Highly recommended when you are in Grindelwald -- continue walking past the First Cable Car station in Grindelwald to the Pfingstegg cable car. We had lunch at the bistro up the top and then proceeded to the toboggan run - kids absolutely loved it!

The toboggan ride only lasts a couple of minutes, but it's a fun, low-key thrill that is worth the 5.50 Sfr. If you're looking up, you'll have beautiful views of Grindelwald below. Adults can ride with small children. It's easy to brake, but if you prefer to go fast, hold off on braking until the end. There's a lift that... More

The toboggan run was great fun but pretty pricey and you have to pay to come up the Gondola as well which adds to the cost. The supervision on the ride was a bit patchy but most people seemed to be able to manage the instructions properly [only a few chose to ignore it] Make sure that your ticket is... More

Hi johnde215ll Thanks for your Review. First: our Toboggan is not dangerous!

Navigating the Grindelwald area meant finding the best activities and trying not to be too touristy. Having heard that Grindelwald was a bit over exploited, we arrived on the train after a beautiful ride to a real marathon of some description being held in the town. Under the awesome North face of the Eiger, we watched the runners come in... More

Too short and too expensive as you have to pay to get up on the Gondala to use it. Ok price for the run but unless you want a strenuous walk it's pricey

We saw this place in a pamphlet and my wife said she wanted to try it. You will need to buy a ticket for the cable car (about $24) going up, then you need to buy another ticket ($5.5) for the ride. The ride was only about 5 mins. The activity is more for kids.
