We pack our stuff and leave the camping site. Then we head on to Glacier Ravine Grindelwald â€“ Gletscherschlucht Grindelwald for a short hike and visit.
Start: Grindelwald train station. Alder Walk to the Marble Quarry. Cool layers of rock, the lumps of which are always built by hikers along the way to beautiful little stone men. Cairns are piled up in higher mountains to mark paths.
From there we head on to the Ravine.
An impressive masterpiece of nature, the Glacier Canyon was formed by the lower Grindelwald glacier, which over time carved its way through the rock in this area. Sadly the lower glacier no longer exists, but the canyon itself is now thriving as a popular destination for a unique sensory walk through its exposed rock galleries and tunnels. The rushing water cascades freely from the mountains into the LÃ¼tschine River below, sometimes causing a sudden rush of wind through the canyon and a rapid temperature flux as rays of light reflect along the steep walls.
One of the highlights of this attraction is the 170 m2 SPIDERWEB which spans the canyon, providing visitors with a thrilling net platform to scramble, walk or crawl on, seven metres above the roaring LÃ¼tschine River.
From there back to Grindelwald and back to Heidelberg.
Distance: 6 km
Ascent: 243 m
