Special comments: Attractive Faulhorn – Grindelwald/First day hike
This is a must do trip for panoramic views. However-- if you are wanting to hike with small children under 10 it isn,t a good choice. The paths are narrow , rocky , slippery in spots so walking and enjoying the view are impossible. Hopefully the paths will be improved in the future because the views are the best in the area.
