How to get there

Allmenalp is to be reached by a cable car, leaving just outside the village of Kandersteg. The cable car valley station can be reached by car or by a 15 minute walk from Kandersteg's railway station.

Route details

Follow the signs indicating the shorter route to Usser Üschene. When the path splits up, take the path on the left towards Usser Üschene and keep following this direction. At Usser Üschene, there is a shortcut to Kandersteg; don’t turn into this road and keep walking straight ahead in the direction of Inner Ueschinen.

At the point where a path turns right towards Adelboden, you will turn into the left path that gradually descends, almost in the direction you came from. This path runs to Eggeschwand. Keep following this direction. From Rüeggerscher, follow the signs to Kandersteg and then walk to the gondola station of Eggeschwand. This gondola runs up to Sunnbüel.

Approximately 50 m (160 ft) after the station, turn right to Kandersteg. The path runs along railway tracks, enters the forest a bit further on and then crosses the Lötschberg tunnel's entrance. The path bends to the left and continues across a camp site.

At the end of the camp site and of the path, turn left under the railway to Käsmilchbrücke. Then turn right into the Wagetiweg (crossing the river) in the direction of Kandersteg/Allmenalp. Keep following the direction of Kandersteg through the path running along the river Kander. At the end of the path, turn left to Luftseilbahn Allmenalp or right to Kandersteg railway station.
