So cool!!!! The Rodelbahn was specular and inexpensive. Kids below 8 rides for free and we took at least 5 rounds coz it was fun thrill for the kids and beautiful scenery for the adults. Scenery at the top is also so serene and majestic.

The toboggan run here is not that long but it still gives the younger kids some joy and excitement. If you are looking for thrills try the flyer at First or the trot bike at Bort. Nevertheless Pfingstegg is a scenic place with good walking trails for all ages. It does give good views of the valley.

Cable gondola from Grindelwald to Pfingschtegg only takes about 5 mins. This used to be part of most travel tickets for the region but is now apparently privately owned so there is only a 20% reduction in the price. We've never eaten in the restaurant as it's been early so can't offer an opinion. The walk along, basically, the face... More

We took the cable car to the top of the mountain and drank tea at the restaurant. We were the only ones there! It was a beautiful, cloudy day and people were afraid of rain, I guess, because they weren't crowding the spot. It was also just past the off season time, so was far less crowded anyway. In any...

Went walking there many years ago in early summer. Was meant to be an easy stroll and it was a gorgeous sunny day. Was surprised to find a waterfall coming right down to the path. Put my wet weather jacket on and ran through it. Heard what sounded like a rumble of thunder which made no sense on a completely... More

We took the cable car up to Pfingstegg and walked to the lower glacier. The walk is relatively easy, but you need good hiking boots and good lungs. The views on the way up on the well kept track are breath taking. Eventually, you get to a mountain restaurant that is modern and clean where you can relax before you,... More

I really enjoyed the trip to the top and the views are great. Having visited the area a few times in the past we decided to avoid the main cable cars and visit some less well known places. We visited in the middle of summer,but there were only a few people going up, so it was really quick to make... More

we went up here on the last day of the season and had loads of fun on the toboggan and did it a few times, after that we decided to hike up to the baregg hut at the top of the mountain expecting a plate of chips to find the restraunt had shut already!
