You can't go wrong hiking around Grindelwald. With clearly signposted mountain trails to pristine lakes, hidden meadows and tall peaks, there is an option for everyone and every fitness level.

The Gasthaus Waldspitz is situated on and close to many of these trails, and is the perfect startin point, finishing point or rest stop recharge before continuing on your journey.

The nearby First and Bort gondola stations are ideal starting points for beautiful hikes up to Bachalpsee, Faulhorn and on to Bussalp - or you can take the Grindelwald Bus 127 daily in the summer months, and start your hike from our door.

Follow the signs and wander through picturesque alpine meadows, past the famous Bachalpsee, undisturbed forest groves and enjoy the fantastic views of Grindelwald and the surrounding mountains.
