Hi all

I want to hike this path with the family and wanted to know whether its easier walking from Männlichen to Kleine Scheidegg or in reverse?

Is the hiking path gravelled and sign posted and is there any steep sections?

Is there any fee to pay to use this path?

Thank you

Hello AMerchant,

Which way you walk it doesn't really make a difference.

Direction Männlichen to Kleine Scheidegg is downhill therefor easier. In this direction you are facing the stunning view. It is a wide easy path and you cannot get lost!

Direction Kleine Scheidegg to Männlichen is uphill therefore not as easy. In this direction the view is at your back.

In my opinion, it does definitely make a difference which direction you walk from. The walk from Mannlichen to Kleine Scheidegg is much better because the alps are directly in front of you as you walk. If it's the other way, you have to keep looking behind you most of the time if you want to enjoy the view of the alps.

It is a beautiful scenic walk with some gravel but definitely manageable. Just wear good shoes and if you are over 65yrs old, perhaps a hiking stick will be a asset but it's a very doable walk and highly recommended in good weather.

We stopped at Cafe Grindelwald Blick for a sausage and rosti, beer and ice tea, apple strudel. Then we continued another 15mins down to the station. If you want to get a seat in the train on the way back, try to queue at least 15mins beforehand if its the peak season.
