“Easy, unforgettable walk through paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

It's expensive to the get to the top, but it is totally worth. There is no where like this in Switzerland. Switzerland is super beautiful, but some of the best spring and summer walks to get the great views are very difficult. This is an easy walk for anyone and simply stunning views, wonderful places to get a drink or a meal. GO!

“Don't bother with the cable car/gondola ride to Mannlichen...”

Just take the train to Kleine Scheidegg (free if you have the Junfrau Pass) and then hike up.. or, if you like a challenge, hike up from Wengen. :)

“Great view easily”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

From the top station it is an easy 15-20 minute walk to the summit where you have 360° panorama of the mountains including the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. There is also a cafe and children's play area at the top station. The walk back to Kleine Scheidegg was busy but very pleasant.

“Very Scenic Cable Ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

We suggest this run for a lunch and side trip to Wengen. A beautiful way to see the back country around Grindelwald.

“A must when you visit Grindelwald”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

The long gondola ride gives you a wonderful view of the valley and at the top you are on a ridge with a view over two valleys. You can walk up to the Gipfel, have a meal, or walk to Kleine Scheidegg (a bit over an hour).
