Grindelwald Panorama

Grindelwald City Breaks

Grindelwald, the "glacier village", is an extremely popular tourist destination in both summer and winter seasons.

This beautiful village is found nestled in a green hollow between the mighty Eiger and Wetterhorn mountains, making it the largest ski resort in the region. The mountains and glacier provide scenic lookout points and endless activities that are popular with those looking for adventurous holidays. Highlights include skiing, tobogganing, hiking and climbing. Alternatively, take the train through the mountains and stop at Europe's highest railway station.

Every year Grindelwald hosts the World Snow Festival in January. Throughout the week, international teams sculpt and carve figures from metre-high snow blocks. Other events include the annual World Snow Bikes Championship in February and the Spring Mountain Festival in June/July.

If you are looking to explore more of Switzerland, then we can also offer Berne city breaks and hotels in Gstaad.
