You can reach the Maennlichen by the Maennlichenbahn, a cable car which takes you atop from Griendelwald first.The ride is almost for 20-30 mins and once atop you can take the royal walk.It is a easy hike and can be done by inexperienced too.

Gives you a great 360 degree view around the area. The walk up is rather steep and kind of rocky in places, but it is worth the effort.

Don't be misled by the time stated for reaching the summit. It definitely takes more than 30 min to reach the peak. It can get crowded at the crown hence choose a quieter time to ascend.

This last adventure once you reach the top by foot will make you feel as if you own the world with the views. Again try for a clear day. An uphill 20 minute walk on a fairly smooth road will earn your the paper crown...More
