MySwitzerland planned a hike.
September 25, 2019
After a delicious breakfast you start on the second day from Wengen from the southwest. The Via Alpina leads you down into the Lauterbrunnen Valley, on the way you will be rewarded with spectacular views of steep cliffs and rushing waterfalls. From Lauterbrunnen it goes back up again: the path winds alternately through colorful alpine meadows and quiet forest. Where in winter skiers waggle over the slopes, you can now enjoy the beautiful landscape.The quaint town of Mürren with its wooden houses and fine cafes is ideal for a rest. About Spielbodenalp it goes on to Rotstockhütte. The stone hut with the red shutters can be seen from afar and because of the delicious dishes a popular hiking destination.On the way to Griesalp you cross the mountain pass Sefinenfurgge. Here the alpine meadows turn into a boulder field. The path is secured in some places by ropes and the descent you master over a wooden staircase. The panorama from the 2,612 meter high summit is unique. The last six kilometers you follow a curved path down to Griesalp, your stage destination.
