Tour description

From Wengen railway station you follow the tracks of the Wengernalp Railway uphill, crossing under them after about 300 m. The route continues along a surfaced road through the southern part of the village, soon passing mountain meadows and pretty chalets on the way up to Allmend. The effort of the uphill hike is richly rewarded by the majestic view of the Jungfrau. Crossing under the cables of the Innerwengen chairlift, you reach the forest and continue on a gentle ascent to Hanegg. Now you have a view of the Jungfrau massif, of its principal spur, the Schwarzmönch, as well as the village of Mürren sitting above a massive cliff on the opposite side of the valley. Idyllic natural landscape; An easy uphill section takes you to Mettlenalp. The trail now continues almost level for around 1.5 km. The views are overwhelming: many waterfalls plunge into the depths from the rugged cliffs on the flank of the Jungfrau. Above them tower the mighty ice masses of the Giessen, Guggi and Eiger Glaciers. A sometimes narrow but scenic path with no difficult passages leads to tranquil Biglenalp, from where a rather steep trail over flower-filled meadows leads to Wengernalp.


Mostly wide, moderately steep gravelled trail. No exposed passages.
Normal hiking gear, hiking boots with good soles.
End of May to mid-October.
