Only reason to come up here is to look at the lovely views of the valley and take a ride on the summer toboggan. I rode it three times (it cost 5 CHF a go). Really enjoyed whizzing down the side of the mountain like a big kid. Great fun for all ages.

Took this short gondola ride and the hiked across the slopes to Hotel Wetterhorn. From there you can go back via bus or walk. One way to hotel is about 1:10 or so. Another hour to walk back. Great outing for half day. We did it the afternoon we arrived.

This cable car ride gives a quick gain of height above Grindelwald. Three options from the top. One stay there and go on the Rodelbahn (summer luge) which is great for childdren of all ages. Two head left on the Hotel Wetterhorn path which is a gentle flat /.downhill path to that Hotel near the 'Obere' glacier. Right (and a steady up) Is the best walk along the upper side of the gorge to the Baregg hurt with views to the 'Unter' glacier and the mountains above.

Erika and Stefan produce excellent traditional Swiss Alpine food. Always friendly and professional. Spectacular views over the Grindelwald valley. Pfinstegg is a must for all visitors to Grindelwald of all ages.

There are numerous trails from Pfingstegg that take you back down to Grindelwald, or you can walk to one of the mountain huts or restaurants. We walked to Baregg which was a good hike in the summer heat.
