Enjoy a memorable trip to the Pfingstegg above Grindelwald. The cable car transports you quickly and conveniently to the summit station. Once at the summit, visitors can enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, a fast toboggan run, a mountain restaurant and a children’s play area.
From Grindelwald, Pfingstegg is reached by cable car. This family-friendly day-trip destination awaits discovery amid the sensational mountain scenery of the Jungfrau region. The Pfingstegg is the ideal starting point for memorable hikes to the imposing Grindelwald glacier as well as exhilarating descents of the summer toboggan run. Traverse the 700-metre course through lush green alpine meadows at high speed, taking in breathtaking views of Grindelwald and the surrounding peaks as you go. Enjoy a good meal in the mountain restaurant while the children run around in the playground. Want to get active in natural surroundings? Walk to the upper or lower Grindelwald glacier to discover a world of ice and rock at close quarters. For a special experience, try the unique Sky Dinner: subject to prior registration, the gondola car transforms into a moving temple of gourmet delight for an evening. As you ascend the mountain, you enjoy an aperitif as you hang in the air; this is followed by the main course in the mountain restaurant, and a fine dessert served on the way back down. More information on this special culinary experience is available from the Pfingstegg cable car station.
