Glacier Ravine (Gletscherschlucht)
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 glacier ravine is reached in 35 minutes on foot from the centre of Grindelwald or by bus from Grindelwald station (2 km).
Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe
The journey to the Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe, at 3454 metres Europe’s highest altitude railway station, is the highlight of every visit to Switzerland. It offers visitors a high-Alpine wonderworld of ice, snow and rock, which can be marvelled at from vantage terraces, the Aletsch Glacier or in the Ice Palace. On clear days, views extend as far as the Vosges mountains in France and Germany’s Black Forest.
The train journey to the Jungfraujoch through the rock of the Eiger and Mönch is also an incredible experience. Visitors can enjoy stunning views from two intermediate stations, the Eigerwand (Eiger Wall) and Eismeer (Sea of Ice).
Loud thundering and roaring in the interior of the mountain, gurgling, foaming and churning water: these are the Trümmelbach Falls. They are Europe's largest subterranean water falls and are located in the Lauterbrunnen Valley, often called the valley of 72 waterfalls. The Trümmelbach Falls are the world's only glacier waterfalls that are accessible underground by lift, galleries, tunnels, paths and platforms. Also worth a trip at bad weather conditions!
