“Do it if you can”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

Since you can only reach the Grosse Scheidegg on foot or by post auto (the Swiss yellow buses that traverse the backcountry), few visitors get to see this beautiful corner of the Bernese Oberland. The best way to take the bus is east to west from Meiringen to Grindelwald. With a ticket you can get on and off, and it would be well worth your while to walk at least part of the trip, for example from Rosenlaui to Schwarzwaldalp, and then again from the top of Grosse Scheidegg down to Grindelwald. In June the wildflowers are incredible and the mountain views are overwhelming.

“Walk from Grosse Scheidegg to Meringen”

Bus up from Grindlewald to Grosse Scheidegg and then walk to Meringen. Fantastic walk - sometimes along a lovely river and lovely views of mountains.

“Esay hikes for families and good Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2011

It's a real family hike from Grosse Scheidegg to Grindelwald First, or vice versa. Restaurant Grosse Scheidegg was a surprise, nicely decorated inside, quick service, good and plenty to eat and moderate prices for a Restaurant up in the mountains. Restaurant First, service as sleepy and not organized at all.
