Looking for any advice on trekking routes in Switzerland!

Hi all,

Been a long time since I've been on these forums, but I remember this being an amazing community for information about climbing and trekking, so I thought I'd reach out for advice.

My wife and I are in Freiburg, Germany for the summer (leaving in ~1 month), and have not been to the alps yet... mostly been climbing and running in the Black Forest area. We don't have any gear aside from shoes ...

Hiking to Mantova or Gnifetti Huts without using Ski Lifts Hiking to Mantova or Gnifetti Huts without using Ski Lifts

Has anyone ever hiked to the Mantova or Gnifetti Huts without using the ski lifts?
I heard that you can hike from Gresonney and that it takes about 6 hours, but can't find much information about how technical it is, actual hiking time (for medium fitness), scenery en-route, etc.
Any advice or info much appreciated.
