The famous mountain village of Grindelwald is embedded in a unique Alpine landscape at the foot of the Eiger north face. It is the diversity of the glacier village that makes it so attractive.
Grindelwald’s main ski regions, First, Kleine Scheidegg — Männlichen, and Murren — Schilthorn, are accessible by the Swiss Mountain railways. Skiers can enjoy more than 210 km of groomed slopes at any one of these resorts. A total of 30 ski lifts allows skiers to ski at altitudes of up to 2,500 m/8,202 ft. Grindelwald offers unique skiing experiences especially that of the Lauberhorn slope which was popularized by the World Cup ski circus. Over the mountains between Grindelwald, Wengen & Lauberhorn, and there’s no stopping winter sports enthusiasts.
THE MOST MODERN TERMINAL IN THE ALPS – The brand-new state-of-the-art terminal (Grindelwald Terminal), with direct railway connection in Grindelwald, is the heart of the V-Cableway. The tri-cable gondola Eiger Express to the Eiger Glacier and the 10-person aerial gondola to Männlichen start here. The terminal also offers a shopping centre with top international brands, quality Swiss products and a sports shop. The Eiger Express, which transports you from Grindelwald Terminal to the station Eigergletscher in 15 minutes, guarantees a spectacular gondola ride complete with stunning views of the north face of the Eiger. Once at the destination, the Panoramahalle delivers incredible views of the mountain landscape of the Bernese Oberland.
Even the journey to Eigergletscher on the ultra-modern tri-cable aerial cableway is memorable. Savor the outlook from one of 44 cabins (each seating 26) and marvel at the mighty north face of the Eiger from close quarters. A train now runs directly from Interlaken Ost to Grindelwald terminal, base station for the Eiger Express cableway. This one simple change cuts the journey time to Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe (and the ski slopes) by 47 minutes, giving you more time to explore this spectacular world of mountains.
The Jungfrau experience includes traveling to Europe’s highest railway station at an altitude of 2,061 m/6,762 ft called Kleine Scheidegg. From there you take the cogwheel train to the summit of the Jungfrau at 3,454 m/11,332 ft from where you will have spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and on a clear day can see into Germany and France. And looking west you will see the largest Glacier of Europe, the Aletsch Glacier. As one of the Bernese Oberland’s ultimate excursions, the Jungfraujoch is truly an unforgettable experience for visitors.
Finally, your hotel cannot be any closer to the Grindelwald Train Station. You will have direct access to the Swiss Rail system for convenient day trip excursions to Interlaken, Lauberhorn and beyond!
Lucerne, the gateway to central Switzerland, sited on Lake Lucerne, is embedded within an impressive mountainous panorama. Thanks to its attractions, its attractive shopping and the beautiful lakeside setting, the town is a destination for many travel groups and individuals on their journey through central Switzerland. Complete with gable paintings, the covered, medieval Chapel Bridge forms the centerpiece of Lucerne’s townscape and is considered to be one of the oldest, covered wooden bridges in Europe. A further landmark of the town is the Museggmauer, a wall which, with the exception only of one of its towers, has been preserved in its original, well-fortified state.
Historic houses decorated with frescoes line the picturesque town squares as they do the ‘Weinmarkt’ square in the car-free old town. Lucerne is a city of town squares and churches. The Jesuit church dating from the 17th century is regarded as Switzerland’s first sacral Baroque building and the twin towers of the Hofkirche form an integral part of the townscape. The figure of a dying lion which was hewn from the face of rock in remembrance of the heroic death of Swiss guards killed during an attack on the Tuileries in 1792 is one of the best-known monuments in Switzerland. And with its 112-metre-long Bourbaki panorama, Lucerne possesses one of the world’s few maintained, mammoth circular paintings.
