Grindelwald's mountains are truly beyond compare. Located 1050 m up at the foot of the mighty Eiger-Mönch-Jungfrau massif, in the summer months this is a great place to go walking or mountain biking. It also makes a great base for hiking tours in the High Alps and countless other activities.
It is not by chance that Switzerland is sometimes referred to as Europe's biggest reservoir. Indeed, it is hard to imagine any picture of Switzerland without the shimmering blue of its countless lakes, both large and small.
In the run-up to the 2006 World Cup, Switzerland ran an advertising campaign in which handsome young men promised women abandoned by their football-loving husbands an unforgettable holiday in the Alps. Well, ladies, the European Championship is but a year away!
