Griesalp PostBus adventure trail

On the Griesalp adventure trail, you can discover the curving roads used on Europe’s steepest bus route as well as tumbling waterfalls and impressive gorges.

The themed trail is dedicated to the four elements of earth, fire, water and air. Following the spectacular PostBus ride up to Griesalp, the hiking trail takes you on an approximately two-hour route past the Tschingelsee lake down into the Kiental. Along the way, walkers pass a viewing platform overlooking the steep bends of the PostBus route and a pretty photography spot by the Tschingelsee. There are also a climbing wall and a watertight barbecue spot, making the trail ideal for families with children. After descending a full 500 metres, you’ll arrive at your destination: the valley station of the Ramslauenen chairlift.
