22 Grindelwald - Abbachfall - Bussalp


Description

The hike begins at the main Grindelwald railway station where you hike along Spillstattstrasse to the branch-off at Geisstutz. From here you continue along Eschengasse, climbing steadily and leaving the village behind. After passing the steep Enzibodengasse, the route enters Bussalpstrasse. It's worth taking time to enjoy the wonderful panoramic views as you walk up Bussalpstrasse. You leave Bussalpstrasse at the Weidli bus stop and after a few minutes reach the impressive Abbach waterfall, which carries a lot of water depending on the time of year. The hike continues via Matten until the asphalt path ends in the forest. Along the unsurfaced trail in the direction of Unterläger you repeatedly enjoy an ever-changing panorama before reaching the idyllic location of unter Schepfen with its alp huts. Following the Bussalp stream, you'll find your destination of Bussalp is not far away and you'll soon be able to take a well-earned rest at the restaurant.
