The Alp of Pfingstegg ist THE viewpoint of Grindelwald. With the only Areal tramway of Grindelwald you can go up to the Alp where lush meadows, glaciers close enough to touch and get a magnificent view to the valley. Experience an action-packed ride on our toboggan run and then enjoy the view from the restaurant terrace, or one of the many seating areas. 2016 , we will expand our range of playground for Kids and adults. We're open from May to October. Pfingstegg - THE Grindelwald Paradise!

Really good walk up from the river with great views of the gorge. A brilliant spot to have a drink before heading back down again, they do food so if you're hungry you can get a bite to eat. Great view over to Grindelwald !!

Good tasty food in a traditional way of serving. Watch out for Rösti and cheese specialities (fondue e.g.).
