The ravine of the lower Grindelwald Glacier is an impressive masterpiece created by Nature. The ravine, which was once upon a time covered by the glacier, can be hiked, thanks to rock balconies and tunnels. It also attracts climbers and canyon jumpers.

The lower Grindelwald Glacier has fluctuated considerably in the last few centuries. It reached as far as Grindelwald during the so-called Little Ice Age towards the end of the Middle Ages, and advanced the furthest in the years 1600 and 1855. Around the year 1864 the glacier had receded again to such an extent that the famous pink marble could be quarried in the ravine.

Today artificial bridges lead from Hotel Gletscherschlucht (Hotel Glacier Ravine) across thundering meltwater as far as one kilometer into the interior of the ravine. The smooth walls of the ravine are more than 100 meters high on either side. The crystal museum, which exhibits minerals found in this region, lies at the entrance to the glacier ravine.
