Starting in Grindelwald, the trail climbs steadily along the foot of the Wetterhorn until it meets the gently undulating Murmeliweg after Grosse Scheidegg, which brings you across to First. From here the cableway provides an alternative short-cut option to return to the valley or continue on foot along the well-trodden hiking trail to the picturesque Bachalpsee. The clusters of tourists become scarce as the trail ascends to the Faulhorn mountain restaurant with its historic summit terrace enticing all who pass to linger a while. A break here is recommended before tackling the steep descent to Bussalp, from where a bus ride brings you back to the village or continue on foot via Schrind back to Grindelwald.

Getting There

Public transport

Thanks to its central location in Europe, Switzerland is served by international trains from over 12 countries. Within Switzerland, Intercity trains run directly from Basel and Lucerne to the Jungfrau Region. Travellers from Zurich have to change in Berne. The trains run every half hour.

Getting there

There are different ways to reach the region by car. The fastest way from Basel and Geneva is via Berne. The fastest route from Zurich is through Lucerne and the Brünig Pass. The pass is open in summer and winter.

From the south, the route goes over the Grimsel or Susten Pass into the region. Both passes are only open in summer. Alternatively, you can take the Simplon Pass and then Lötschberg car transport.

Parking

Grindelwald has public car parks with covered parking spaces: Eiger+ car park (252 parking spaces) and Sportzentrum car park (160 parking spaces). They cannot be reserved in advance. Uncovered parking spaces are available everywhere in the village.
