The descent from Mt. Männlichen to Wengen passing by Kleine Scheidegg offers some unparalleled views of the mountain triumvirate: Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. The second part of the hike follows the downhill run of the Lauberhorn, one of the world's steepest downhill ski runs. Good thing it is summer and no one is in a rush!

    Hello, We are interested in the Mannlichen-Kleine Scheidegg trail and we will be doing it in late May (May 28-30). Will the trail be open by then? Thank you!

    Hello from Wengen, Thank you for your interest. We normally still have snow on the mountains in April. For security reasons this trail will be therefore closed. I would recommend that you take the train up to Kleine Scheidegg, then walking down to Kleine Scheidegg. Depending on the weather and snow-condition you can extend your hike to beautiful trails. I hope to see you in Wengen soon. Best regards from the Tourist Center of Wengen
