Beautiful summit trail leading from Grindelwald to the Upper Grindelwald glacier. Take the Grosse Scheidegg bus from Grindelwald to Upper Lauchbühl, where the trail sets out toward the Glecksteinhütte. The mountain hut is open from mid-June to the end of September and warmly welcomes day hikers and overnight guests. From the hut, a mountain trail continues up to the Chrinnenhorn which is very exposed in some sections and should be only be attempted by experienced mountain walkers with appropriate footwear and equipment.

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.
