This route starts at the Bussalp bus station. Already here, the view of the snow-covered peaks of the Bernese Alps takes your breath away. The snowshoe route initially runs approx. 300 metres parallel to the road and the sledging run. Shortly after crossing the Bussalpbach stream, the trail branches off to the east (right) and climbs up to the Steessiboden area via Paffenegg. The Wetterhorn and Schreckhorn try to outshine one another between the fir trees. The fantastic view of the mountains makes you forget the stress and frenzied pace of your daily grind.

The descent winds over snow-covered fields down to Spätenboden and on to Restaurant Rasthysi. From here the winter hiking trail goes through Holewang to the Nodhalten area, where it finally joins the First – Waldspitz – Bort sledging run.

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.
