This route begins at the Bussalp bus station. A breathtaking view of the snow-covered peaks of the Bernese Alps already awaits you here. At the beginning, the snowshoe trail runs parallel to the road and the toboggan run for approx. 300 metres. Shortly after crossing the Bussalpbach stream, the trail branches off to the east (right) and climbs via Paffenegg up to the Steessiboden area. Between the fir trees, the Wetterhorn and the Schreckhorn shine in all their glory. The great view of the mountain world quickly makes you forget the stress and hectic of everyday life.The descent follows over snow-covered mats down to the late Boden and on to the Rasthysi restaurant. From here the trail leads via Holewang to the Nodhalten area, where it finally meets the First - Waldspitz - Bort sledging trail. From Bort you can take the cable car back to the village.

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.
