Getting to Grindelwald from Zurich

by denisegravatt

Hi, I am planning a trip in February to Grindelwald for 6 people and we need to get from Zurich airport to Grindelwald. Is there any kind of shuttle service or transport company for hire? We have excess luggage and concerned that the train may be too difficult for some of the elders. I understand that we don't need a car in the town so we are just looking for a ride to and from the airport.
Many thanks!
Denise

it would be the best to contact your hotel and ask them, for a party of 6 it might make sense to organize a taxi and the hotel should know the best deals !
From Zurich you eighter have to change train in Luzern or in Bern and then again in Interlaken-Ost, so that you be quite a struggle.

There is a direct train from Zürich airport to Interlaken West every hour. There you need to change to the train to Grindelwald. In Zürich you can take the luggage troley from the arrivals all the way down to the railway platform, and in Interlaken West the transfer is just across the platform. (But pay attention to getting in the right part of the train, as that train is split en route)
So it might not be that complicated to make this journey by train.

If you are flying Swiss you might be able to check your luggage through to your final distination. You then travel yourself to Grindelwald by train and pick up your luggage there. Some hotels will even do this for you, so you better contact the place you are staying.

a little correction I think :
eighter the train is going to stop first in Interlaken WEST and then its going through to Interlaken OST, and there you may change directely to the train to Grindelwald, or it stops at the WEST-station only, in that case you have to take another train just in order to get to Interlaken OST and change there again to the train to Grindelwald.
It is a matter of different size in the track:
The train-track from Luzern over the Bruenig-pass has a different size and it ends in Interlaken OST.
The trains from Zurich arrive via the ordinary tracks through Bern and end at Interlaken West and mostly also Interlaken Ost.
BUT I am quite sure that the direct trains to Grindelwald will never start in Interlaken WEST !

Thanks to you both for your quick reply!

Correction, it is indeed Interlaken Ost. I have to pay more attention. AFAIK all direct trains from Zürich go all the way to Interlaken Ost, and connect with the narrow gauge trains to Grindelwald.

Another tip: The direct trains from Zürich to Interlaken - Ost reverse twice en route. The last part of the route (byond Bern) has the best scenery when you sit on the left side...

Travel Tips for Grindelwald

Some facts and history

by Manara

Tourism provides 90% of the income for this village of 4000 inhabitants.
While the Swiss Alps were already visited by many holiday-makers in the summer, Grindelwald was the first place to attract also winter vacationers. At the beginning, in 1888, they enjoyed ice-skating, curling and sleigh riding. In 1891 they started skiing as well, and a few years later they discovered ice-hockey and bobsleigh. There were 10 hotels in Grindelwald in 1889: they became 33 by 1914.
Not bad at all for a village that until 1860 did not even have a proper road! The railway that reaches Grindelwald from Interlaken was built in 1890, and the cogwheel railway from Grindelwald to Kleine Scheidegg was inaugurated in 1893. The railway, partly inside the Eiger, from Kleine Scheidegg to the Jungfraujoch was completed in 1912.

Sustenpass

by robertgaz

The high alpine road to the Sustenpass is one of the Bernese Oberland's most scenic road trips.

It's on the road between Interlaken and Wassen just before Andermatt and it twists and turns to a height of 2,259m.

Saegistalsee - high above Iseltwald

by globetrott

Saegistalsee is a small mountain-lake in the hight of 1937 meters above sea-level and you will pass by it when you hike from Schynigge Platte to Faulhorn - at about half of the way between Weberhuette (read more about it in my restaurant-tip!) and the Faulhorn.
I could not find an official walking-path to this lake, but you may see it even from a long distance when walking to Faulhorn.
Saegistalsee is high above Iseltwald, BUT the steep rocks around the lake will not allow you to walk down directely from Seagistalsee to Iseltwald.

The cableway to Pfingstegg

by Manara

This tip is not about something I have done, but about a thing I wish to do the next time I go to Grindelwald.
There is another cableway in Grindelwald, which goes the opposite direction with respect to the one to First. The Pfingsteggbahn is not long (just over one kilometre) and the altitude difference with respect to the village is about 360 metres, but this is enough to see the surrounding panorama from a differente perspective.
My plan, however, is not just to get to Pfingstegg and have a meal at the restaurant. There is a hiking path, here in the lower part of the Mettenberg mountain, going to Stieregg, a vantage point to admire the glaciers Grindelwaldgletcher, Eismeer and Fischerwand. The hike from Pfingstegg is supposed to take one hour.

Eismeer - a station in a height of 3160 meters

by globetrott

EISMEER is the name of the 3rd station of the Jungfraujoch-bahn and it is the one with the most interesting view in my opinion, because you may see the permanent glaciers of the Eiger from a short distance, standing inside the mountain, just looking out through 2 giant windows.
There is no ordinary path leading to this glaciers and only extreme mountain-climbers will ever get into that area with a height of about 3000 meters above sea-level.
You will stop also at this station for about 10 minutes, you may get outside of the train in order to take pics or talk to a man about a horse...
