Itinerary

A Day in Kleine Scheidegg – Tour from Zurich starts from Zurich's Sihlquai bus terminal at 8:00am. A multilingual guide who speaks English, German and Spanish will accompany you for most of the trip, but you'll be on your own for leisure time at Kleine Scheidegg.

Your trip to Kleine Scheidegg, one of the most picturesque towns in the Bernese Oberland, begins with a coach ride from Zurich to Interlaken. Interlaken is one of Switzerland's most famous winter sport resorts, boasting not only hiking and sporting opportunities, but a diverse range of shops as well.

At around 10:30am you will arrive in Interlaken for a short break of 30-45 minutes. After this you'll travel to Grindelwald - a resort also known as Glacier Village - to board the cog-wheel train to Kleine Scheidegg. This train ride is the perfect photo opportunity, as the train winds its way through the sparkling, snowy Alps, revealing breath-taking panoramas.

You will arrive in Kleine Scheidegg at around 12:20pm. Settled in at over 2,000 metres above sea level, Kleine Scheidegg sits just at the base of some of Switzerland's most famous mountains, offering beautiful views of the north face of the famous Eiger. The Kleine Scheidegg serves as the starting point for many hiking trails, though some of these may be closed during the winter. You'll have 4 of hours to explore the town, dine at some of Kleine Scheidegg's top-rated restaurants, and even hike some trails.

After spending some time at Kleine Sheidegg, you'll board the train around 4:20pm and head back down to Lauterbrunnen. After a quick break there, the coach will meet you to take you safely back to Zurich, ensuring you arrive back to your pick-up point by 8:00pm.
