Description

This easy hike through the Lütschinen Valley begins at Zweilütschinen station. First you cross the tracks and go past the workshops on the left over the small bridge, where you can see where the black and white Lütschinen come together. There is a wide gravel path here that leads to the top of the village of Zweilütschinen. You walk past the manicured old Bernese Oberland houses and village fountains. Before the Gasthof Zur Linde, the trail turns right into the underpass. To the left, high above the valley, tower the Schynige Platte, the Bire and the Burg in die Himmel (Castle in the Sky). These belong to the Gündlischwand community as well as the village of Zweilütschinen. The trail first leads with slight ups and downs to the St. Petronell trail to the Säumer Taverne, where mule drivers used to stop. You then arrive at the narrow paved road to Gündlischwand. From time to time, a rooster crows early in the morning and the mighty Wetterhorn sits enthroned before you in the morning sun. The bicycle and hiking trail ascends up the old road for a short time and after about 40 minutes you reach Burglauenen railway station where you cross the tracks and the road. Please note: unsupervised crossing. For another hour, follow the trail on the edge of the forest close to the Lütschine along to Schwendi. From here, the walk is on a paved road a little above the river past Boden to Grindelwald Grund, where Wengernalp Railway travels to Grindelwald or Kleine Scheidegg.
