This training loop heads first towards Marmorbruch above Gletscherschlucht and climbs the trail to Pfingstegg where there is a family friendly restaurant and a play area. From here there’s also a cableway down to the village. To complete the 13.5km route, continue to the 150m long Breitlowina tunnel and beyond, passing the Vitaparcours before heading back to Grindelwald. This route lies mostly on the north side of the valley and is therefore best enjoyed in high summer, when the snows have melted.
