There are a wealth of possibilities from the Kleine Scheidegg, with hikes down to Wengen (2 hours), Grindelwald (4 hours) or to the nearby Lauberhorn (1 hour), all relatively easy trails. There is a tougher walk which is the one hour trail up to the Eigergletscher train station, where you will have views of the massive ice sheet. In the other direction you can hike over to the Männlichen which is perched on a ridge -  this hike is virtually flat all the way. From Männlichen you can either take the cable car down to Wengen or Grindelwald with fantastic views. Alternatively the keen hiker may like to hike back down to either Wengen or Grindelwald from here.


The Bahnhof restaurant is located at the train station and is well known for its regional cuisine and friendly atmosphere. You can enjoy your food and drink whilst admiring the stunning views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfraujoch from one of the terraces. The Hotel Bellevue des Alpes also has a recommended sun terrace with glorious views. 


Kleine Scheidegg has long been one of Europe's top holiday attractions, easily accessible by the railways of the Jungfrau region from Interlaken, Grindelwald, Wengen or Lauterbrunnen.

This is also one of the points where the Jungfrau train begins its remarkable journey up to the Jungfraujoch-Top of Europe.
