We walked from Grindelwald 1000 meter up and back (20km, 7 hours). It has excellent views on the Eiger, Jungfrau and other mountains. Alternatively you can take the bus and walk more horizontal starting in Busalp or only walk-up or down. There are a few buses per day, but unless you can get a discount,these are extremely expensive. In Bussalp... More

We took the local bus up the pleasant drive to the high hills, used the cafe for a very reasonable coffee and cake before taking one of the way marked walks back to the village.What a great day.

The walk from Bussap to Bort was a highlight of our trip to Switzerland. From the mountain bus trip up, to the wildlife, mountain streams and meadows of wildflowers. Just loved it. And the walk to Bort was just long enough.

The bus ride to Bussalp is a great experience. The views on arrival are worth the effort. The café on arrival is welcoming with good food & friendly staff

In my opinion, majority of the first time visitors to Grindelwald know little about this glacier village; it is not just about its tourists packed Jungfraujoch. There are many hidden gems of nature's best awaiting your discoveries the next time you return. Although Gimmelwald, an Alpine village above the valley of Lauterbrunnen, frequently mentioned and rated over Grindelwald by Rick... More

A trip on the bus from Grindelwald (quite an experience in its own right) takes you to Bussalp where you're met with a memorable panorama across the valley and down to the distant village. Prices in the restaurant are high and they like you to eat or drink if you're sitting or you use their toilet. There is nothing else... More

You go up by bus, go down with a sledge on a road. It is very safe. There are some bars on the journey down. On the bussalp, someone rent sledge. It is a very easy downhill, pretty long. You can count 1 hour and sth. to go down.

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
