Grindelwald, a place where mountaineers and visitors from all over the world have one thing in common: passion for “Japan Direttissima”, one of the most famous ski routes
The hospitable mountain village of Grindelwald (1034 m) lies in the Berner Oberland – and acts as the stage for a wonderful drama.
The set is composed of the ice capped peaks of the Wetterhorn, Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau, with visitors and tourists as the leading actors… What’s more, there are endless pistes and runs for skiers, snowboarders and sledgers in winter, a giant network of hiking trails in summer, and an almost infinite variety of leisure activities.
There are countless ways to explore this fascinating mountain world, through sports and activities or by adopting a gentler, more relaxing approach.
You can engage in extreme mountaineering, or simply enjoy the view… A particularly amazing experience is the trip to the Jungfraujoch, the `Top of Europe’, at 3,454 m Europe’s highest railway station right in the heart of the UNESCO world natural heritage site.
Covering an area of 824 square kilometers, the Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch UNESCO World Heritage Site contains nearly all of the Bernese High Alps, with their monumental rock massifs, in the Cantons of Berne and Valais. Around 90 percent of this area is covered with rocks and ice. The Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch World Heritage Site stands for the splendid natural beauty of the Alps. At its heart lies the impressive Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau rock massif and the glacial landscape surrounding the Great Aletsch Glacier.
