Hello everyone

I will be staying in Valley Hostel in Lauterbrunnen from June 16 to June 20. I am interested in doing some day hikes (one or two), like the hike to Murren and Gimmelwald. I can do easy to moderate hikes. I am looking to join/make plans with anyone who is also interested in doing similar hikes. I am open to ideas and would love to share the amazing experience of hiking around in the area with other people.

I apologize if this is not the right place for such a post, and would appreciate if someone can point me in the right direction for finding company for the day hikes.

Sorry I can't be there to join you.

Here are some ideas for hikes.

Not all will be open in late June due to snow. Check date of the update at the bottom of the page.

Thanks for the quick response!

I am planning to do one of the hikes connecting to Kleine Scheidegg, and then continue via train to Jungfraujoch. I am expecting temperatures of around ZERO C. I read in another post on the forum that some trails could be closed due to snow. How much snow can I expect on the trails that are open? I am packing a pair of solid reebok shoes (NOT boots), woolens and rain-wind-proof jacket. Would that be sufficient? I am not new to snow, but it would be pity if I have to miss some beautiful hike due to lack of equipment.

When you go, the most trails, and especially the higher trails will be wet.

Reeboks are not waterproof, as far as I know.... Wet + cold is a problem.

Zero degrees Celsius is certainly possible, especially at night

Hi lokeshjindal,

Hiking from Wengen or Männlichen to Kleine Scheidegg might be possible around that time. Please find details here: myswissalps.com/ jungfrauregion/ activities.

i too stayed at Valley Hostel back in February 2016..

great hostel.. very quiet and friendly hosts...

i was only 1 of 3 guest at the time so i felt like it was my own house...

check out the review here


for hikes

i did from lauterbrunnen station to Grutschalp.. its a gondola that takes you up.. i believe its 6 CHF

from Grutschalp, you can train to Murren or hike..

i did both.. the hike from Grutschalp to Murren was beautiful and peaceful... some uphill but mostly flat.. past through Winterregg and to Murren...

you can also hike from Murren to Gimmelwald which i did as well.. all downhill and turns...

Murren is bigger town with shops restaurants, hostels..

Gimmelwald is small but beautiful with a pensione and hostel with limited food options..

both are great hikes..

it took about 3-4 hours to complete

(pics are of hike from Grutschalp to Murren)
