The terminal will remain temporarily closed due to the official regulations regarding coronavirus. As soon as the lockdown for the mountain railways is over, summer operation of the Männlichen Railway can start and the terminal will be open to the public again. This will now happen on 6 June 2020.

Access to the BOB stop is also currently guaranteed at all times via the night access and access from the Rothenegg roundabout.

The local bus still stops at the provisional bus stop at the Grindelwald Grund Intersport building. This regulation is expected to apply until the beginning of the school summer holidays.
