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 By gondola and chairlift the first meters in altitude are mastered in no time over the two steep steps to the spectacularly situated Trübsee at the foot of the Titlis and to the Jochpass. From here, the trail leads to Engstlenalp. An idyllic place of energy with lake, nostalgic hotel and thousands of alpine roses. Through a colorful alpine flora it goes to Tannalp with cheese dairy, inn and lake. Then you follows the panoramic trail over the ridge path to the Balmeregghorn with magnificent views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. From Planplatten you float comfortably down into the valley to Meiringen (walking time: 5 h, distance: 15 km, ascent/descent: 800/770 meters).
Day 3 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 4 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 5 The sunny terrace of Mürren lies directly opposite the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.

(Walking time: 6.30 h, distance: 16 km, ascent/descent: 1125/1350 meters).
Day 6 King stage over the 2777 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)
