This is one of the most complete trails we offer. Although rather long, it rewards hikers with extraordinary views of mountain peaks and lakes, ever-green valleys with flowers blooming, but also rocky and arid terrain.


We start this hike with a 25 minutes cable car ride to the viewing point of First where you can try out the famous Cliff walk. From there, it’s a nice hike up to Lake Bachalpsee, where we have a chance to observe and hear marmots and find their burrows.


Needless to say, the lake acts as a spectacular backdrop for your pictures, with the Schreckhorn peak (4078m) dominating the landscape. You will also be able to see the Finsteraarhorn (4274m), the highest peak in the Bernese Alps. There are also many other mountains surrounding the lake: Wetterhorn (3692m), Schwarzhorn (2928m), Eiger (3970m), Reeti (2757m).


From there we start the longest uphill climb of the hike: 2,5km to Faulhorn, the oldest mountain hut in Europe. We will enjoy the beautiful panorama of mountains on one side and the two lakes that border the town of Interlaken on the other side.


From Faulhorn we make our way down to Schynige Platte, walking over easy terrain, but sometimes rocky, surrounded by majestic mountains of Eiger, Mönch (4107m) and Jungfrau (4158m). We hike above Lake Brienz and admire its beautiful turquoise waters, before our final arrival at Schynige Platte. From here, we take the old train to Wilderswill to go back to Grindelwald.
