Wengen - Leiterhorn - Spätenalp - Burglauenen



9.45 km long
Hiking Trail

This is not a well-known, but all the more beautiful hike is the transition from the Lauterbrunnen valley to the Lütschental. From the Wengen village center, the tour begins via the Äussere Allmend in the north direction to the Leiterhorn. The path branches off just before the viewing point to the right until you reach the Spätenalp through the mountain forest. After the alpine hut, we head downhill passing the Alpwiesen, before it rises again slightly in the forest. Finally, the trail leads downhill through ditches, forest lightings, meadows and deciduous forests to Burglauenen station. From here, the Berner Oberlandbahn runs to Grindelwald or Zweilütschinen.
