Grindelwald is a mountain village straight out of a fairy tale. Located in the Jungfrau region, the canton of Bern, it has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001. 

The village is surrounded by a huge rock mass of extreme natural beauty, which includes three big mountains that dominate the landscape: Eiger (3970m), Mönch (4107m) and Jungfrau. Although Jungfrau is the tallest out of the three (4158m), its Eiger and its north face that shapes the lives of the local people. The north face of Eiger was considered to be among the most challenging and dangerous ascents, and many lives has been lost of those who tried to conquer it.  Other beautiful mountains are visible from the village, such as Wetterhorn (3692m) and Mattenberg (3104m). During our hikes, we will admire these majestic mountains as well as the ice of the Aletsch glacier, the largest in the Alps. 

Grindelwald is the access point to the Jungfraujoch, Europe’s highest altitude train station at 3454 meters above the sea level. One stop within the tunnel, which was build more than hundred years ago and took 16 years to be completed, offers spectacular views of the glacier and mount Eiger north face, while the summit offers jaw dropping views from the viewing platforms. 

Since December 2020, Grindelwald has been proud to have the most modern cable car in the world, which goes from 937m to 2328m in just 15 minutes. 

Summers are magical in Grindelwald, when you can enjoy all the outdoor activities you can think off: hiking, mountain biking, climbing, via ferrata, paragliding, parachuting, mountain karts, zip lines or trottibikes. In winter the colors change, but its charm remains. Hiking on snowy trails is also possible, being an alternative to skiing and snowboarding, which is practiced a lot here from December to April.

Buzzing with rich flora and fauna, Grindelwald is a good spot for bird watching in their natural habitat. While hiking, you can see not only Swiss cows with their famous bells, but also spot marmots, sheep, goats and lamas.
