At an average altitude of 1,900 metres above sea level, the trail crosses through the attractive «Romantikweg» on the southern section of the Grindelwald valley basin. It leads through an enchanting landscape away from all hustle and bustle, over pastures and meadows of wild anemones, globeflowers, gentian, Alpine roses and cotton grass. Listen carefully and you may hear the whistle of marmots and the wind rustling in the grass. A true taste of nature: From the picturesque alp buildings on Alpiglen, the unsurfaced trail leads along outcrops of the Eiger up to Alp Bustiglen. On the pleasantly undulating section to Alp Gummi, the tangy fragrance of the sparse Swiss stone pine forest is an agreeable change to the sweet perfume of alpine flowers. The trail continues gently over rugged and romantic mountain pastures and scree, eye to eye with the imposing Eiger North Wall up towards Teufenschlucht and Kleine Scheidegg. Here the narrow path branches into the main route to the southernmost point of the Männlichen plateau at 2,230 m above sea level.
