We visited the Trift Glacier on a sunny Sunday in August. It was definitely crowded for swiss standards (you normally don't find that many people when going hiking in Switzerland) but it was definitely worth it. You can either hike up all the way to the Glacier from the closest bus stop - there is also a parking- for around... More

To get to the bridge you first have to take a little red aerial cable car. The ride itself is spectacular because it goes very high in the mountains and gives you the feeling of flying. Space is narrow and fit for only 4-6 people max. After the ride with the cable car, you get to the hiking starting point... More

After a 2,5 hours walk, you get to the bridge that crosses a gorge. It's 124m long and in an altitude of 80m. Deep below you a torrential stream, having its source at the Aletsch glacier. Pure adrenaline.

We arrived around 10am on a rainy Tuesday in June 2015. The parking lot across from the Triftbahn was empty. I thought the attraction was closed. I went into the office and a very friendly lady told me that it was, in fact, open. She said there was only one other guy on the mountain and he went up quite... More

If you like nature, its a good place to visit. Very nice walking between high mountains, next to de river, animals... lovely!!! Only must remember that you are going to a mountain and the weather changes quickly, although visiting on summer, need a raincoat into the backpack (sun, rain, fog, rain...) and food (don't know if it will take you...

It is better to visit this place if you have your own car or transport as getting to Gadmen Trift Bahn is time consuming by Public transport if you are based in Interlaken. The Cable car ride is fantastic and the walk is superb and not as easy compared to other hiking trails in Swiss. The Shorter Route is more... More

Come early to get cable car tickets otherwise you will have to walk down from the top cable car stop. The short hike from the top cable car stop is very picturesque with the gorge on one side and the immense mountains on the other side. The trail gently ascends through pastures with alpine goats and past rocky fields dotted... More

It is not a very difficult walk from the cable station to the bridge. It takes between 60 - 90 minutes. If you are really energetic you can walk all the way from the bottom instead of catching a ride on the cable car. When it busy it is advisable to book your return trip on the cable car because...

On top of what has already been sain in the previous review, please bear in mind that if going later, the tickets for the return cable car might be sold out and you'll have to hike back all the way from the brige yourself. This is what we did/had to do:) When hiking back to Nessental Triftbahn from the mountain... More

An absolutely wonderful experience. We took the Post auto bus until Nessental Triftbahn. From here one can get the Triftbahn (cable car) until the mountain station and then walk until the Trift hanging bridge (this takes 1 hour 30 minutes). Or else, one can walk from Nessental Triftbahn all the way until the mountain station in 2 hours 30 minutes.... More
