It is a short, steep walk up from the cable car terminus, but it is well well worth the effort (greater effort at this altitude). The views all around are stunning on a clear day. It's a well signed and protected walk, so no real...More

Nice hike from Kleine Scheidegg which took about 2 hours ending at the royal walk (alternatively you could take a cable car from Grindelwald directly). Great panoramic view of the area and unobstructed view of the Monch, Eiger and Jungfrau up close. However this is...More

It's a steep albeit short walk up to some fantastic views. The trail is a switchback so you're not climbing straight up for most of it. Well worth it.

This is a fabulous, easy walk and the views just keep getting better. We were lucky enough to visit when the avalanche barriers were being inspected (by helicopter) and were impressed with how thoroughly this was done.

A very steep short walk up to the top, but there are seats on the route. The view from the top is worth the climb, Interlaken and lakes, Shynigge Platte, Grindelwald, the Jungfrau mountains, Murren, etc

That quote is surely true for this case for the Royal Walk! It’s about a 30 minute all uphill hike. It’s steep, tiring, but as long as you take breaks appropriate to your endurance and drink water, you’ll be fine. The views are fabulous. From...More

Accessed this via gondola from Wengen on the "other" side. Pretty steep but a reasonably short hike and worth it for the 360 degree views of both sides (valley of Lauterbrunnen and its waterfalls on the Wengen side)

The walk is short but the part going up to the crown is steep and not really suitable for family with children or elderly. Actually you can have the great views at where the walk starts, where the Maennlichenbahn cable car station is located. For...More
