“A high alpine hike with sweeping views.”— Nick Wilder
Family Friendly This is a reasonable introduction to the high alpine for children made easy with lots of lift riding.
This area is extremely high and the weather can be MUCH worse than elsewhere in the region. Clouds seem to stick to these peaks more than others, and, of course, it's much colder at this elevation.
Important: pay attention to the last gondola down - it's a LONG way if you miss it!
Arrive at the lake and enjoy the views.
Along with trails around Kleine Scheidegg (such as the Eiger Trail), this is probably the easiest way to get to the high alpine and have a chance to hike around.
