Our excursion top tips:

Grindelwald-First boasts more than 60 kilometres of groomed ski slopes and 40 kilometres of hiking and tobogganing trails, not to mention the gigantic panorama of the north walls of the Bernese Alps. The ‘White Elements’ snow park is just as popular as the ‘Tempo 30 ski piste’, on which only slow skiing is permitted.

Wetterhorn Trail
This circular snowshoe trail starts at the Hotel Wetterhorn. Between the hotel and the small kiosk, the path sets out over snow-covered meadows towards Weidli. Just a few minutes later, fantastic views open up of the Grindelwald-First ski region, the Schynige Platte and towards the Grosse Scheidegg pass. At Weidli, the trails branches off to the east (right). With views of the north wall of the Wetterhorn and the eastern flank of the Eiger your constant companions, the trail leads you back to the starting point. This tour is suitable for beginners and takes around one hour.

Männlichen Toboggan Run
The starting point of this toboggan run is Männlichen, which you can reach from Wengen or Grindelwald by aerial gondola. Descending over 1000 altitude metres, the run leads from Männlichen towards Grindelwald to the Holenstein middle station. Snow cover permitting, you can even ride as far as Grindelwald Grund valley station. This zippy toboggan run with bends, steep sections and gliding stretches provides sledding challenges and oodles of fun. Since the run traverses the ski slopes several times along the Itramen road, appropriate caution is necessary.
