    What a fun day! Children looked like kids running up and down to find the next stop of the route map! At the beginning they give them a cookie with a cow and the map of the route, they must go by the proposed activities (playing cowbells, playing the alphorn, milk a "cow", diving length, etc) and mark the map at each stop. At the end of the road give them a detail by having it finished. If the children are not accustomed to hiking is ideal, because with so many activities are fun and the way it makes them super enjoyable. Ahh, above all please note at the top in Maennlichenn there is a super playground with a giant cow q has a water slide and many more activities, thus you can not start the route until q children have tried everything! Will not want to leave! Jajajajaja for us was a great, highly recommended plan with children!

    60 CHF and to männlichen cable car station can drive the 2225 m and back again. Above results in an easy and quick way to the 100 metres higher male Summit. The panorama with views of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau worth incidents on sunny days. Following walks to Kleine Scheidegg or then downhill to Grindelwald worthwhile reason anyway, but here are the Flip-Flops that carry many of the pure train riders also over 2000 meters, completely out of place. This is alpine terrain and a minimum of appropriate equipment and condition is still required for all commercialization of Berginfrastrukur.

Where to stay in Grindelwald

In the resort town of Grindelwald, the main street is dotted with mid-range hotels where you can rest after a long day of skiing and shopping. For ease of convenience, opt to stay closer to the city's one train station. Wander a bit off the main road to find a handful of hostels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts--though be warned that their rates are similar to the hotels in town. If you feel so inclined, indulge at one of the upscale hotels for a luxurious stay in this glacier town.
