  • We have done two routes starting from Grosse Scheidegg, and what better! 1 Romantikweg: from Grosse Scheidegg to Schwarzwaldalp, by the side of the mountain. You can see spectacular landscapes, raisins next to an artisan cheese, and you're seeing the forest and the Valley from the slope. To start this, low once in the bus takes the uploaded since it comes to an antenna (for true, views don't miss out) and go straight along the path above, 20 minutes you see the first poster that it tells you to turn right, and no longer has lost. 2.-Grosse Scheidegg to Schwarzwaldalp Valley. In this way going the Valley, exploring the forest, you reach the side of the River (there is a great place to eat, even you can make fire for grilling some sausages!). To start this road should go down into the Valley, right next to the restaurant. Both routes are suitable for all audiences, simple and well indicated, we did them with 6-year-old girls. They are pleasant, outside the usual and most overcrowded, and with an incredible setting!

  • A beautiful Panoramweg with not so many metres above sea level and fantastic mountain views of Wetterhorn, Schreckhorn and North face of Eiger. Exit from the Busan of the Grosse Scheidegg. The path goes here still quite leisurely. The pure difference is only 200 metres between large Scheidegg and first. Shortly behind "Top stores" the junction to the Marmot bypasses around trail that Schilt with then some altitude, not as I had remembered. Exactly at the half of the Marmot trail, also the branch goes to the black Horn. 2928 m the highest mountain in the region as a normal hiker, but already with very good condition, possible is. There is a normal path that runs along the Gemsbergs and a forking via ferrata. Along the trail of the Marmot are various figures carved from wood. Thrilled you have grass, vibrant Mur Melis. The decline of the top, opposite glacier is terrifying if one compares him with photos of previous years. Actually, he is no longer existent, only at the very top. At first we went to the cliff walk. It is a new top attraction on the West side of the first. A steel structure up to the sunny terrace of the first Inn was built on the steep rock face. We found it takes getting used to and also kinda unnecessary... for the opposite views is already spectacular. Grindelwald is visited by many Asians. They stood in a row then also in long rows of obediently and waiting for the position at the end of the construction to make a kind of "Titanic photo" with upscale high hands. You had to pay admission. We renounced the posing and watched us the spectacles of the terrace. It was still early in the day and so we continued towards Waldspitz. In the first Panel from the first goes very nicely kraxelig and in large steps the way downhill. It also again offers great views of the first with the steel frame. We were pleased to the spectacle of the first to escape. As with the first plane and the first glider which is also new, a little adventure-park atmosphere is conveyed. The way from the first to the Bachalpsee, the we went on day 1, is also so crowded and so touristy, that there is actually no real mountain experience more and is the rest of actually looking for the hikers with much in the way. On our way down to the forest Spitz (1918 m) hiking couples met nus only 2-3 and we enjoyed the views and the peace and quiet. It also again showed a Groundhog up close. Arrived at the forest Spitz it was now noon. We shared a Rösti and a very tasty salad and took ca 1 hour break on the sun terrace with the view. The bus was ready to leave, we would have certainly can go back to Grindelwald, but decided on the way over to the Bussalp. It lies at 1800 m and is also connected to Grindelwald with a bus line. From there, we wanted to drive then later down. There's a panoramic trail... we have not gonommen however, why... Short was a shield with hikers in the forest behind the parking and turning area for the bus. That seemed more comfortable walking than on the road. We are ever walked the way many years ago in the snow, but only the road was possible. Now it should "comfortably" on the hiking trail over go to the Bussalp. The way rose but more and more, we saw the "field" in front of us, since we didn't wanted high actually on the day. Because we once ran the way with friends and we still knew what altitude we have created at that time back. By now was reverse but no option more, so forward and high... We had a beautiful view over the Faulhorn. The bus we saw then even leave and hoped that another one comes. Because objectives such as Bussalp, Waldspitz and be approached not so often and also not so long with the bus on the day. We were lucky 2 busses drove back to Grindelwald, the latency from the Bussalp 50 minutes we spent on the terrace with wonderful views and a cold cold drink for each of us. It also had fresh-baked nut grinding. Hmm very tasty. In the morning starting from the Grosse Scheidegg, the first with the Schilt Marmot way and the not so quite freely elected and intend way across the field to Bussalp were we 6 hrs and 10 min wandered without breaks and have 1070 meters back set

  • A colleague gave me this tip. If you're in Meiringen, drive the Rosenlaui and the Grosse Scheidegg and hintunter to Grindelwald. We did also highly recommended it once with the post bus - experience pur (we continued later by Grindelwald to Interlaken by train and from there to Brienz with the steam ship). And I made it a day later alone with the bike. Somewhat strenuous but the hardships worthwhile panorama immensely -. Would make it again. And forget about not visiting the Glacier Garden in the Rosenlaui - spekatkuläär!
