Grindelwald

This traditional mountain village is set amidst spectacular scenery at the foot of the towering north face of the Eiger. Easy access via mountain train, gondola and cable-car to the ‘Jungfrau’ ski region including the pistes linking Kleine Scheidegg and Männlichen means that you can tackle the challenging Lauberhorn race run, have lunch in Wengen, and be home in time for tea. Or spend the day cruising the long red runs at ‘First’, Grindelwald’s own ski area. Non-skiers have fantastic winter walking possibilities with the non-skiers lift pass, whilst the friendly village has numerous shops, bars and cafés.

New for winter 19/20 is improved access to Männlichen and the ski area.

Grindelwald-Männlichen (GGM)

With the modern gondolas for up to ten people the journey to the top station at 2225 metres above sea level, takes only 19 minutes instead of 30 minutes. The Berner Oberland-Bahnen (BOB) trains now stop at the new Grindelwald Terminal station with the direct link to the new GGM-valley station. With the Männlichen aerial gondola, guests can enjoy improved first part of the new V-Cableway valley station terminal.

 

New for winter 20/21
