Whether from Grindelwald on the new, ultra-modern 10-seater gondola lift or from Wengen on the open-air balcony of the aerial cableway: the journey up Männlichen alone is an experience. Once at the top, the Royal Walk takes around 25 minutes to reach the summit at 2342 metres above sea level.
In the immediate vicinity of the mountain stations is the Männlichen mountain lodge – and a playground of a special kind: the Sennenspielplatz. At its centre is an 8.5 m high cow. Its inner life lights up children's eyes. And its cow pats are actually small trampolines. Jumping in is allowed.
An adventure for the whole family is the Lieselottenweg between Männlichen and the Holenstein middle station. Here everything revolves around the famous cow Lieselotte. She originally comes from a tranquil village in Westphalia, Germany. It is her first time in the mountains – and she experiences a lot. Other interesting hikes – from the Chamois Trail to the Panorama or Romantic Trail to the Öpfelchüechli Trail – have their starting point on Männlichen.
When the first snow falls, Männlichen transforms into a first-class ski resort. A wide terrain, over 100 perfectly groomed kilometres of pistes, modern facilities and a snowmaking system that defies even a winter with little precipitation make the Kleine-Scheidegg-Männlichen ski area interesting for every snow sports enthusiast.
