best season

Very demanding and partly exposed trail to Reeti, recommended only for experienced mountain walkers.

This technical summit trail starts in the village and leads up to the sun-drenched slopes of the Reeti. Good footwear and careful footwork are essential for tackling this demanding route which is often very exposed. Personal safety is always the individual’s responsibility, which is why we recommend this trail for experienced mountain walkers. The summit offers a magnificent view of the valley and of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, before the trail continues to First. The route should be attempted only in very good and stable weather conditions.

Tip
Getting there

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.

Parking

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.

Public transit
