ABOUT GRINDELWALD

The classic Swiss village of Grindelwald is nestled in South-Central Switzerland’s Jungfrau Region in the Bernese Oberland (Highlands). 

Renowned for its jaw-dropping scenic beauty and year-round adventure sports, the small village sits dramatically in the shadow of three of Switzerland's most famous and monumental mountain peaks – the Eiger, the Moench, and the Jungfrau. 

Explore 3 amazing ski areas Grindelwald First, Grindelwald Wengen, and Muerren Schilthorn.

Enjoy iconic, utterly amazing Swiss Alps mountain skiing and scenery, lunch at a lofty mountain hut restaurant, and enjoy fun apres-ski and warm village charm back in town.

OTHER WINTER ACTIVITIES: Per Powderhound: “Jungfrau has more non-ski activities than most ski areas in the world.” Big Pintenfritz is one of the longest toboggan runs in the World at over 9 miles; the town of Interlaken for a day trip is a short 30 min. train ride away.  Cross country skiing through the famous, picturesque Lauterbrunnen valley.  See more info on the FAQ.
