The starting point of this scenic winter hike is the Bort station. From Grindelwald the gondola cableway takes you up to the Bort station. Once you’ve reached the top, you can marvel at the view of the fantastic mountain panorama of the Jungfrau Region. In addition to the pleasant sun terrace of the Berghaus Bort, a mountain inn and guesthouse, the Bort station has an Alpine playground where kids can play and romp. 

The well-maintained and marked winter hiking trail leads you through Mühlebach back to the village of Grindelwald in about 1.5 hours. The beginning of the trail winds downhill along the little road to Regenmatte. From Regenmatte, the trail continues to the right, along the ski and sledging run until you reach the Mühlebach Schule bus stop. Here you can decide to take the bus back to the village centre or walk back to the village in about 30 minutes.

Step by Step Directions

Bort - Grindelwald via Mühlebach

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 from Basel and Lucerne directly to the Jungfrau Region. Travellers from Zurich change trains in Bern. The trains run every half hour.

 

Grindelwald

From Interlaken Ost railway station we reach Grindelwald without changing trains on the Bernese Oberland Bahn (BOB). Important: Get on the rear part of the train, as it splits in Zweilütschinen. If you get on at the front, you will end up in Lauterbrunnen. The journey takes 30 minutes to Grindelwald Terminal (V-Bahn). Three minutes later we are at the terminal in the village.

There are three stations in Grindelwald (Terminal, Grund and Dorf). The terminal station (Dorf) is in the centre of Grindelwald.

Getting there

From Basel and Geneva, the fastest route to the Jungfrau Region is via Bern. From Zurich, the route via Lucerne and the Brünig Pass is recommended. The pass is open all year round.

 

From the south, travel to the Jungfrau Region via the Grimsel or Susten Pass. Both passes are only open in summer. An alternative is the Simplon Pass with subsequent car transport through the Lötschberg tunnel.

 

Grindelwald

From Interlaken we follow the main road to Zweilütschinen. Here we turn left towards Grindelwald. The whole trip takes about 30 minutes and leads over a partly winding road.

 

Parking

Grindelwald

There are three public car parks: Parkhaus Eiger+ (252 parking spaces), Parkhaus Sportzentrum (160 parking spaces) and the new Terminal Parking (1000 spaces) of the V-Bahn. Alternatively, we can also use the car park in Grindelwald Grund.
