Mt.Wetterhorn rises majestically and is easily recognizably just above the Grosse Scheidegg. It is just because it is so close to the famous mountain triumvirate Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau that it is less known, but injustly so. The Grosse Scheidegg is the shortest connection between Grindelwald and Meiringen and is in itself a point of departure for many great hikes.

Description

A bus takes hikers and others up to the nearly 2000-meter-high Grosse Scheidegg. The road, with its narrow hairpin curves, is otherwise closed to the public. Once there, begin hiking towards the First. At Point 2006 a mountain trail forks off. Shortly before reaching the mountain station of the First chairlift, take the left fork. There is a rather steep descent to the plateau of Bort. From here, the route continues straight down to Grindelwald. In the last part of the hike, the trail leads through fairly dense forests.

    Is the road open to cyclists?
