Cabelways and hiking map

By the way: the valley station is only a few steps away from our hotel!
Wengernalp - Biglenalp - Eigergletscher
Just above Wengernalp railway station, a wide forest road branches off right to two large alp huts on Wengernalp. The trail then heads south over wide flower-filled meadows to Wixi. After circumventing a striking rocky outcrop, it leads through a small forest of fragrant Swiss stone pine to Biglenalp From here, at the the foot of the Jungfrau, it continues to Loucherlicka. Climbing up under the vertical cliffs of the Loucherfluh, the trail winds left to the steep upper pastures of Alp Wixi. Flowers and barren glacier moraine; The hike though a fabulous world of flowers now turns onto the karst moraine of the Eiger glacier. As you hike up the moraine, your Eigergletscher destination is within reach. You'll immediately be captivated by the high-alpine surroundings, with stunning views of the rock and ice masses of the Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau seeming almost close enough to touch.
The Lauberhorn Ski Race is the longest and most demanding downhill event in the Ski World Cup. In summer you can actually experience the key points on the racing piste. The Lauberhorn Trail leads to spectacular passages including the Hundschopf and Wasserstation. Twelve information panels along the trail give interesting facts on the route of the race. The route is also lined with photo-viewers, similar to telescopes aimed at mountain summits, which show the exact route of the race. Start at Kleine Scheidegg: At Kleine Scheidegg railway station you cross the railway tracks and head towards Männlichen. After a few steps you branch off to the left on the mountain trail to Lauberhorn for a gentle but steady climb. At the top station of the Wengernalp/Wixi-Lauberhorn chairlift (open in winter), is a signpost for the Lauberhornschulter (shoulder) and the start of the Lauberhorn Trail. At first this narrow downhill path over mountain pastures more or less follows the route of the Wixi chairlift before bending to the west after 300 metres. In front of you is a small man-made lake which supplies water to make artificial snow for the pistes in late autumn. Key points in the summer: The Lauberhorn Trail leads steadily downhill via Rinderhitta. The narrow bottle-neck at the Hundschopf is mastered in several bends. Just below Wengernalp railway station, you reach the tracks of the Wengernalp Railway and follow these in the direction of Wengen. At the benches above Wasserstation - where steam trains once topped up their boilers - the trail turns to the left, crosses under the railway tracks and continues via Wickibort to Hannegg, where it leaves the actual race piste. You then hike gently downhill through peaceful mountain forest on the Wengen-Wengernalp alp road to Allmend, a station of the Wengernalp Railway.
Wengen - Wengernalp - Kleine Scheidegg
A classic pass trail following the contours of the landscape. A must for all visitors to the Jungfrau Region. The good, sometimes steep trail with high-alpine charm leads along the terrace at the foot of the Männlichen chain, up through woods and alp pastures via Allmend to Wengernalp. The views of the mighty rock walls of the Lauterbrunnen Valley and down into the untouched Trümmelbach Valley are spectacular. The trail continues around the slopes of the Lauberhorn (where in January ski aces compete in the legendary Lauberhorn Downhill) and on to Kleine Scheidegg. The world's most famous silhouettes: On this hike you have the fantastic Bernese Oberland mountain world at your feet, with the world-famous silhouettes of the Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau taking the starring role. A little patience is required here however as the incredible panorama of the three giants first opens up between Wengernalp and Kleine Scheidegg. On the first part of the hike, the glittering summit of the Silberhorn catches your eye as a forerunner of the big three.
The Lauberhorn Crazy Golf is more than just Minigolf. The 18-hole-Minigolf course tells different stories about the Lauberhorn Downhill Race. Play the Kernen-S or the Austrian hole as well as throwing the ball out of the snow cannon. It is fun for the whole family!

Cycling is more than just a sport – cycling is a way of life
The signposted network of hiking trails in the Jungfrau region spans around
800 kilometres, some of which are also mountain-bike routes. Use of the
network for one single form of mobility, such as hiking, is not a viable
approach. As such, mountain biking is also allowed on hiking routes,
provided that no restrictions are in place.
The Jungfrau region as a cycling arena
No pain, no gain: go mountain biking on the Jungfrau region’s 460
kilometres of mountain-bike trails. Typically idyllic Swiss mountain scenery
unfurls as you go, with meadows full of flowers, clear lakes and a
sensational view of the snow-capped peaks of the Bernese Alps. Cool off at
one of the mighty ravines or at one of the many waterfalls on hot summer

alternative options, such as the winter hiking and sledging routes or the
mountain lodge with its glorious views. You can get to the Männlichen on
the gondola lift from Grindelwald or on the Lauterbrunnen-Wengen cable
car. You are guaranteed to see spectacular views of the majestic
mountains, regardless of which route you take.

World Natural Heritage Site with the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau plus more
than 200 other peaks in the Piz Gloria, the world’s first revolving mountaintop restaurant. In good conditions, visitors can see as far as the
Mont Blanc massif and the Black Forest.
The Piz Gloria revolving restaurant
At the 360° restaurant, diners enjoy a delicious lunch, for instance the 007
burger, while the stunning mountain scenery silently glides past them. The
revolving restaurant takes 45 minutes to do one complete turn, while the
entire alpine massif is showcased as a spectacle of nature.
Bond World 007
Visit the interactive BOND WORLD 007 exhibition based on the “On Her
Majesty's Secret Service” Bond film starring George Lazenby. On the tour,
visitors can immerse themselves in the film, discover details about how it
was filmed, see its original screenplay and put their own Bond skills to the
test. All of the key scenes are featured in the exhibit, from Bond skilfully
tossing his hat in Miss Moneypenny’s office to the hair-raising bobsleigh
chase. You can also create your own personal BOND moments in the
helicopter simulator in the original chassis of a decommissioned Air Glaciers
Alouette III that flew to the Schilthorn on its very last flight.
007 Walk of fame
Agent James Bond 007 has once again left a mark on the Schilthorn. The
world’s first 007 Walk of fame pays tribute to the actors and contributors
involved in “On Her Majesty's Secret Service”. Other stars from the world of James Bond 007 are also featured on the Schilthorn. Each character is
visually immortalised on the information board with a photo, signature, a
handprint in steel and a personal message. The boards on the summit of the Schilthorn form the 007 WALK OF FAME, a sensational walk which bears
witness to the legendary James Bond film.
