We took the cable car up after driving the 1hr 45min from Zurich, the car park is free. We then took the cable car up to the start of a 1hr 30 minuite hike to the bridge. The hike is very steep and you need...More

Anyone who would describe the “walk” from the cable car station to Trift Bridge is simply irresponsible. It is a steep, mountainous, never-ending, rocky climb, almost entirely uphill with barely a path. Loose rocks add to the difficulty. At times, expect to be climbing up...More

We started from the cable car starting point. Which is easy to find by car. Just drive towards Gadmen. From there we split up. The two youngest 8 and 15 took the cable car up. And the two adults and our 17 yo hiked there...More

The Trift Brücke is worthwhile visiting, the view and experience is fantastic. Yet, everybody should bear in mind that you have to go up about 3 km a very small alpine trail, which would take around 1.5 hours from the upper station of the Trift...More

Make sure that you take cable gondola from Gadmen (bus 172 from Innertkirchen). That saves a lot of time (2 hours one way at least). Gondola cars fit only 8 people each so buy your tickets online. If you just arrive there hoping that tickets...More

Bridge is well engineered and so nice to walk across with family as well as dogs. Very unique experience I highly recommend. It can be super busy. As you take cable car up to start hike plan in advance (only 8 ppl at a time)...More

At first, there are at least two options how to reach the bridge. You can walk the whole way or you can use the triftbahn (from the triftbahn station to the triftbahn mountain station) and an easy hike. A starting point should be the triftbahn...More

I went the weekend before the Triftbahn opened for the season, so I knew that I would have to hike the whole way from the station up to the bridge. I drove down early in the morning from Germany and easily found the location. Even...More
