The Post Bus from Grindelwald takes you through flower-filled meadows past the Oberer Gletscher into a single track road up to a height of 1,162 metres (6,437 feet) from which you have panoramic views of the mountains. The Berghotel serves coffee and other refreshments.

Grosse Scheidegg is situated above Grindelwald & is on the road to Meiringen. Only accessible by road by Post Bus, or on foot. The best way is by the bus, so you can take in the fantastic views!!
