No postbus to Grosse Scheidegg from Grindelwald?

Hi guys,

We are planning to go to for the Grosse Scheidegg-First hiking on 16 May 13. we did a check on sbb but it seems like there is no bus running on weekday. post bus seems to be running on weekend. is there any alternative that we can look out for to reach Grosse Scheidegg? i did saw a "grindelwald bus" but not sure if it operates daily or just weekend. else, we will need to look for other hikin route at murren (perhaps?) but we really wanna do hiking in Grosse Scheidegg.

thanks in advance!

The bus from Grindelwald over Grosse Scheidegg to Schwarzwaldalp ran this year.

Reduced schedule 17 May - 1 June and 8 - 21 October

Summer schedule 2 June - 7 October

I would imagine similar dates in 2013. The start date is dependent on the amount of snow.

The First Gondelbahn had a start date of 17 May this year.

You could get the bus from Grindelwald up to the Oberer Gletscher stop (two buses per hour) and hike up to Grosse Scheidegg from there, then back down again. There are path variants that avoid you having to go up and down the same way.

All depends on how much snow there is and on whether you are OK walking uphill for a couple of hours.
