We were recommended to try sledging in Bussalp in January, and it was a thrilling and refreshing experience! Bussalp is accessible by bus from Grindelwald station, and takes about 40 mins to the top. Stunning views from the top and on our way down. Was pretty tiring for a first timer but worth a try for some adrenaline rush!

Bussalp may be accessed by bus from Grindelwald and is a stunning drive in itself with a lovely mountain restaurant offering a range of food. It's also a great starting point for walks upward to Faulhorn, and across the mountain ridge to either Schynige Platte or First, or down to Geindelwald. Each offers amazing panoramic views of snow capped mountains.... More

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
