Are you planning to travel Switzerland and are curious about what is the best travel experiences in Switzerland and what to do in the Swiss Alps? My travel diary on what to do in Switzerland in Summer will provide some inspiration. Grindelwald and the surrounding villages in the Bernese Oberland in Switzerland certainly were on my travel bucket list for quite a while and I was thrilled to finally go there. I had high expectations and Grindelwald not only met but exceeded my expectations in so many ways. This small mountain village is truly one of the best places to visit in Switzerland. In this video I will talk a bit about my first impressions and provide some background and hopefully useful tips for your Switzerland travel to Grindelwald.
Grindelwald Switzerland is one of the most beautiful glacier mountain villages in Switzerland and a popular tourist destination for travelers from around the world. It is also one of best places to stay in Switzerland. What makes Grindelwald such a special travel destination? Its secret may be the tremendous diversity of the landscape, the majestic mountains that provide the backdrop of the glacier village. The most prominent mountain of this unique alpine landscape is of course the Eiger with the famous Eiger North face.
But it is also the diversity of recreational activities amidst of unspoiled nature that makes Grindelwald such an attractive travel destination in Switzerland. In the winter, the surrounding mountains invite you to go down the ski slopes of the First mountain or the Maennlichen and Kleine Scheidegg. In the summer, these slopes turn to beautiful lush green meadows where cows graze throughout the day. The ringing of the cow bells accompanied me throughout my hikes in and around Grindelwald.
You can get to Grindelwald by car and train. The drive from Interlaken takes about 45 minutes. There is a also very convenient train connection to Interlaken via the Bernese Oberland railways. Once you are in Grindelwald, everything is pretty much in walking distance. But there is also an excellent bus transport infrastructure available. Regarding accommodation, there are a lots of hotels, holiday apartments and chalets in Grindelwald. They are not cheap, especially during the high season months in winter and summer. Less expensive options may be a youth hostel and two campsites.
