Enjoy the Jungfrau region with its endless options of hikes ranging from easy, rather flat valley walks or panoramic trails to challenging uphill hikes to reach tops like First or Schilthorn by foot.

Combine the valley with a simple hike which takes you about 1.5 hours from Gruetschalp to Muerren and you can take in the stunning views of Eiger, Moench and Jungfrau and the great landscape of the Jungfrau region.
