best season

King for a day. Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau rise majestically.

The "Royal Walk" leads from the top station of the Männlichen cable car via the gravel dome to the summit. On the way there is a whole kingdom to discover. The path through the future kingdom begins at the entrance gate. On the way the hikers meet a court painter, explore a variety of treasures and get to know your court. Who the secret ruler of the region really is will be revealed at the end of the hike.

Already the approach to Männlichen is a small adventure. From Grindelwald the world's longest cable car takes young and old up to the top. From Wengen the "Royal Ride" takes you to the top station.

From the south, the route goes over the Grimsel or Susten Pass into the region. Both passes are only open in summer. Alternatively, you can take the Simplon Pass and then Lötschberg car transport.

Wengen is car-free and can be reached by cogwheel railway from Lauterbrunnen or on foot. The car can be parked in the Lauterbrunnen multi-storey car park.


The covered multi-storey car park in Lauterbrunnen is located at the entrance to the village near the railway station and offers direct access to the cable cars to Wengen.

Grindelwald has public car parks with covered parking spaces: Eiger+ car park (252 parking spaces) and Sportzentrum car park (160 parking spaces). They cannot be reserved in advance. Uncovered parking spaces are available everywhere in the village.
