“A family-friendly route with spectacular alpine views, starting from the charming village of Wengen.”— Jennifer Robson
Family Friendly The kids will love the cable car ride as well as the abundant mountain views.
Lunch with a spectacular view can be had at the restaurant at Wengeralp, on the train line from Wengen to Kleine Scheidegg. Cash only, and not cheap. During ski season, it's best to book ahead if you want to be seated on the outdoor terrace. On a sunny day, it can't be beaten. Guests are provided with sheepskins and blankets. A less expensive, but very fun option is lunch outdoors at the station (Bahnhof) cafe at Kleine Scheidegg, where they take credit cards. Reservations are also taken there for large parties; local hotels are good about calling to make reservations for you.
It's best to stop in the Tourism office in Wengen (located at the base of the Mnnlichen cable car) to pick up a map of the trail and to enquire about conditions.
Expect to share the trail occasionally with sledders, and to cross ski slopes at several points. Skiers seem to be aware that you can't move out of their way very fast, but it's these areas, in particular, where poles & yak tracks come in handy.
Once you've reached Kleine Scheidegg you have several options to either continue hiking, or to take the train in any cardinal direction, depending on your final destination!
