How to join Murren to Schilthorn Hike?

If you’re starting from Murren, ignore the Schilthorn hiking signs (they’ll take you up, but the route they follow is far less beautiful than this lesser-known one) and, instead, walk to the cable car station (not the train station) and follow signs for the rotstockhutte. Partway to the hutte (hut), you’ll see signs for Bryndli: start following those. Then, as soon as you see signs for Schiltalp, follow those. Finally, you’ll come to a point where the Schiltalp sign points one way and a sign for Birg points another; follow the signs for Birg and keep beside the fence when the path splits. Keep following to Birg and then follow signs for Schilthorn.
