This one has a little bit of everything! The paved road with gorgeous mountain views up at Mürren gradually transitions to gravel road with the continuity of gorgeous mountain views to Grüschalp, where the path becomes much grassier and less apparent and ultimately descends into the trees by way of switchbacks and farmland until Lauterbrunnen. Absolutely breathtaking views.

This hike starts with a tram ride from Lauterbrunnen to Grutschalp, then a relatively flat but scenic hike to Murren. From there you can choose to take the tram to Birg and the Schilthorn for even better views, or continue hiking to Gimmelwald, where you can take the steep hike down to Stechelberg or take the tram. From Stechelberg there's a path beside the water back to Lauterbrunnen under some of the biggest waterfalls in Switzerland with an optional stop at Trummelbach falls. Thre's also a bus back to Lauterbrunnen. All in all, this is a relatively flat hike that can be made more difficult by hiking up and down from the valley floor. It has spectacular scenery, summer wildflowers, and multiple waterfalls. If you have the Swiss Travel Pass, all trams (including the Schilthorn) and buses are included.
