Day 1 After the meeting point in Altdorf and a short transfer to Attinghausen, you will comfortably float over the first altitude level in the cabin of the cable car to the Brüsti mountain station. Over a ridge with a great view you hike to the historic Surenenpass. The rock bastions on the Brunnistock and the valley basin of the Blackenalp are impressive. A varied valley path leads to the monastery village Engelberg. (Walking time: 5.30 h, distance: 14 km, ascent/descent: 1175/750 meters).
Day 2 With the gondola, the first 800 meters in altitude are mastered in no time over the two steep steps to the spectacularly situated Trübsee at the foot of the Titlis. From here the trail leads up to the Jochpass 2207 m, which marks the border between Central Switzerland and the Bernese Oberland. You can already see the destination of today's stage, Engstlenalp. An idyllic place of energy with lake, nostalgic hotel and thousands of alpine roses. (Walking time: 3 h, distance: 7 km, ascent/descent: 500/450 meters).
Day 3 The trail leads through colorful alpine flora to Tannalp with cheese dairy, inn and lake. The ridge hike over the Balmeregghorn impresses with magnificent views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. From Planplatten over gentle alpine pastures to Bidmi and with the gondola down to Hasliberg and Meiringen. (Walking time: 5 h, distance: 16.5 km, ascent/descent: 700/1100 meters).
Day 4 You overcome the first steep step with the 120-year-old rack railroad up to the thunderous Reichenbach Falls. Under the spell of the mighty Wetterhorn, you pass the Belle Epoque Hotel Rosenlaui and the glacier gorge. Through beautiful moorland you reach Grosse Scheidegg. The post bus takes you to Grindelwald in the middle of the Jungfrau region. (Walking time: 4.50 h, distance: 12 km, ascent/descent: 1175/75 meters).
Day 5 The ascent over undulating meadows to Kleine Scheidegg is gentle, the rock and ice scenery of the Eiger north face is close and mighty. Now follows a sunny high trail to Wengen with views of the royal Jungfrau, then you descend into the Lauterbrunnen Valley with its vertical walls and spectacular waterfalls, at your choice on foot or leisurely by train. (Walking time: 6.30 h, distance: 19 km, ascent/descent: 1175/1400 meters).
Day 6 The sunny terrace of Mürren lies directly opposite the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. Over alpine pastures, panoramic terraces such as the Bryndli and rustic huts such as the Rotstockhütte, the route continues to the Sefinenfurgge, the impressive crossing into the Kiental. (Walking time: 6.30 h, distance: 16 km, ascent/descent: 1125/1350 meters).
Day 7 King stage over the 2778 m high Hohtürli! The detour to the Blümlisalphütte and the eternal glacier ice is rewarding. Over moraines it goes downhill to the deep blue, spectacular Oeschinensee, one of the most beautiful mountain lakes in the Alps, surrounded by steep rock faces. The train takes you comfortably to the Belle Epoque resort of Kandersteg. Farewell and journey home. (Walking time: 6.45 h, distance: 13.5 km, ascent/descent: 1475/1200 meters)
