My wife and I are planning a two-week stay in Spiez in September. Spiez will be our hub and plant to do all our traveling by trail and boat. We love to hike and we're pulling our itinerary together. The one issue I know we will facing, and hoping it's not a major impediment, is that my wife is deathly afraid of cable cars. We were wondering if there are any publications that lists easy to moderate trails we can hike up and down and do not require cable car access.

Thank you

There are a lot of trails in the Jungfrau region accessible by train or bus not requiring a cable car ride. Namely the Eiger trail, Kleine Scheidegg to Wengernalp or Wengen, KS to Grindelwald, Grosse Scheidegg to First and return to GS, Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg, Schynige Platte Panoramaweg loop, Waldspitz to Bussalp.

Hi GFA2020,

you'll find the route descriptions here:

These can be useful for you too: www.myswissalps.com/hiking, you can filter the Jungfrau region.

If you go to Zermatt (www.myswissalps.com/zermatt) you go up to Gornergrat (www.myswissalps.com/gornergrat) and have lovely walks from there too: www.myswissalps.com/hiking/rotenboden-riffelalp/route.

You might find this document of some use for getting around the Jungfrau Region. Some links in the document will be out of date but the general principles are valuable.
