Short, but promising winter hike to the family-friendly Allmendhubel.
The trail starts in the quiet alpine village of Mürren and winds uphill towards Sonnenberg. Passing traditional chalets, you climb steadily towards the peaks. It’s worth taking the occasional break to enjoy the mountain panorama with the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. After the first stage, you reach the Pension Sonnenberg which has a wonderful terrace for a bite to eat. Reenergised, you can now tackle the final ascent up to the Allmendhubel. The Allmendhubel is a great place for families with its playground, terrace and restaurant.
From the Allmendhubel, a sledging run goes to Mürren. But you can also take the Allmendhubel funicular railway down the mountain to Mürren.
After a snowfall, the ground can be softer and more difficult to walk on.
Car: There are different ways to reach the region by car. The fastest way from Basel and Geneva is via Berne. The fastest route from Zurich is through Lucerne and the Brünig Pass. The pass is open in summer and winter.
From the south, the route goes over the Grimsel or Susten Pass into the region. Both passes are only open in summer. Alternatively, you can take the Simplon Pass and then Lötschberg car transport.
