Hint

Intro

The contrast between tranquil forests and craggy ice and rock formations in the Rosenlaui Valley has captivated artists from all around the world for more than 200 years. Visitors can still enjoy this wildly romantic landscape today – on a hike from the Grosse Scheidegg to the Schwarzwaldalp, for example.

Description

Hiking boots laced up and rucksack packed with a yummy picnic, the wildly romantic hike up the Grosse Scheidegg can begin. From here, hikers are rewarded with glorious views of the famous Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains. The trail then passes fragrant alpine roses and the climbing rocks of the Engelhörner mountain, and continues on to the Hornseeli. This lake lies above the Rosenlaui Valley, or the Reichenbach Valley to give it its proper name, and is the perfect spot for a little break. From here, it is all downhill past alpine meadows and chalets to reach the Schwarzwaldalp, where the hike ends. Those who have the time can visit the old Schwarzwaldalp sawmill or the impressive Rosenlaui glacier gorge.
