Berner Oberland Sights

Gletscherschlucht (Glacier Gorge)

Updated 10/08/2012

Fodor's Review

Travel down into the valley to Grund, below Grindelwald, and visit the Gletscherschlucht. You can either drive or take the bus to the hotel of the same name. From there you can walk a trail along the river and over bridges about 1 km (½ mile) into the gorge. Although you can't see the glacier itself while walking along the edges of the spectacular gorge it sculpted, you'll get a powerful sense of its slow-motion, inexorable force.
