best season

Short, but promising winter hike to the family-friendly Allmendhubel.

The trail starts in the quiet alpine village of Mürren and winds uphill towards Sonnenberg. Passing traditional chalets, you climb steadily towards the peaks. It’s worth taking the occasional break to enjoy the mountain panorama with the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. After the first stage, you reach the Pension Sonnenberg which has a wonderful terrace for a bite to eat. Reenergised, you can now tackle the final ascent up to the Allmendhubel. The Allmendhubel is a great place for families with its playground, terrace and restaurant.
