In Wengen you cross the centre of the village by following the Dorfstrasse. Just before the church, branch off down the slope to reach the road again, take the steep, stepped path and finally gain height again on a shady, gently uphill forest road. The route leads out of the valley in several wide bends on the flanks of the Männlichen towards Allmend. The view of the extended, deep trough of the Lauterbrunnen Valley is magnificent. The scene is dominated by the majestic Jungfrau massif. Its striking pre-summit, the snow-covered Silberhorn, is a unique eye-catcher. Männlichen - the mountain with marvellous views: You hike over fragrant Alpine meadows and through a shady mountain forest until you branch off at Parawengi. From here, a steep trail up the mountain slope leads to the Männlichen plateau at 2230 metres above sea level. The views from the long mountain ridge are impressive and rich in contrast. With the Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau constantly in sight, on one side views extend down to Grindelwald's wide valley floor, bordered to the east by the rock bastions of the Wetterhorn and Mättenberg. On the other, the views deep down into the Lauterbrunnen valley are spectacular. In the distance Lake Thun, the Niederhorn and the Schrattenfluh can be seen.
