Erika and Stefan produce excellent traditional Swiss Alpine food. Always friendly and professional. Spectacular views over the Grindelwald valley. Pfinstegg is a must for all visitors to Grindelwald of all ages.

“Good walks from here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

There are numerous trails from Pfingstegg that take you back down to Grindelwald, or you can walk to one of the mountain huts or restaurants. We walked to Baregg which was a good hike in the summer heat.

“Great fun for homesick kids.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

After lots of "boring" sightseeing (our kids' description, not ours), this was the perfect remedy. The kids loved zooming down the alpine slide and being towed back up again. That made it perfect for the parents: we could sit at the top and relax while they rode over and over again.

“Excellent place to start.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We've hiked down to Grindelwald previously from the Pfingstegg to just get started upon arrival in Grindelwald. The view in the gondola going up gives a wonderful view of the Grindelwald valley area and the walk/hike down takes an hour or two depending on which trail you use.
Well worth it.

“A good start for a walk but take care!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Pfingstegg is a good starting point for a walk. Be careful early in the year and check that the path is in good repair and the snow cleared before setting off. The road down may seem the easy option but is extremely steep and I would not recommend it. Keep off the bergwegs (red and white signs) unless you are sure that you are sufficiently experienced and the weather good.
