This training loop heads first towards Marmorbruch above Gletscherschlucht and climbs the trail to Pfingstegg where there is a family friendly restaurant and a play area. From here there’s also a cableway down to the village. To complete the 13.5km route, continue to the 150m long Breitlowina tunnel and beyond, passing the Vitaparcours before heading back to Grindelwald. This route lies mostly on the north side of the valley and is therefore best enjoyed in high summer, when the snows have melted.

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.


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.
