Faulhorn, Grindelwald

Hike to the rounded peak of Faulhorn and admire the rugged scenery of the snowcapped Bernese Alps. Several trails wind their way to the 2,681 m (8,796 ft) summit. At the top, take in sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and Lake Thurne below. Stop in the well-known hotel at the summit, where you can reward yourself with a fortifying meal. The ascent requires a decent level of fitness, but the well-preserved trail won't present any great challenge to experienced hikers.

  • A dust of snow was covered the trails, but it was still easy to walk without crampons. Bring hiking sticks with you. It is absolutely worth it to check! One of the best Switzerland trails you can experience and also it is not too demanding by novices as well. Those pics were taken on 17. Sept 2017. Have a pleasant trip!
  • It takes some time to reach it, but the way to the Faulhorn and the Faulhorn itself offer spectacular views. Absolutely worth the effort!
  • Classics in the Oberland mountain hiking tours.
