Next to the Eiger Express

You'll be just a short walk from the speedy new Eiger Express Gondola that goes up to the Eiger Glacier station. The Grindelwald Grund Station is only a couple of minutes in the other direction, so you're in a great place to explore the whole area.

Comfortable and welcoming accommodation

The lounge, bar and grill are perfect for grabbing a drink or a bite to eat and being so close to town, exploring the local restaurants in the evening is easy.

Grindelwald

Summer holidays in Grindelwald are really special. Forget about dark wizards and wands – the real Grindelwald is magic for altogether different reasons. The village looks up to the Lower Grindelwald Glacier and is watched over by a wall of peaks, including the 4,000-metre-plus Mönch and the looming north face of the Eiger. Walks in Grindelwald range from Alpine epics like the Eiger Trail to family-friendly rambles and getting from A to B is easy, thanks to the gondolas and trains that wind their way up to improbable heights. Back in Grindelwald, sunny terraces are laid out for marveling at the huge mountains that kicked off the 19th-century golden age of alpinism.  

Explore Grindelwald in the summer

A gondola connects Grindelwald to First, on the scenic Schwarzhorn mountain north of the village. It's a haven for summer activities and incredible mountain views. Grab a bite to eat with views over peaks and glaciers, and dare to fly down the ziplines - four friends at a time can whizz down the First Flyer, or fly like an eagle on the First Glider. Release the kids onto the alpine playground or mountain kart tracks and if you have a good head for heights, take on the Cliff Walk. Keen hikers can set off for the mountain lake of Bachalpsee and on to the ridgetop Alpine gardens and mountain station of Schynige Platte before returning by cog railway and train. Or, head towards the Grosse Scheidegg mountain pass, a great spot to enjoy sunset.

Jungfraujoch: visit the top of Europe

Grindelwald is the gateway to the Jungfraujoch – the seat between two of the highest mountains in the Bernese Alps. The views are even more impressive in the summer. To get there, catch the Eiger Express mountain lift to the Eiger Gletscher station, which sits on the mountain ridge between Grindelwald and Wengen, and then hop on a train to the highest train station in Europe. On arrival, you’ll be treated to panoramas of the vast Aletsch Glacier - the longest in Europe. It's easy to spend a few hours of your holiday up here, admiring the views of the glacier from inside as well as out - take a walk through the Ice Palace for an inside look at this wonderful world of ice.

Sightseeing in Grindelwald: Interlaken and the lakes

The arrival of the railway transformed Grindelwald from a mountain climbing base to the Jungfrau region’s biggest summer holiday destination. Catch the train down the valley to Interlaken, the adventure capital of Switzerland. From here, you can wander the half-timbered houses of the old town, jump aboard a glass-roofed boat for a cruise on the brilliant turquoise waters of Lake Thun and Lake Brienz (a perfect summer holiday activity), or take the funicular up to Harder Kulm to admire the lakes from above. Paragliding is a favorite activity here, too.

Mountain adventures on family holidays in Grindelwald

Grindelwald First is for high-adrenalin family fun, while the Pfingstegg area specializes in more laid-back mountain adventures – lazy zip lines that loop through the trees and a summer toboggan. There are also lots of mountain biking trails in the summer around Grindelwald, plus canyoning routes, adventure playgrounds, and an indoor rope park. Another lift goes up to Männlichen, where there’s a treetop walk and a playground themed around Lieselotte, the beloved storybook cow.
