Grimmialp – a natural adventure playground

Hiking and skiing region of impressive Alpine views

The Grimmialp offers nature lovers all kinds of adventure. Go hiking with views of a majestic Alpine panorama and test your skills at Switzerland’s first e-trial park. In summer, the Grimmimutz adventure trail is popular with families. The ski season starts when the first snow falls. Experience a wondrous winter landscape on cross-country skis, touring skis or snowshoes.

A hiking paradise for nature lovers

Keen hikers will find the Grimmialp the perfect destination. The Stierenberg summit station opens onto a wonderful hiking area offering a stunning panorama of mountains, tiny lakes and rare alpine flowers. Why not take a mountain hike on the Rauflihorn or a panoramic walk to the Grimmiwasser energy source? The red of the iron-rich waters against the green of the pastures makes for an interesting photo subject.
