Holidays to Grindelwald
The pretty mountain village of Grindelwald is a great base for exploring the soaring peaks of the Swiss Alps. Nestled in a fertile valley below the majestic Eiger, Jungfrau, and Monch mountains and a stunning glacier, Grindelwald offers plenty of opportunities for hiking, mountain climbing, skiing, and sightseeing. This is the perfect escape for fresh air fiends and nature lovers.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Grindelwald
Grindelwald is a playground for skiers and snowboarders, with over 160 kilometres of ski runs and 30 lifts. Beginners can take lessons with expert instructors at one of the many ski schools here that offer private and group sessions. Intermediates will find plenty of trails with steep and medium pitches and natural features, and experts can try test their skills on the Eiger Glacier. Visitors on a winter holiday to Grindelwald will also find cross-country trails and groomed walking paths that branch off from the village.
For a unique day trip, take a train ride to Europe’s highest railway station at the Jungfraujoch. Once you reach the top, you can explore a wonderland of snow and ice, or head to the viewing platform to take in stunning scenes of the surrounding mountains and valleys below. There is also an ice palace carved directly into the Aletsch Glacier here that features vaulted rooms, exquisite ice sculptures, and an ice bar.
Visitors will also find plenty to do on a summer holiday to Grindelwald. Once the snow clears on the lower parts of the mountains, over 300 kilometres of hiking trails open up. Stroll through peaceful woodlands, stop for a picnic in one of the meadows awash in colourful wild flowers, or head up the slopes to find incredible vistas over the village and the lush green bowl of the valley. For a bit more action, try mountain biking on the challenging trails, or learn how to navigate glaciers and rocky peaks at the Mountaineering School.
