The circuit starts at Hotel Wetterhorn, Grindelwald. Between the hotel and the small kiosk, the trail goes through snow-covered fields towards Weidli. After just a few minutes, a magnificent panorama opens up and the view sweeps over the Grindelwald-First winter sports area, the Schynige Platte and the Grosse Scheidegg. The trail branches off to the east (right) at Weidli. With views of the north face of the Wetterhorn and the east side of the Eiger, the trail returns to the starting point. This trail is suitable for beginners. The route is marked in pink.
