A journey you`ll never forget! The BOB railway takes you from Interlaken along the valley of the Schwarze Lütschine river to the glacier village of Grindelwald. The comfortable bus ride at the foot of the Wetterhorn to the Grosse Scheidegg pass (1960m) in the yellow Grindelwald Bus is an experience of a special kind. Beautiful scenery and a stunning mountain view with lush alpine meadows, a unique fauna and flora and glaciers flanked by the spectacular Bernese Oberland mountains will all leave an everlasting impression.

The descent leads through fairytale, wildly romantic countryside scattered with ancient huts, beautiful meadows and rugged mountains landscape down to Schwarzwaldalp. Entire fields of Alpine roses line the upper part of the narrow, twisting road. A short journey in the Post Bus takes you from Schwarzwaldalp to Rosenlaui. Here, a visit to the wildly romantic glacier gorge is not to be missed, before you decide to continue your journey to Meiringen. From Meiringen the Central Railway takes you to the idyllic village of Brienz, famous for its carvings, and back to Interlaken Ost, the point of departure. Ideally you can complete the journey from Brienz to Interlaken whilst relaxing on board a boat on Lake Brienz.

The unforgettable day trip...the countryside spoils one with superlatives!
