Tour description

Männlichen has two completely different faces. From the Grindelwald valley, the mountain appears as a gentle, green slope. When seen from the Lauterbrunnen side, the Männlichen appears very different. Here barren grassy slopes and craggy rock formations fall steeply away to the valley. The views from the long mountain ridge are impressive and rich in contrast. The pleasant hike to Kleine Scheidegg passes through a wide, well-developed hiking trail and usually follows a gentle descent.


Variant A: The actual Männlichen summit is above the summit stations of the two aerial cableways and reached by a good, though steep mountain trail. Additional hiking time: 40 minutes.


A short but rather exposed passage on the Tschuggen flank is secured by a guard rail.
Normal hiking gear.
End of May to mid-October.
