Booking lodging in summer

by abirome

Two of us are going to Grindelwald, and other places in Switzerland, in mid-July before most Swiss go on holiday on July 17. We are wondering whether we need to book accommodations ahead of time or if we'll be able to find space in mid-level hotels or inns when we get there.

Which hikes do you recommend, aside from the Kleine Sheidegg hike to Lauterbrunnen? Oh, and while we're talking about that hike, can we do the hike and get back to Grindelwald via train all in one day? Any tips are welcome. Thanks.

It's not only the Swiss holidays you have to consider, but the ones of the countries around Switzerland as well. July is high season and unless you're willing to go looking for a hotel for some time or don't care how much you spend, it's a very good idea to prebook.You can chance it if you have a car, but if you have to rely on public transport, prebook.
I well remember once having to go home early from Switzerland because we hadn't prebooked, and we couldn't find anything affordable.

Yes, you need to book in advance because you have chosen a holiday region that is very pipular internationally.

A hike I recommend: from Grindewald take the gondola to First. At the top station you will find the starting point of a number of paths. One of them goes to the Bachalpsee, an amazingly beautiful Alpine lake. Another nice walk is to Grosse Scheidegg, when you get there you can take a bus back to Grindelwald.

You can take the train back to Grindelwald from Lauterbrunnen. You will transfer at Zweil├╝tschinen - this is where the train from Interlaken splits with part going to Lauterbrunnen and part to Grindelwald.

The hike is doable but keep in mind that the lower part is quite steep. The views will be amazing.

Travel Tips for Grindelwald

Hiking paths

by sswagner

Trails and walkways are well marked in Switzerland. The arrows will point out the way to go, and a general time required to make the trip is given. I found these to be accurate. Of course, allow for photo stops, rest stops, eating your lunch, and exploring in general. Trails are in very good condition. There will be a little mud in some places as the snow melts, but I found the trails to be well maintained. In my opinion, these are some of the best walking trails I have encountered so far. The views from the trail, the peace and quiet, and even the good exercise.

Full use of space available.

Grindelwald is a small village with many hotels and shops catering to the tourists, yet even though land is at a premium, there is some agricultural activity in the summer time.

The paths at the east end of the village lead through farm land and and the two interests, those of farming and tourism ,exist side by side.

Buy Jungfrau Region hiking guide by Kummerly+Frey

by cjohnson99

Kummerly+Frey publish a series of hiking books in English and German. One of those is the Jungfrau-Region. They are small, yellow books and you can find them in most shops around the Jungfrau region. I have not yet found an internet site that sells direct.
My favourite hikes? This is just one list:
1. Kleine Sheidegg - Wengen
2. Wengen - Lauterbrunnen
3. Grindelwald wild flower meadows in June
4. Lauterbrunnen - Stechelberg
5. Mannlichen - Grindelwald

Inside the mountain.

by dabidc

Th swiss engineers are to be congratulated for building a rail line inside the mountain.

I have searched enlarged photos of the face of the Eiger for the windows at the first station that allows one to look out over the valley. Alas no windows are visible.

I have not looked for the many ways up the mountain that climbers have used. I only know many died in the process.

books have been written and Movies made yet there is nothing as impressive as standing near the Eiger and viewing the rock face.

Hiking on First

by sandysmith

The main Gondola in Grindelwald takes you up to the hiking region of First...endless hiking opportunities up here for all levels. Easy walks are to the popular reflecting pool of the Bachalpsee with its alpine panorama and to the Grosse Scheidegg in the other direction.....as in this pic. Here you get wonderful views of the Grindelwald glaciers.
