The North Face Trail is a awesome and relatively easy hiking trail. We took the Allmendhubel Bahn from Murren to start our hike along the North Face Trail. We hiked from Allmendhubel - Murren and later on also decided to hike from Gimmelwald-Stechelberg - Lauterbrunnen. It was one of the best hiking experiences we've ever had. The views are simply... 更多
Definitely leave at least half a day for this hike, if not an entire day. Take your time and enjoy the intense beauty around you. The trails are well marked, but I would suggest looking up which hike you are doing online first so that you know which signs to follow. The culture in the area is that you are... 更多
My husband and I followed the mountain bike trail from Murren to catch the Northface Trail as it was raining (hard) and we wanted to stay on a hard or gravel surface to avoid mud and slippery terrain. Despite the weather, this was still an enjoyable and beautiful hike. We wanted to avoid the fornicular so we turned around at... 更多
In June 2016 My husband and I took the North Face Trail from Murren. The funicular took us up to Allmendhubel to the beginning of the trail. It is the most amazing hike; our most favorite one in Switzerland. We had a spectacular day. We walked thru fields of wildflowers, cow pastures, streams, small farms and even woods--all with the... 更多
I hiked the North Face trail on a cloudy day. Even though I couldn't see the mountains across the valley (Whose supposed presence was constantly mentioned by the plaques on the trail frequently...), I still enjoyed it because of the rich flower beds. There were just so many alpine blossoms! Other high points of these hikes include an adventurous crossing... 更多
This trail has everything...great views of the Eiger, Monch, Jungfrau, and Breithorn mountains, classic pastoral Swiss scenery, alpine flowers, and one on one access to grazing Swiss cows! A classic and very memorable Swiss Alpine hike!
Take the very steep Allmendhubel funicular from Murren -- and reach high Alpine meadows in a matter of minutes. From the station/restaurant at the top, take the main trail to the left and follow well-marked signs to the North Face Trail. In the summer months, you'll see many cows grazing in the high meadows and many huts for making cheese... 更多
My husband, an avid hiker for over 50 years, rates this #1. We never witnessed anything more beautiful. And in the middle of summer, we only saw a handful of people. It was surreal.
This hike can be done from Murren-Allmendhubel or vice versa. We did it from Allmendhubel and recommend this since more the views closer to Murren along the pine trees is more underwhelming and not as well marked. On a good day the views will take your breath away and trail has enough variety to keep things interesting. At about the... 更多
This hike is great for families and, together with the cable car from Lauterbrunnen, scenic journey on the train to Murren and funicular to Allmendhubel it offers lots of variety and a 'short day' excursion for anyone who is reasonably agile, has a pair of walking boots and a desire to see some of the Alps most majestic mountains in... 更多
