  1. Destination
  2. More about Grindelwald


This small village in the Bernese Oberland district of the Swiss Alps is a destination for mountaineers and those looking to get away from the world, if only for a few days. The remote village is surrounded by mountains and not much else, but what it lacks in museums or architecture it more than makes up for in natural beauty. Getting into Grindelwald is best done either by driving from the bigger nearby cities or by rail into Grindelwald Railway Station, which is conveniently located right in the center of the city.

Grindelwald is perhaps most known as the easiest gateway for the trail leading up the famous Eiger Mountain. This climb is an iconic and popular endeavor, often performed by climbers who arrive in this small village from all over the world. When not climbing mountains and taking in the breathtaking views, it’s possible to take some relaxing picnic days on the waterfront of the Bachalpsee Lake, or take part in skiing at one of the many ski resorts scattered throughout the village.

There’s a lot more to see and do in Grindelwald, and the best way to discover what else this city has to offer in terms of attractions, landmarks, and hotels is by exploring the interactive map on this page.
