On one side the impressive view of the Eiger seen from this particular perspective with the world-famous glacier village of Grindelwald, on the other side the rugged Engelhörner and the wildly romantic Rosenlauital. The exclusive bus ride to the Grosse Scheidegg pass by Grindelwald Bus leads along the foot of the majestic Wetterhorn mountain. Touch the mountains!

Gushing waterfalls, thundering ice falling from glaciers and the idyllic sound of cow bells all the background sounds accompanying you on a walk in the Grosse Scheidegg area. They set the scene for a fabulous and impressive landscape in the heart of the Swiss Alps. Impressively high mountains, rugged limestone rocks, fissured glaciers and roaring waterfalls stand in stark contrast to the colourful, flower-filled meadows, green forests and delightful countryside. The Alpine Aviary, the historic sawmill on Schwarzwaldalp, the wildly romantic Rosenlaui glacier gorge and the Reichenbach falls with the Sherlock Holmes Memorial are some of the special attractions in the area.

The entire hiking trail over the pass follows the bus route. Choose your own personal favourite stretch for your walk!

Grosse Scheidegg - First - Bachalpsee - Waldspitz

Along this unique, high-altitude footpath you'll continuously be surprised by the grandeur of the mountain world and the ever-changing magical scenery.
The slightly undulating path leads from Grosse Scheidegg to First with splendid views of Schreckhorn, Finsteraarhorn and the mighty Eiger wall. Continue in a leisurely ascent to Bachalpsee where the ice-clad peaks are reflected in the crystal-clear lake. The footpath continues in a south-easterly direction across moor landscape, through which gushing streams meander, to Bachläger and on to Waldspitz. From Waldspitz the yellow Grindelwald Buses take you back to Grindelwald.
