“An above tree line hike with views that can't easily be beaten.”— Tom Robson
Due to its easy nature, this hike can get very crowded, especially in summer months.
Once you've reached the Männlichen, absorb the unforgettable views. To the west (and down) you'll see Wengen and Lauterbrunnen. To the south, you'll see the Eiger, Munch, and Jungfrau towering above all else - a sight to behold. On a clear day, you might even be able to see all the way to Interlaken and its two lakes!
Follow the well-signed path to the bizarre "crown" on the ridge, and simply enjoy the views!
