Destination guide

There's nothing cheesy about this Swiss getaway

Ever dreamed of life in a quaint alpine village? Then look no further. Lying in the shadows of the north face of the Eiger, the charming village of Grindelwald is as popular in winter as it is during the warm summer months. Famous for its great skiing and hiking opportunities, there's also something here for those who prefer to fondue rather freestyle down the piste. Get your Swiss adventure off to a great start and book a Grindelwald vacation rental within easy reach of the cozy bars and taverns in the village center and the mountain trails.

Things to do

By Gorge, it's Grindelwald's Glacier

Switzerland certainly has the wow factor. A well-placed Grindelwald vacation rental means you'll have great views as well as access to the village. The Glacier Gorge Grindelwald is a glacier canyon formed by the River Lutschine thundering through it for millions of years. Plunging down 300 feet this gorge is the ideal place to mug up on the geology of the Alps as you trundle through its many stone tunnels and wooden walkways. For something a little more gentle, head back to the village and check out Museum Grindelwald and explore the alpine village's history.


Climb every mountain—Grindelwald, the gateway to the Alps

A Grindelwald vacation is a game of 2 halves. In the summer, grab the hiking boots or mountain bikes and climb every mountain. But come winter, under the steely gaze of the Eiger's north face, it's time to throw yourself down the slopes in some of the finest ski resorts in Switzerland. But Grindelwald is not just for the active sporty set. You can also sample fine dining in a cozy alpine refuge, take a helicopter flight over the mountains, or learn about local traditions in the village's history museum.


Winter is coming—and there's no snow like Grindelwald snow

If you love snow, you'll find it in spades during a Grindelwald winter. A year-round vacation destination, the seasons are largely split into winter and summer. For ski bunnies, Grindelwald is a dream, promising lashings of the white stuff from November through April. If you're more a fair-weather mountain lover, visit the village during the dry summer months, when wildflowers are in bloom, the sun shines, and temperatures can reach 70 degrees and above. The shoulder seasons of spring and fall are when there's the widest choice of Grindelwald vacation rentals.

Not just for mountain goats—Grindelwald's a hiker's paradise
