Thaks for your help,
I am considering a first time visit to Grindelwald. Please suggest 3-5 hikes for an experienced hiker. I am especially interested in 4-6 hour hikes with maximum natural sites.
On the Jungfrau train:
Where is the ice castle that I saw on a pbs travel program. I believe it was part of the train ride to the Jungbrau. Station Name?
Are there other stops that you suggest are must-sees?
Is an overnight at the Gleickstien Hut best way to take in everything on the Jungfrau including the hike in to the hut.
high and low temperatures the first week of May?
Will be working in grindelwald this winter and finding it especially hard to find long term accommodation especially with the language barrier. Any help would be greatly appreciated
My family is planning to visit Switzerland in April and we plan to be in grindlewald in the first/second week. Does it snow in April and what are the average temperatures? Kids haven't seen snow so this is important for them. Snow on the ground is great but snowing would be better. Thanks
I am organising a walking trip for 22 people.I would like to know if anyone can advice me on the cheapest option of getting
from Zurich Airport to Grindelwald ,private transfer(minibus) or train.We will be travelling in August.
i want to ask where is the cheapest(yet enjoyable) place to go skiing in interlaken area ?
and this is also my first time skiing, so does the weather condition affect the ski area such as the place is closed etc ? because as far as the weather forecast told me, there will be snow fall on the day i plan to ski. so how is it?
What can we expect to find in Grindelwald in January--weather (throughout the Bernese Oberland), amount of snow, conditions (can we do a bit of hiking, and where are easy/short hikes)? Also plan to sledge and hear that easy run from Grindelwald First is best bet, but are there other easy runs? Thinking of going to Murren or Wengen to walk around a bit--which is recommended? Thank you!
Please can anybody tell me what time the supermarket will close on SATURDAY JULY 7th? WE arrive at about 16.00 and want to know if there will be time to shop.
I am going to visit Interlaken and Grindelwald coming week for three days with my friends. Our agenda is to visit Jungfrau. I know there are 2 different routes to go up and both are awesome. But I came to know that it is also possible to walk down from Jungfrau (i mean without train). I want to know is it really possible? and how much time would it take? also the travel cost for round-trip through Jungfraujoch is very expensive, so we are thinking to take one-way ticket from Interlaken to Jungfrau and on return walk down ourselves.
Please give your opinion if its possible or not?
can anyone tell me how long it takes to get from munich to salzburg austria and from salzburg to grindlewald by train? and how difficult is the trip. thanks
we are a couple looking for a chalet in or around grindelwald at a small budget of around CHF100/night. our top priority are excellent views and if possible decent connectivity to a nearby station or a bus stop. we are absolutely ok with staying a little away from the central town.
have gone through interhome without much luck. would appreciate if someone could share their experiences / recommend some options.
Which way is the most scenic way via Grindelwald or Via Lauterbrunnen?
Also can you get off the train at Kleine Scheidegg and catch a later train down the mountain?
Thanks for your response.
I know I am asking so far in advance ie July 2011 but having just returned from Interlaken and visited Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen hubby and I looking to go to one of these areas but rather than staying in a hotel are looking for a mid range priced apartment. Obviously would like it quite centrally. Any suggestions. Looked on TA and the Jasmine Apartments seem to get good reviews but was a bit pricey. Thanks.
Is there a COOP with self-serve in Grindelwald ?
Or could any expert advice those economical eateries in Grindelwald.
Thanks in advance
Two of us are going to Grindelwald, and other places in Switzerland, in mid-July before most Swiss go on holiday on July 17. We are wondering whether we need to book accommodations ahead of time or if we'll be able to find space in mid-level hotels or inns when we get there.
Which hikes do you recommend, aside from the Kleine Sheidegg hike to Lauterbrunnen? Oh, and while we're talking about that hike, can we do the hike and get back to Grindelwald via train all in one day? Any tips are welcome. Thanks.
We will have a small group of 14 persons wanting to stay in Grindelwald for 3 nights from 10 May. My favourite hotel, Hotel Bernerhof is closed so any suggestions for a similar hotel at Grindelwald that would be open? This is for 2011. I know it's a long way off, fortunately, as it is amazing what is booked out for this year. Makes you wonder if there was a financial recession.
we have never been to the Alps or a ski resort before and will not be skiing.
we are are coming to Grindelwald for 3 nights as i have never seen snowy mountains! we are travelling with our 3 month old baby and will be using a baby carrier some of the time so she will be strapped to us but also keen to bring the buggy pram so it she is sleeping we can still go out to eat.
is a standard buggy okay aroung the resort town? are there pavements or cleared areas or are we unrealitic to think we could push her around a snowy resort town.urgent advice please as we fly this friday
We are spending a very short time in Europe in September, travelling in a camper van (2 adults, 3 kids) and trying to see as much as we can. We will only be able to spend 2 days in the Alps and were thinking of Grindelwald as you can stay there in the van. Being Aussie kids, they are desperate to see and touch snow and throw snowballs! What is the best way to reach the snow in mid September? What is the best value for money gondola/cable car/train ride if we only have one or two days in Switzerland? Is Grindelwald the best place to go to enjoy our very short stay in the country? Any other tips or suggestions? Thanks
We are going for our first trip to Switzerland - a seven day trip & we will be based in Grindelwald. We want to explore and enjoy this and the nearby areas rather than travelling to all corners of Switzerland during the trip (an exception might be Zermat since my friend is keen to visit it).
I believe the best travel option is the Swiss Card which will cover the return trip from Zurich airport to Grindelwald and give us 50% discount on all other fare. Any ideas if this is the most economical thing to do?
Also is it cheaper to buy items like the Swiss Card and Swiss Pass outside Switzerland? We heard that to promote tourism, lower rates/discount is given if purchased outside Switzerland.
I would be grateful for any advise and help with this.
