tourists. Innumerable opportunities for amazing panoramic pictures. Pack a lunch and water.

On a rainy day, this trail can be ideal if you are staying in Murren and looking for a rainy day activity. Like-wise, if you are looking for a non-strenuous 1-hour hike. Vista-wise, this trail is sub-par to views from other trails in this area,...More

Stay near the station and not in the interiors of the town if you are a traveler with heavy bags.This trail is worth it if you are an avid nature lover.You can paint or write poems with this splendid landscape and flora/fauna of this place.

The trail is just beautiful. Once you get up it is a really easy walk. It takes about a half hour to get to the higher elevations. It is peaceful. There are a couple places for lunch or a drink. There are many farm animals...More

If you are in Murren, there is a nice trail that leads from Murren down to Winteregg, and then Lauterbrunnen that follows the rail line. Its mostly flat and wide, and you can hike as little or as far as you want. The scenery... More
