Firstly I want to say that the Bernese Oberland region is a heavenly spot on this planet!! I have spent endless hours researching huts and trails!!! In June 2019, I spent 10 spectacular days there. We did not go directly hut-to-hut, but we slept in two wonderful huts. We had planned to go back in June 2020, but due to CoVid, our trip was cancelled. Keeping my fingers crossed that 2022 will work out! Here are some ideas:
Starting in Mürren, you can hike up to the beautiful rustic Rotstock Hut. The views going there are breathtaking. So you could sleep there one night. From the Rotstock, you could hike up over the ‘Sefinenfurgge’. Unfortunately we were not able to do this (in 2019) as the trail was still closed due to snow. I have read so much about this hike, and it seems awesome. It is rated as quite difficult, but you seem to both be experienced hikers. Your ‘destination’ could be the Gspalthorn hut. I have never been there, but had made plans to go in 2020 (as I mentionned earlier, had to cancel due to CoVid.) We were to go in June again, so we had planned to hike up from Griesalp.If you google the Gspalthorn hut, you will see proposed hikes to other huts. Keep in mind that at this point you are in a completely different valley, that is, not where Wengen is.
Going back to the Wengen area, a beautiful little hut where we slept is the Lobhorn Hut. You can either hike there or take a bus from Lauterbrunnen to Isenfluh, followed by a quaint old gondola up to Sulwald. From there it is a short hike to the hut.
Another area of hiking with spectacular views is by the Schynige Platte. You take a charming cogwheel from Wilderswil in order to start hiking. There are more tourists here. We did not have time to do the entire trail, but you may want to look into going as far as First, and to the Manndlenenen Hut.
Finally, a spectacular hike is from Stechelberg or Mürren (different trail options) up to the Hotel Obersteinberg. Don’t worry, the name hotel is misleading. It is a charming place with no electricity, chickens and a few cows near by, and the most magnificent views you can imagine. They have a few beds (we did not stay there, but had a hearty sausage soup lunch!). From there you can continue up to the Oberhorn See (See is lake in German). We wanted to come back ‘down’ via a trail going by a hut (no service hut) called the Schmadri hut. Apparently it is a beautiful little place, but once again, there was too much snow when we were there.
As you are preparing your wonderful trip, you will see that there are endless useful links!! Have fun planning, and wishing you a fabulous trip!! And congratulations on your wedding! I am still happily married after 37 years!!
