Almost the entire length of the trail is visible from the «Cliff Walk» on First. Bort is just a snowball's throw from the observation terrace, but it takes a bit longer to walk. The trail initially climbs uphill with a view of the Grindelwald-First winter sports area, then winds its way past snow-covered huts and forests into the valley. If you get hungry or thirsty along the way, stop in for a pick-me-up at the Waldspitz. The massive rock faces of the Wetterhorn and Eiger are your constant companions along the entire trail.
First - Waldspitz - Bort
The route through the forest from Waldspitz to Bort is also fun by sledge or similar means of transport.
Car: 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.
Grindelwald has public car parks with covered parking spaces: Eiger+ car park (252 parking spaces) and Sportzentrum car park (160 parking spaces). They cannot be reserved in advance. Uncovered parking spaces are available everywhere in the village.
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.
