Männlichen - Kleine Scheidegg | Panoramaweg



4.43 km long
Hiking Trail

Männlichen has two completely different faces. From the Grindelwald valley, the mountain appears as a gentle, green slope. When seen from the Lauterbrunnen side, the Männlichen appears very different. Here barren grassy slopes and craggy rock formations fall steeply away to the valley. The views from the long mountain ridge are impressive and rich in contrast. The pleasant hike to Kleine Scheidegg passes through a wide, well-developed hiking trail and usually follows a gentle descent.
