Village of Grindelwald

Climbers and visitors from all over the world come together in Grindelwald – what may at first sight seem out of place proves to have things in common: after all, the Japanese Direttissima is one of the most well-known routes up the North Face of the Eiger. Grindelwald, the village of the Eiger and its glaciers, is a lively, diverse place where active holidays are guaranteed to be a success.

In winter, with the First and Kleine Scheidegg–Männlichen skiing areas, Grindelwald becomes a snow sports paradise catering for all abilities. And there's plenty for non-skiers to do here, too. Grindelwald boasts numerous sledging runs and 70 kilometres of winter footpaths to provide fun in the snow for young and old. The longest sledging run in Europe stretches for 15 kilometres from the Faulhorn via the Bussalp down to Grindelwald.

 

If you want yet more action in the evening, you can round off your day in one of Grindelwald's bars or night clubs.
