The hike up was nice. decent elevation gain. there is an asphalt road you can take to the top but it is very steep. there is a trail next to it that makes it easier. made it up in 45 minutes and down in 30. the top was a beautiful lake but was commercial with a restaurant and tram that drives people up. worth the stop to hike up.

this hike was amazing!! went the beginning of october and had perfect weather. i suggest going early so you are alone on the trail - so peaceful. i thoroughly enjoyed hiking bottom up. we took the train to alpigen and then hiked up to the Kleine Scheidegg station. this was cheaper and 30 mins more walking than catching the train at eigergletscher. overall took 2.5-3 hrs hiking with a 15 minute lunch break.

I trained all season to be able to concur this beast of a trail. It did not disappoint with the wonderful views. I'm s glad that I did it with a great friend.

I enjoyed this trail with my parents and grand daughter recently. The trail is easy enough for small children to walk while being able to feel that they are exploring a deep forest. The lake is small, crystal clear and beautiful. The water is so clear that you can see the fish!

I walked this trail with a good friend in Oktober of 2017. We took the train to the station on Schynige Platte and hiked from there. The views of the Eiger, Monk and Jungfrau are beyond imagine. On the other side, the overlook of Brienzersee is equally stunning, more in the sheerness of the edge. There is a 2 meter section of the trail that narrows on both sides. It was all I could do to make it across. Had a great time and am looking forward to doing more hiking in this gorgeous country!

It was so pretty!!! The top is a little crowded, but the hike up was beautiful and worth the crowds. We hiked above the lake and it was much more serene. Don’t take the gondola! The trail is to the left of the parking lot! Have fun

The trail around the lake is rated T4 in some sections above the eastern shore. There are steel cables placed in the most critical parts although before entering and after leaving this area the trail requires absolute concentration as some sections are unrecognizable as trail because of rock slides and washes.
It’s well worth it if you’re looking for some excitement and spectacular views.

Stunning view of the Eiger and Grindelwald down there. Easier to hike downhill from Eigergletcher train station to Alpigen station. You’ll have the North Face of Eiger, a very tall 90 degree cliff shooting up in the sky on your right, and the green of hills around Kleine Scheidegg on your left. Most sections of the trail are green, while some are more rocky.

Great views. Heavily trafficked the day we went. Beautiful lake ! Strenuous but not technical

Amazing. I went a few years ago before I knew about this app. The views are breathtaking. Gorgeous hike in the mountains and the water is unlike anything I have ever seen. A must!

It's an amazing trail. In summer you'll get the best view. Don't take gondola from kandersteg to Oeschinensee. It would be little harder, but it's totally worth it. This is the place which makes you fall in love with Switzerland. If you still have time and energy then you can also complete Heuberg loop.

Great walk again after doing it 20 years ago. Shame the opening stretch was closed, but detour was fun.

Should be called the Schynige Platte Panorama Trail - very famous, very beautiful. Train takes you to the visitor center at the top, which has a little patio restaurant with literally the best views in the world (and I mean that literally literally, not figuratively). The Panorama Trail hike is pretty easy and very beautiful, and only a taste of the hiking in the area, but do it!!

Amazing hike that isn’t too long and easy considering the region.

It’s hard to rate any trail in Switzerland less than five stars. However, on this one, bring a bathing suit and a towel so you can swim in the lake to cool off! Stunning views the entire time. The Swiss are truly blessed with the most amazing landscapes!
