The Alpwäg Trail starts at the Sibet Schirli. The Alpwäg Trail serves as an extension of the Wetterhorn Trail No. 1, so you start at the Hotel Wetterhorn and follow the Wetterhorn Trail No. 1 or No. 2 to the Sibet Schirli. From there the trail turns left. With a view of the Reeti and the Grindelwald-First winter sports area, the trail winds through the forest and across meadows to Alpwäg. To the left of the slope, the descent now begins towards Stählisboden. Thanks to the impressive view of the Mättenberg and the Wetterhorn, time passes far too quickly and you already reach the Grindelwald - Grosse Scheidegg road. From here you can take the bus back to Grindelwald. If you want to extend the trail, you have two options. Shortly after crossing the road, you come to Mühlebach Trail No. 4. Turn left and climb back to the starting point at Hotel Wetterhorn. Descend to the right to the church in Grindelwald.

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.
