Need advice. I was thinking of goin up Schilthorn mountain on 30th Dec 2019. Only to realise that the cable car will not be operating from 11th Nov 2019 till 6th Dec 2019. Does it mean that there is no other way of going up other then trekking(if any) because we got 2 young kids in tow. TIA.
So what is the problem?
Or, did you mean November 30th?
Trekking probably won't work, because the trails are likely to be blocked by snow.
Hi Slowpoke, My bad.... yes... 30th Nov '19.
And, even f the trails are open, it is a bit of a climb:

From 1638 to 2970 meters
I was up Schilthorn yesterday and can’t imagine hiking up unless you are young and in incredible shape or are Swiss.
I am none of the above.... so looks like i'm gonna skip it..... kinda disappointing when you bought the Swiss Travel Pass.... and some of the attractions will be closing for maintenance. Lucky you... for having the opportunity to go up
you can still go to Murren (www.myswissalps.com/mu rren), it is a nice car-free village and has beautiful panoramic views. Also you can use all of the trains in the region (like to Jungfraujoch (www.myswissalps.com/ju ngfraujoch)).
Probably it will be already nice Christmas markets in the area, so you will have nice experiences for sure.
Do not worry, you will have lots of opportunities to use your Swiss Travel Pass in the region (www.myswissalps.com/ju ngfrauregion/activitie s) :)
Hi , IIdiko Thanks for the inputs..... will do. We love Christmas markets.... very much!
