Berner Oberland Sights

Oberer Grindelwaldgletscher

Fodor's Review

From Grindelwald you can take a 20-minute drive, hop aboard a postbus, or hike up to the Oberer Grindelwaldgletscher, a craggy, steel-blue glacier—act fast though, because 30% of it has melted since 1963, and forecasts have it shrinking another 20% by 2030. You can approach its base along wooded trails, where there's an instrument to measure the glacier's daily movement.
