Intro

Grindelwald is considered to be one of Switzerland’s most popular travel destinations. The Gletscherdorf resort makes for an ideal starting point for excursions across the Jungfrau region as well as the entire Bernese Oberland. What’s more, from Grindelwald you’ll be able to enjoy direct views of the imposing Eiger north face.

Grindelwald at a glance

This is Grindelwald

Grindelwald can be found in the German-speaking part of Switzerland, in the Jungfrau region of the Bernese Oberland. Its location at the foot of the Eiger, its proximity to the glaciers and the varied excursions and experiences available all make Grindelwald a top travel destination.

Discover Grindelwald

While strolling through this village with its traditional wooden houses, you’ll feel the presence of the Eiger wherever you go: as many of the village’s hotels, restaurants and cafés are named after the famous mountain. And this should come as no surprise, since the backdrop of the Swiss Alps really is quite spectacular here. Discover the wild glacier canyon and its “spiderweb” – a walkable net stretched across the width of the canyon that offers visitors a unique perspective. Or enjoy the mountain air on the beautiful Bussalp. The «Big Pintenfritz», one of the longest toboggan runs in Europe, passes through here. 

Jungfraujoch

The Jungfraujoch, at 3,454 metres up, is the most spectacular mountain railway station in the Alps. From up here, you’ll be able to enjoy direct views of the UNESCO World Heritage site, the monumental Aletsch Glacier. Marvel at the far-reaching views from the glacier platform, experience the Ice Palace, and immerse yourself in the gripping history of the Jungfrau Railway. The best photo spot: the Eismeer station. Start your unforgettable mountain adventure by taking the Eiger Express from Grindelwald Terminal.

Grindelwald First

The First aerial cableway in Grindelwald takes you up to the First, a mountain that offers plenty of adventure. Venture onto the Cliff Walk to the First View vantage platform for panoramic views of the Bernese Alps. With the First Flyer or First Glider, passengers hurtle or glide through the air, supported by steel cables. Alternatively: you can speed down into the valley on a mountain cart or scooter bike – or in winter with a snowboard or skis. The hike to the jewel of the Alps, the Bachalpsee, is absolutely recommended.

Around Grindelwald

A popular destination for a day out here is a gondola ride on the Männlichen. The Royal Walk really does live up to its name, offering the best views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, as well as Grindelwald and the Lauterbrunnen Valley. From the Männlichen, hiking trails and winter sports slopes lead to the Kleine Scheidegg. The ideal starting point for hikes to the Grindelwald glaciers is Alp Pfingstegg with its summer toboggan run.

Experience Grindelwald for less

With the Guest Card, available when you stay one night or more, you’ll be able to use the local bus free of charge and will receive discounts on cable cars and mountain railways. The campsite, the youth hostel and the Naturfreundehaus are all affordable options and also ideally located.
