You need to take a train from Grindelwald to Meiringen, Postbus to Handegg.

Use the SBB timetable to figure out if you are up for the trip from Grindelwald. It's about 2 hours each way I'm guessing (depending on connections). When are you visiting? I don't think the bus runs until around end of first week in June.

Hello Lili34,

Rockoyster is, as always, quite right, exactly 2hrs 1 minute for arrival. :)
Use his timetable link to check.

Also check this link for information and helpful input:

I believe you're visiting in June, right?! If so you'll have all the connections needed open.

Best,
Steph

Hi Lili34,

Unfortunately, I've never done the ride before, although it has been on my list for a while!

I'm positive that you'll have a quite unique birthday experience there! And an additional motivation for me to go should you share some pictures.. ;)

Best,
Steph
