Posts about Männlichen

Männlichen is a 2,343 metre-high mountain in the Bernese Alps, which can be reached from the west via Lauterbrunnen and from the east via Grindelwald. The mountain restaurant and hotel is located on a relatively flat ridge, alongside which are the starting points for several hiking paths in the summer and many ski runs in winter. The ridge and peak are wonderful viewing points for the spectacular surrouding scenery, including the Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen valleys, and the famous three peaks of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.

The cablecar from Grindelwald – which takes around 30 minutes to reach the mountain-top from the valley floor – is the longest in the world. The same distance can be covered in around four hours on foot (ascent) or much more quickly on skis or by sledge (descent).
