The path is the goal. Maybe that's what Hannibal thought when he hiked through the Alps with his war elephants – which really don't fit in here. He seems to have had fun. Scout's honour: the hikes in the Jungfrau Region are much more comfortable and are really no bold feat. With a panorama like this, the path has to be the goal. So, walking boots on and off we go.
The true home of the Hobbit.
In 1911, the 19-year-old J.R.R. Tolkien hikes through the Swiss Alps – and of course through the Lauterbrunnen Valley with its steep rockfaces. Hardly anyone knows that he found his inspiration for the landscape in «Lord of the Rings» here.
