Ursifluh on traces in the snow
Escape the nearby hustle and bustle along forest paths on the Ursifluh.
In the area of the walking park, often on narrow paths, wander through secluded sections of forest. Sunny conditions are to be found even though long stretches are in the forest (up on the rocky ridge, much deciduous forest). Beautiful viewpoints at the top of the Ursifluh rocky ridge.

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.
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.
