Grindelwald Switzerland

Alluring, historic, very pretty and year round resort, Grindelwald is the largest in the region of Jungfrau and a peculiar rural character is to be found out of this incredible village. Situated under the craggy impressive trio of the Eiger, Wetterhorn and Mettenberg, the resort offers easy access to explore spectacular glacier close to and has in keeping vast network of cable-cars leading up to various long- and short-distance trails throughout the whole region. Provided the fact Grindelwald is among one of the oldest mountain resorts in Europe, it offers excellent skiing amenities, but also abundance of hiking trails, which places this destination in the top choices list of non-skiers, as well. What strengthens the charm of Grindelwald is that it combines a grand rocky barrier with bizarre country appeal - represented by pretty dwellings and fields planted with maple and fruit trees. One of the paramount attractions of the resort is the "Festival International des Neiges", held in the heart of the village, which brings together several teams from different countries. Within a week they make various snow and ice sculptures, carved to perfection.
