Grindelwald, an authentic mountain village
Located in the heart of the Alps at the foot of the Eiger mountain, Grindelwald truly lives up to the image of a pretty mountain village. Visitors love the traditional wooden chalets, shops and ski rental outlets, as well as the impressive natural setting and welcoming atmosphere of the resort.
A resort with links to neighbouring ski areas
Thanks to ample connections with Wengen and Jungfrau region resorts, Grindelwald offers the chance to enjoy over 200 km of groomed slopes, 30 km of cross-country trails and toboggan runs. Beginners can get some skiing practice in on the village centre slopes close to the ski equipment hire shops. Grindelwald’s own ski terrain is called “First”, in honour of the first chairlift to enter service in the world.
Good to know: attend the Lauberhorn ski races in January
At the same time each year, Wengen (the neighbouring resort) hosts the Ski World Cup Lauberhorn races, an event as spectacular as it is famous. Make sure you don’t miss it!
What is there to do in Grindelwald?
For non-skiing visitors, there are plenty of activities available: ice-skating on a natural or artificial rink, curling, train rides to Jungfraujoch, Europe's highest railway station (3,454 metres). The train also stops at a high-altitude restaurant which boasts unrestricted views over the peaks encircling Grindelwald. This resort at the “Top of Europe” is the ideal place for skiing and discovering breathtaking landscapes.
An unforgettable holiday for sure provided that you hire the right equipment. So, head straight to one of the Skiset shops located at the foot of the slopes for all your ski rental needs.
