Easy Hike from Murren to Grutschlap Feb 06, 2017
While the hike from Murren to Grimmewald can be crowded on mid spring days the hike from Murren down to Grutschlap is not. Both hikes follow paved roads and the hike to Grutschap has an even lower grade change than the hike to Grimmewald.

The hike to Grutschlap is about 4.3 km. and will take about 1.5 hours depending on how many times you stop to rest or admire the scenery. The hike follows a paved road that runs parallel to the Murren and Grutschlap narrow gauge railway. Trains run up and down between the two places about every 30 minutes so you will definitely see the train coming up and down a few times.

Along the way down to Grutschlap you will see many older homes, some completely abandoned. The views of the Lauterbrunnen Valley along the way are spectacular. The views in many cases are not as open to the valley and peaks as they are in Murren and other trails in the area.

About halfway down the trail you will come to the tiny stop of Winteregg. There is a rail station and an excellent restaurant there. However on our trips by train up and down the mountain I cannot recall the trains stopping in Winteregg.

Upon reaching Grutschalp you can buy a one way ticket on the narrow gauge rail line back to Murren if you are too tired to walk back slightly up hill. All in all its a very easy and spectacularly pretty hike.
