Grindelwald Resort Details

Grinlewald’s setting in the shade of the North face of the Eiger, is one of the most iconic mountains in the world. In the summer the village is alive with mountain climbers and base jumpers, but the winter it’s left to us skiers and snowboarders to enjoy.

It’s an attractive old village, which is one of the best places to view the mountains that surround it. As a consequence the village see’s little sunlight in January.

Many visitors will ski also in Mürren and Wengen when staying here and this is part of the fun. It was the British who bought the railways to part of Switzerland to enable skiing to first start here. Many of the slopes can be reached on single gauge tracks that pick their way up the mountain. A bit of a trek to reach Mürren but worth the effort we think.

We offer a variety of family run hotels, many having been in the same family for generations.
