Lauterbrunnen - Alpweg - Winteregg - Mürren



7.54 km long
Hiking Trail

This scenic hike takes you from Lauterbrunnen up the steep alp trail along the aerial cableway route to Grütschalp. From Grütschalp station, a wide gravel trail climbs - steeply at first - where it continues at a gentler incline through magnificent alpine forest. Lauterbrunnen, the starting point of the hike, can barely be made out in the valley below; the wide grassy meadows of Bletschenalp obscure most of the views of the steep cliffs reaching up from the valley floor. At the source of the waterfall. The wide alpine trail leads past flowering meadows and a large alp hut into the narrow shaded valley through which the Staubbach steam flows. Just a few hundred metres downhill, this gently gurgling stream becomes a mighty waterfall as it cascades over the cliff edge to the valley below. The trail continues through another shaded forest section before passing Winteregg. From here, the route leads mainly parallel to the Grütschalp-Mürren railway line. Picture-postcard views: The train compositions proceed at a leisurely pace through the magnificent mountain scenery, providing a colourful contrast to the deep-green firs lining the forest trail to Mürren. At intervals, gaps between the trees reveal picture-postcard views of the Jungfrau and the Schwarzmönch.
