Bussalp is probably the best sledding place in Switzerland. And Unlike most other sledding places, Bussalp is uniquely for sledders or hikers, so no skiers or snowboarders around. It is ideal for families. There are several slopes. For very ambitous sledders there is the hike to Faulhorn from where you can descend all the way to Grindelwald on the world's... More

Good walk with lovely restaurant at the top, but as always a bit pricey. Good areas for picnics. Excellent views of the 3 peaks opposite.

Even out of ski season snow is close. Easy access from township & well worth trip for extra views & track walking even when not ski-ing.

It was a fine clear day and we took the Post bus from Grindelwald up to Bussalp. We discovered from the helpful lady at the ticket office that our Hiker’s passes gave us free travel. It was fun hearing the warning hooter as we approached bends in the road and impressive how the driver skilfully negotiated the very narrow stretches.... More

We hiked from Bussalp (arr by bus) to Faulhorn through beautiful pastureland full of wildflowers, to a chorus of cowbells echoing off the valley walls.

We were looking for something less taxing, so took the Postbus from Grindelwald to Bussalp, had a nice coffee and then hiked for about 2.5 hours to Bort, and then some of us took cable car while others continued by foot to town.

Bussalp is a half-hour bus-ride up from Grindelwald. Everybody seems agreed that the bus-fare is wickedly expensive, but if you are not able to walk or cycle then there is little choice, the road is not open to cars. (Even if it were, just think whether YOU would want to drive it.) The view from the top should help you... More

I finally convinced my wife to go sledding, she wasn't to thrilled about going but that changed after this experience. We stayed in Grindelwald for the 2nd xmas in a year and we were lucky enough to get tons of snow on Dec 26th, the 27th was breathtaking with snow on all of the trees and village. So we ventured...

There are few ways to get to Bussalp, the easiest being by bus from Grindelwald, but this is also the most expensive. The most difficult route, but the most rewarding, and free, is by walking from Grindelwald up through the forest to the Aellfluh mountain hut, then on a good track up to Bussalp. It takes about 3 hours. Alternatively,... More
