Make a reservation for an overnight stay at the mountain hut.
July is perfect for a multi-day hike, but mountain weather can change quickly. Take a look at the weather forecasts a couple days in advance.
In summertime (June to September), you can start the hike as late as lunchtime, because sunset isn't too early. On the first day, the hike takes about 2-4 hours up to the mountain hut.
I wouldn't recommend doing the hike from November through March because of snow.
Hike through forests, over lush-green hills and crawl through caves on this amazing outdoor adventure! Enjoy traditional Swiss food at Berggasthaus Aescher-Wildkirchli, one of the most breathtaking locations you’ll ever dine at and the perfect lunch spot on your Switzerland family vacation. After a restful night at the picturesque and family-friendly Berggasthaus Ebenalp continue your hike in the morning mist with beautiful views of Lake Seealpsee reflecting the rising sun. The scenery along the trail is so varied even little explorers won’t get bored. This experience is a treat for all nature-loving families!
