Travel through Switzerland; Grindelwald detour?

by 59304001

Hi all
I'll be travelling from Paris to Zurich mid-September, most likely by train. I only have a few days in total before flying to London from Zurich. I am told Grindelwald is lovely and would consider breaking the travel to stay a night there if that is practical. Grateful for any ideas or suggestions on how best to get there, where to stay, etc.

I fully afree that Grindelwald is a nice resort. It is rather large, has all the amenities that a modern taveller needs (hotels in all categories, supermarkets, gastronomy - but still has preserved its character. If you like it a little smaller and cosier, choose nearby Muerren. Both èéaces have lovely youth hostels, a good place to meet people.
How to get there? Best to take the TGV from Paris to bern, then the hourly fast train from Bern to Interlaken Ost, and finally the narrow-gauge train to Grindelwald or Lauterbrunnen (for Muerren).
You will love it, Richard

If you go there and only stay one night then make sure you are there before sunset as the mountains change colours and it's very beautiful. If budget travelling I recommend the official youth hostel (24 hrs access) as it is up the hill with a great view (there is a bus) compared to the backpackers down in the valley.
In order to avoid going all the way back to Bern when continuing to Zurich you may consider one of there two options:
1. train back to Interlaken Ost, then take another narrow gauge train over the Brünig Pass to Lucerne and then to Zürich
2. take the postbus over the " Grosse Scheidegg" to Meiringen and there the train over Brünig to Lucerne (it's a very lovely option which may cost extra but in good weather it's also very beautiful.

Just got back from 7 days in Murren. I visited Grindelwald and would choose Murren over Grindelwald. Murren is more scenic and has less tourists (also - no cars). Murren is on a 2000 ft cliff over looking the valley and is also cooler. However, either one is nice.

Rule #1 - Up before sunrise. You take a chance that the clouds could move in at late morning. If you're in Murren, get up at sunrise, take the vernicular train up to Allmendhubel (5 mins) and then take the "Northface trail" towards Schiltalp and then back to Murren (2.5 hours). It is a novice trail and has an incredible view. In Schiltalp, you should be able to look up the mountain at the Schilthorn (check for clouds). Once back in Murren you can take the cable car (25 mins) up to Schiltorn. It is a breathtaking view (if there are no clouds). We spent a couple of hours up there and had a hot chocolate in the revolving restaurant. 30 minutes later you are back in Murren.

I would travel back to Zurich via Lucerne. We spent a day there but at least spend a couple of hours. You can check you bags at the station and wander the city. Must see -- the Lion of Lucerne (15 min walk from train station). Visit the tourist office there in the train station for a map. The city can be walked in 30 minutes.

We also took a break between trains in Bern. We spent 2 hours but wished we had 3. We checked our bags in lockers in the train station, got a walking map from the tourist office the train station and set off. Across town from the train station is the 'Bear Pit'. I know it has historical significance but it is a couple of bears in a sunked cage, ala 1960's zoos. I wished I had skipped the bear pit and visited the Einstein museum. We visited on Saturday and it was market day -- very colorful.

Travel Tips for Grindelwald

Winter Spell

by sandysmith

The snow scenes in Grindelwald come straight from a Christmas card scene don't you think! I love to see the snow on the fir trees. This was taken somewhere on the train journey en route back down to Grindelwald - probably around Alpiglen -having been up to the Jungfraujoch.

Walk where someone else isn't!

by cjohnson99

Kleine Sheidegg to Wengen with no planned route! Invest in the Switzerland regional topographic hiking maps and the Kümmerly + Frey hiking maps, which are excellent but only use as a guideline towards your own walk. When you are on the ground, follow signposts for your destination, in this case, Wengen, but always take the route which seems to be the longest (as is). That way you'll always be out as long as you like!

return to K Scheidegg at about 1.00pm

by dabidc

What a difference four hours makes to the number of people at the station.

Notice the St Bernard Dog and its owner are still there.They are at the lower right hand corner of the photo.

Elavation of K. S. is 2061 m and it feels positively tropical after the cold on the mountain top.

Eigergletscher

by globetrott

Eigergletscher is the name of the 1st station of Jungfraubahn after Kleine Scheidegg and from there you may hike a small mountain-path down to Alpiglen (2:50h) and finally to Grindelwald (+ 4:00 h)
from Eigergletscher you may also walk down to Wengen within 5 hours (or 2:20h to Wengeralp).
Just a few hundred meters past the station Eigergletscher the Jungfraubahn will go on INSIDE the mountain for the rest of the journey to Jungfraujoch, and there will be 2 more short stops of about 10 minutes each, where you may get out and take a look through giant windows.

Jungfraujoch - "Top of Europe"

by globetrott

The Jungfraubahn takes you up to Jungfraujoch, the highest train-station in Europe - it is also called "Top of Europe" This train is the most expensive in Switzerland and going up there makes ONLY sense in perfect weather-conditions !! The trainstation is built inside the mountain and so the trains may run all year long.
From the station you may walk through various tunnels to the points of interest :
1)The Sphinx-viewpoint in a height of 3571 meters. There is a cocktail-lounge and a shop for clocks and a terrace for visitors around all of the building.
2)The Ice-palace with various ice-sculptures
3)a small museum of the Jungfraubahn
4)various restaurants, gift-shops and an e-mail-terminal
5)the gate to the glacier, where you may hike to Moenchsjochhuette, go skiing or ride with the sledge-dogs.
