Enjoy the impressive world of mountains at the foot of the Wellhorn, as well as the view to the wild Engelhörner. The Schwarzwaldalp is the starting point for many attractive hiking and mountain bike routes. You’ll be amazed to see the saw mill that is more than 100 years old, with its ingenious mechanics and which is operated solely by concentrated and clean natural energy. The precision is simply unbelievable!

How about if we spoil you in our relaxing restaurant with delicious local selections. Whether you’d simply like some coffee and cake, something more hearty or a quiet dinner, you will find whatever your heart desires in Chalet-Hotel Schwarzwaldalp.

Grosse Scheidegg - Oberläger - Pfanni - Schwarzwaldalp

On this wonderfully varied mountainous walk you'll be accompanied by the majestic Wetterhorn mountain and the rugged Engelhorn range.
The path undulates gently from Grosse Scheidegg to Gratschärm, where we turn right. A flat path takes us on to Scheidegg Oberläger. A wonderfully pleasant footpath takes us to the steep descent down to Pfanni (alternatively take the footpath from Scheidegg Oberläger via Hornseeli to Pfanni). The path descends over alpine meadows, past dairy huts to Schwarzwaldalp. Should you have time, it's well worth visiting the ancient sawmill at Schwarzwaldalp or the impressive Rosenlaui Gorge.

The yellow Grindelwald Bus takes you from Schwarzwaldalp back to Grindelwald or further on to Meiringen.
