Hi

I am currently in Switzerland and just had a glorious day up in Jungfrau. Tomorrow it's Schilthorn.

Can anyone tell me if there is any winter hiking that can be done up there? Is there anything else to look out for whilst up in Schilthorn.

Many thanks

Les

Hi Les,

Our Schilthorn page explains about what to expect. There is no winter hiking. The Schilthorn is very steep and even in summer it's a challenge to hike up or down from there. In winter it is impossible.

Have a wonderful day up there!

Thanks Arno. Weather has not been to bad since we arrived on Saturday. Only one day of rain (yesterday) but that did not deter us from doing a cruise on Lake Thun. Our apartment lies along the front of the lake in Darligen.

If you can make the early lift up to Schilthorn and weather is great consider the Brunch that is offered at Piz Gloria---when there we took Lauterbrunnen lift up to Grutschalp train to Murren walk 5-10 minutes to Schilthorn cable car changing @Birg continuing on to Pia Gloria ------ I think we left Murren up to Pia Gloria at 0820-------Brunch was very good -we spent 3 hours eating and enjoying the views------------At Birg there may be a glass cliff walk you can do --was not open yet when we were there ---open in winter??? At Pia Gloria the revolving restaurant building has a small 007 James Bond Museum Have a Great time !

It's not better, it's different. I'd recommend only way up and the other down so you so both routes. Going up via Stechelberg is slightly more spectacular I think.
