The short beginner's tour on the Grimmialp is just the right thing to test the unfamiliar Mountain Drive vehicle and get a feel for riding off-road.

Mountain Drive is an all-terrain wheelchair specially designed for natural mountain hiking trails, rough gravel and steps. Since September 2021, you can rent a Mountain Drive wheelchair at Camping Eggmatte on Grimmialp.

During the short beginner's tour, you will encounter all types of terrain on your round and test how your vehicle works: it goes up and down, has sections with tarred surfaces and wider and narrower natural roads/trails.

The highlight of the loop is the Schwenden Chapel in the park of the Hotel Kurhaus Grimmialp. A beautiful place to pause and enjoy the tranquillity of nature. It is also worth taking a look inside the chapel. Wheelchair access is possible. On the way from the chapel you will also come across signs on the Albert Schweitzer trail. They tell about the life of the most famous guest on Grimmialp (only in German).

Note: This tour has only been tested for all-terrain wheelchairs of the "Mountain Drive" brand.
