“Well worth the hike.”
Review of Bussalp

Bussalp
Ranked #6 of 32 things to do in Grindelwald
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 2, 2013

There are few ways to get to Bussalp, the easiest being by bus from Grindelwald, but this is also the most expensive. The most difficult route, but the most rewarding, and free, is by walking from Grindelwald up through the forest to the Aellfluh mountain hut, then on a good track up to Bussalp. It takes about 3 hours. Alternatively, take the First gondola to Bort and walk for 2 hours on a level track from there, or go to First, head to Faulhorn and go down to Bussalp.

The views from the Bussalp restaurant are excellent, with lovely views of the Eiger, Monch, Jungfrau and Silberhorn. There is a small path behind the restaurant that leads to a viewing point where there are benches. As there isn’t a gondola to Bussalp, it is a lot quieter that other scenic places in the area.

We hiked from First --> Bachalpsee --> Faulhorn --> Bussalp and unfortunatley due to weather saw little to nothing. Good excercise though! Be warned if you plan to bus back to Grindelwald its 22CHF per person if you don't have a discount card (50% off, available at trainstation). Otherwise its a 2 hr walk down.

Extend the easy walk from First up the pass and over to Bussalp (with an optional detour to the Faulhorn or not). A little bit more 'up' but well woth it for the views. Check the bus times from Bussalp (back to Grindelwald) before you set off - though there is a small hostelry if you have to wait!

This is a short bus ride and from Grindelwald and there are several easy walks to pick up the Firstbahn or to go further.

Well sign-posted from Grindlewald station, the trail takes you to the Bussalp Restaurant in 2 to 3 hours of hiking through fabulous scenery with great views of the surrounding mountains. The terrace of the restaurant overlooks the Eiger, Munch & Jungfrau. The perfect place for a drink and to soak up the views.
