The "Royal Walk" leads from the top station of the Männlichen cable car via the gravel dome to the summit. On the way there is a whole kingdom to discover. The path through the future kingdom begins at the entrance gate. On the way the hikers meet a court painter, explore a variety of treasures and get to know your court. Who the secret ruler of the region really is will be revealed at the end of the hike.

Already the approach to Männlichen is a small adventure. From Grindelwald the world's longest cable car takes young and old up to the top. From Wengen the "Royal Ride" takes you to the top station.

Getting There

Public transport

Thanks to its central location in Europe, Switzerland is served by international trains from over 12 countries. Within Switzerland, Intercity trains run directly from Basel and Lucerne to the Jungfrau Region. Travellers from Zurich have to change in Berne. The trains run every half hour.

Getting there

There are different ways to reach the region by car. The fastest way from Basel and Geneva is via Berne. The fastest route from Zurich is through Lucerne and the Brünig Pass. The pass is open in summer and winter.

From the south, the route goes over the Grimsel or Susten Pass into the region. Both passes are only open in summer. Alternatively, you can take the Simplon Pass and then Lötschberg car transport.

Wengen is car-free and can be reached by cogwheel railway from Lauterbrunnen or on foot. The car can be parked in the Lauterbrunnen multi-storey car park.


The covered multi-storey car park in Lauterbrunnen is located at the entrance to the village near the railway station and offers direct access to the cable cars to Wengen.

Grindelwald has public car parks with covered parking spaces: Eiger+ car park (252 parking spaces) and Sportzentrum car park (160 parking spaces). They cannot be reserved in advance. Uncovered parking spaces are available everywhere in the village.
