Many ordinary trails have hotels at the end of them, or along the way. Or, a town or village may be close to a mountain trail. So, you do not have to do hut -to -hut hiking or take the special trails, such as the Via Alpina, although parts of some may work well.
Just as an example, you can walk from Männlichen to Kleine Scheidegg ( 2 or 3 hours) and sleep there. Or, continue on to Wengen- several more hours - and sleep there. Nice trails, good accommodation. Or, continue to Alpiglen and stay at the mountain guest house there.
