The first part of the climb is challenging. The asphalted road climbs steeply after the Schiltgrat chairlift. As soon as the ascent becomes flatter, ground changes. The gravel road leads past Schiltalp, where, during the alpine season (summer), you can buy delicious local cheeses. On the Höhenweg, it is worth stopping for a photo and taking in the views of the Bernese Alps which are simply magnificent. After the Höhenweg, there is the short and partly challenging single trail to Suppenalp. From there, the wide alpine road leads back to the village.

By car: There are different ways to reach the region by car. The fastest way from Basel and Geneva is via Berne. The fastest route from Zurich is through Lucerne and the Brünig Pass. The pass is open in summer and winter.
From the south, the route leads over the Grimsel or Susten Pass into the region. Both passes are only open in summer. Alternatively, you can take the route via Simplon Pass and then use Lötschberg car transport.
In Lauterbrunnen, there is a covered car park, linked with the BLM cable car station. You may also drive to the Schilthornbahn station in Stechelberg where you will find a large number of parking spaces.
The Lauterbrunnen car park is located at the outskirts of the village, just before the train station. Parking spaces can be reserved for a minimum of 5 days (winter) online.
Thanks to its central location in Europe, Switzerland is served by international trains from over 12 countries. Within Switzerland, Intercity trains run directly from Basel and Lucerne to the Jungfrau Region. Travellers from Zurich have to change in Berne. The trains run every half hour.
