A hike along the old trading route between the Historic Alpinhotel Grimsel Hospiz and the Hotel and Nature Resort Handeck takes you through some lovely terrain and also some of the most mineral rich.
On the old mule track from the Grimsel Pass to Handegg you walk through history - and the world of the Kraftwerke Oberhasli power company. Here they not only produce electricity but also memorable moments – many facilities are accessible, from the dam above the access tunnel to the works railway.
The area of the Grimsel Pass marks the eastern boundary of the World Heritage Region. From the Grimsel Hospice on the mountain pass of the same name, a footpath leads along the north side of Lake Grimsel through an exciting moorland landscape to the Aare Glaciers.
