Tour description

From the Grindelwald railway station, the route heads a short way into the village before branching off to the right on the road towards Grindelwald Grund. Passing charming chalets, you then follow the River Lütschine to the impressive glacier gorge (Gletscherschlucht). With its mills, polished rock faces and pink and green marble blocks, the gorge of the Lower Grindelwald Glacier is an imposing natural masterpiece. Once covered by glacier ice, today it is accessed by rock galleries and tunnels. Man-made walkways, in places flanked on both sides by polished cliffs over 100 metres high, lead over the thundering glacier meltwaters of the Schwarze Lütschine river. Through picturesque sceneryThe following uphill section to Boneren is made over rocks and secured ladders. The views opening up towards Grindelwald and the opposite mountain chain with the Faulhorn and Schwarzhorn are simply stunning. The mountain trail continues along the foot of the Eiger, through forest and shady glades, past tiny mountain streams to Alpiglen.


Technically demanding, part of the trail only possible with the use of (secured) ladders.
Normal hiking gear, hiking boots with good soles and walking sticks help with the ascent.
End of May to mid-October.
