Grindelwald Grund - Glacier Gorge

The Eiger at the back of your neck and the Wetterhorn in front of your eyes.

There will certainly be no lack of natural motivation against this backdrop. The cross-country ski trail in Grindelwald Grund is easily accessible by bus or train. A large car park is also available. The varied route leads through forests and across open areas. Outside the forest, the view of the snow-covered peaks is so overwhelming that you should stop briefly to let the power of the mountains take effect on you. Whether classic or skating, the trails are very suitable for beginners. On the flat track, the new movements are quickly learned and improved; best under the guidance of a cross-country skiing instructor. A small cloakroom is available in the Aspi (golf course), showers are not available.

General information

Safety Guidelines

In the evening the cross-country tracks are freshly prepared and then need rest until the next morning to firm up again - this is the only way we can guarantee the high quality standard of the tracks.

Please do not use the freshly prepared trails in the evening - thank you for your understanding.

Getting there

From Basel and Geneva, the fastest route to the Jungfrau Region is via Bern. From Zurich, the route via Lucerne and the Brünig Pass is recommended. The pass is open all year round.

From the south, travel to the Jungfrau Region via the Grimsel or Susten Pass. Both passes are only open in summer. An alternative is the Simplon Pass with subsequent car transport through the Lötschberg tunnel.

From Interlaken we follow the main road to Zweilütschinen. Here we turn left towards Grindelwald. The whole trip takes about 30 minutes and leads over a partly winding road.

Arrival Grindelwald


There are three public car parks: Parkhaus Eiger+ (252 parking spaces), Parkhaus Sportzentrum (160 parking spaces) and the new Terminal Parking (1000 spaces) of the V-Bahn. Alternatively, we can also use the car park in Grindelwald Grund.

Public transit

Thanks to its central location in Europe, Switzerland is served by international trains from over 12 countries. Within Switzerland, Intercity trains run from Basel and Lucerne directly to the Jungfrau Region. Travellers from Zurich change trains in Bern. The trains run every half hour.

GrindelwaldFrom Interlaken Ost railway station we reach Grindelwald without changing trains on the Bernese Oberland Bahn (BOB). Important: Get on the rear part of the train, as it splits in Zweilütschinen. If you get on at the front, you will end up in Lauterbrunnen. The journey takes 30 minutes to Grindelwald Terminal (V-Bahn). Three minutes later we are at the terminal in the village.

There are three stations in Grindelwald (Terminal, Grund and Dorf). The terminal station (Dorf) is in the centre of Grindelwald.
