  • This is a very interesting and impressive site to visit. They have built a walk way along the canyon wall approximately 800 meters into the canyon. There is also a small museum at the canyon entrance ...  more »
  • The ticket 17chf,9 month opens in the morning 9:30-18:00. The bus is available. It took us 2 hours to walk and stop, but it was easy to walk. Amazing scenery and playful settings.

  • Pretty amazing place! It's actually quite cool through here, even on a hot day! There's netting across the chasm for those who dare to walk on and watch the water below you rush past.
  • This is a beautiful gorge well worth visiting. The hike is very easy but be mindful of the wet places and the low hanging ceiling at certain places. The path is massive stone for the biggest part but sometimes you will be walking on an overhang. Some places are even metal crate so you can see down. Might be tricky if you suffer from vertigo. At the very end you can meet the local glacier giant so there might be a motivation for the kids ;) Another highlight is certainly the net that was hung across the canyon. I did not dare to go on it but my son loved it. Certainly impressive and a photo opportunity. The Restaurant at the beginning is lovely with a nice playground. We only had drinks so I cannot rate the food. There is a post bus station right in front of it which will take you back to Grindelwald through a very scenic wood.
  • Extremely interesting and beautiful natural phenomenon. We found it much better than the more famous and similar Aare gorge. Lots of helpful information. Good place to bring children to learn about global warming.
  • Amazing place. Power of the nature. Temperature inside is not much higher than 10 degrees (c) even in high summer season. This is good place to cool down.
  • Wonderful views on the walk up the crevasse and good food in the restaurant. All reasonably priced.
