Light-filled winter moments on the «Büchsewäg» on Grimmialp.

The path from the chapel car park to Egg is illuminated with over 250 artistically punched cans. It invites you to take an evening stroll on Grimmialp from the 1st Sunday in Advent to 15 March 2024 from dusk until 10 pm. Every single box has been lovingly made by hand. It is worth taking enough time to marvel!

Every Friday, a snack bar with simple food and hot drinks awaits guests along the trail. The snack bar serves a soup of the day, Cheesbrätel, a Schnousi-Täller with cheese & sausage.  If ordered in advance, we also serve a delicious, spicy Grimmi fondue in a copper kettle on a wood fire (T 077 461 09 61, Combox/Whatsapp). Payment in cash or with TWINT.
