Tips from George on Grindelwald

From the slopes at Grindelwald, the views are impressive, you are surrounded by the Eiger, Jungfrau, and the impressive Wetterhorn. So you have to force yourself to watch the slope ahead instead of looking at the views! The ski area is divided into two sides, so you can focus on good snow or sunshine, according to how you feel and your level. And there's plenty to do, even without taking the extended ski pass that takes you up to Wengen. The atmosphere is casual, with no frills, friendly apres ski - just perfect for me and my teenage kids.

Nicest view in Europe

Nice town with lots to do, skiing, hiking, sledging. From the town you can reach the ski area with the train or the gondola and then ski into the different villages of the Jungfrau Region.

Best ski holiday ever!

The village of Grindlewald itself is beautiful and very cozy! You have a swimming pool, sports centre, many shops and the people are very pleasant and very friendly! You must go out in the evening as it is even more beautiful than it is during the day. Pretty lighting but especially the unique atmosphere of the village makes it so cozy! Public transport is really great. The bus drivers and train drivers are really friendly and helpful. On the train iit gets pretty busy but if you take it at a reasonable hour (around 8.30am-09.00uur) its not so bad. The gondolas can get pretty packed too! Once on the slopes, you can immediately feel the freedom! The view is phenomenal! You hardly ever have to queue for a ski lift. 10min is probably the max. At lunch you have a choice of restaurants on the slopes or you can simply go to the village of Wengen and enjoy lunch in this pretty resort. The restaurants are typical Swiss and therefore very cozy! You can often ski to your door. The gondolas are a bit busier.

Super Swiss resort

Swiss food and drink is heavenly and the views from the slopes in Grindelwald are just oustanding! Our kids loved it and we could even give them a bit of freedom (they are 12 and 14) and let them ski alone as all the runs finish back in the resort.

More than just skiing

There is so much to see and do here - everything is pretty and charming and packed with Swiss character. The choice of skiing is great, you can go in any direction and find superb skiing. The ice falls are really worth visiting too. Lovely romantic place to spend ski holidays with your other half.
