Our destination for today is Grindelwald, a village in Switzerland’s Bernese Alps that was a mountain in the 1980s. A typical Swiss-style Grindelwald house includes a wide eave, flower boxes, window shutters, and balconies. Tamar Valley is visible from the settlement and encircled by glassy lakes.
What is Grindelwald popular for?
Mountain climbers can experience the top of the Eiger mountain on its north face. In the winter, you can ski in Grindelwald, and in the summer, you can hike. Grindelwald’s Glatscherschlucht features paths, waterfalls, and limestone walls. The village, however, is touristy and crowded during the winter holiday season, especially on Christmas day.
What to do in Grindelwald?
- Bachalpsee, lying at an altitude of 2,265 meters, is a beautiful spot with reflective waters, grassy banks, and a mountain backdrop. When the skies are clear, the water reflects the Schreckhorn, Wetterhorn, and Finsteraarhorn best for postcard-quality images.
- Learning cross-country skiing is very easy in winter because there is a trail of seven kilometers that does not pose any risks while downhill skiing.
- In the Grindelwald Museum, you can learn about the village, its heritage, and a fire that devastated Grindelwald at the end of the 19th century.
