We started out trip in Grindelwald and our first stop was Bussalp. It's a Restaurant conveniently located in the middle of a breathtaking scenery. Near the restaurant there was a little cottage that sold Alpen cheese and home-made ice creams, I would definetly recommend getting both as it's well worth it.

I started my trip from Interlaken Ost to Grindelwald. Stop at Grindelwald and continued with a bus to Bussalp. The scenic view during the road trip was amazing. At Bussalp we didn't play sledge but taking a stroll. We enjoyed our time so much.

Not quite sure what the point of charging CHF23 for a bus ride was - but we took this so we could do the Monster Trotti Bike which was great fun. Would do again - kids (ages 11, 8 and 6) loved it.

one can get to Bussalp on the Bussalp bus close to the train station in Grindelwald, at the bus stop area there is a little wooden hut where you can buy a bus ticket. once at Bussalp ther are a few actities to do up there. There is a restraunt for eat's and drink's, you can rent a tobbogan at the bus stop and toboggan down the mountain, or walk the well marked trail across to Bort and take the cable car back down to Grindelwald. the walk is stunning and about halfway across the mountain there is a little hut for hot chocolate Gluckwein and hot dogs which are great. one can spend 5-6 hours easily up there

The lady at the bus station said the ticket purchased to Bussalp could be used for a return as the city run was closed. However, when I tried to board the bus at the stop where the family run ends, I was treated incredibly rudely by the bus driver. He said the ticket was invalid but I explained the situation. He was visibly annoyed and insinuated I was trying to somehow cheat. Why on earth this is I cannot imagine. He insisted I pay another 13 in addition to the already paid 24. I agreed but had no more cash since i also had to pay for a sled at the top. Another 14. They did not accept cards either so eventually he shouted I ahould pay back in town and Tore up my original ticket. In all the years I have been coming to Switzerland I have never experienced this kind of attitude towards tourists and was quite shocked. I should add the same driver also shouted at another woman over something which displeased him. For info this happened on 21 feb 16:30 bus down back to Grindelwald.

Went Night Sledging (Sledding) with 40 of my best friends! We had done this before 15 years earlier, however this time, better sleds, better snow and now a Bar at the halfway point! I have to Laugh at the "Near Death Experience" review before me. Have the fun is that it is at night with headlamps on. There was a few cars but all knew we were there and obviously knew we could be coming down the road.
We booked the Bus, Cheese Fondue and sledging and had the time of our lives! Cheese Fondue still sucks! But the beer was cold and the sleds were hot! took about 45 minutes, plus 30 minutes at the halfway bar. One injury a broken ankle after our buddy took a wrong turn and hit a bush wrong. The good news was he kept going and said he'd go again!
This is NOT for small children. I'd say 10 years on up. I'm 62 going on 30 but older folks can easily do it. Wear PROPER gear, you steer with your feet so wear good boots with a stiff heal.

Most crazy experience in my life. We barely escaped with our life, as we went down the sledding track at Bussalp. We knew the road was shared with the busses coming up to offload more sledders, so we went in a resonable pace downhill on alert, but were still cought completely by surprise when turning a corner: out of the blue and with no signal warning were three busses coming up hell bent and braking for nobody. We had perhabs 20 m to stop on a sloping road which turned out to be impossible. Reaction took over and we had to throw ourselves to the side, rolling past the bus wheels down along the side of the bus. The driver never stopped to check on us. Naturally we were extremely shaken, so we decided ditch the sled and go for a walk instead. On our way up with the bus we agaain saw several near-accidents where people had to throw themselves to the side to prevent a fatality. Un-be-lievable!!! This would NEVER fly in any other civilized country. Why on earth dont they have a car drive in front to stop ongoing traffic before the busses coming crashing into you? The horn is NOT loud enough to be heard, and is not used all the way up or down either. Irresponsible, dangerous and not worth your life. Find another place.

Regular bus from town centre. Driver was very nice, friendly and helpful. Cost of bus 28euro. Very exciting journey to mountain top where the sledges are and cost 18 euros. Fantastic trip down. We enjoyed the trip so much going back with our daughter next week. Definitely worth having a go.

We went twice to Bussalp for sledding during a 4 day visit. You take the bus up to the top of the hill and then sled down the road, which is a winding path. You can get up to some pretty good speeds, and many tight turns are fun to navigate. Our six year old rode along with one of us with no problems. One day we just did one run and the second day we did three runs. I felt much more confident in my ability to control the sledge with more experience. The run was in best condition in the morning and got a little icy as the day went along, making it harder to control the sled. Sledges can be rented at the top of the mountain in a little hut about 150 meters from the restaurant where the bus drops you off. If you move quickly you can race down in under 25 minutes and get the next bus to the top almost immediately. But if you take too much time getting down the mountain, you will be stuck waiting at the bottom for a while, as much as an hour and a half.
