Hello:
I plan to be in Lauterbrunnen for 2 full days this September. This will be my first time in Switzerland. I would like to hike each day and here are some of the following hikes that I have read about:
1. Kleine Scheidegg- Mannlichen combined with trip to Jungfraujoch

2. Hiker's loop from Lauterbrunnen (up to Grutschalp, walk to Murren, North Face trail to Gimmewald, back to Lauterbrunnen)

3. Schynige Platte to First

4. Sefinen Valley to Kilchbalm

5. open to any other suggestions

I am traveling very light (only one bag) so I will not be packing any hiking boots, but will take a pair of trail-type shoes.

Also, any thoughts on purchasing/reading a book on the various hikes in the area. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Joe.

In the event that you have yet to reserve accomodations, I can strongly the Hotel Staubach. I have stayed there on three separate occasions and have never been disappointed in any aspect of my
stay.

I can also recommend the hike (downhill) from Mannlichen to Kleine Scheidegg - also the hike (uphill) from Mannlichen to Mannlichen Gipfel.

Take the post bus from Lauterbrunnen to Isenfluh and then the gondola to Suwald (riding the tricycles back down would, I imagine, be a kick).

Hike from Lauterbrunnen up to (and behind) Staubach Wasserfall.

Hi Joe,

I wouldn't recommend to do the more difficult hikes such as Schynige Platte to First without hiking boots. More practical tips are listed here and some trail suggestions are listed here.
