Hi G Witt -
My very favorite hike in the region is the favorite of many others:
The scenery is terrific, and it's easy, too. ;-)
Easy walk, (so easy that it is nicknamed "The Grannies' Walk" ),but you'll stop a lot to look, and even more if you bring a camera. So, it can be a lot slower than you might expect from the distance and the terrain. It does require a clear day, and is absolutely better to walk from Männlichen to Kleine Scheidegg. The approach to the Eiger is quite an experience. Toward the end it towers over you. If you walk uphill from KS to Männlichen,, you miss that psychological effect, and have to keep turning around to look.
If you take the cableway up from Wengen, you can turn to the left as you get off and go up to the "Gipfel" (the summit) for a scenic but strenuous short climb, before you return to undertake the main hike. Or, you can turn to the right, walk to or past the restaurant, past Tschuggen, and and onwards to Kleine Scheidegg.
A couple of the attached pictures, taken in the days of film, show just how tiny hikers are, compared to the Eiger. One shows the whole scene, the other (a crop) shows the hikers, who can just barely be discerned in the full image.
October 22nd is the last day that the Wengen-Männlichen cableway runs
until it reopens for the Winter season in mid-November ( weekends only)
and then everyday from December 9th for the ski season.
