Grindelwald for 1 day

by Bimalaggarwal

I would staying in Grindelwald for 1 night and I would llike to do some sight-seeing in and around Grindelwald itself.
(No travelling to Jungfraujoch, Mürren, Schlithorn etc. as this is already done before).

Please suggest the best. Are there good waterfalls near Grindelwald ?
How can I reach the Botanical Alpine Flower garden on the Schynige Platte ? How long would it take to reach there?

Thanks for the info.

I had already checked grindelwald.com and now I have also visited Sabsi's page.
This has widened my horizon for travel ot Grindelwald.

My concern is that we will have our 15 months boy with us and his buggy too.So we will avoid
long trekkings/ sports etc. We are interested in some local sight-seeing (churches/waterfalls/museums etc) in and around Grindelwald,
and try some good local food/wine there.
Any further tips are most welcome.

About the Alpine Garden you can check the website www.schynigeplatte.ch.
My suggestion for a great day out is to take the cableway to First. That side of the mountain is wonderful. If you decide not to go all the way up, and stop in one of the intermediate stations you are anyway sure of a beautiful scenery. The cableway is easy to board and you should not have any problems with the child.

Did you see Giessbachfälle ( opposite of Brienz ) already
??
You may go there by ship from Interlaken and will have a path even behind the waterfall and may see the landscape through the falls. There is a great hotel and a short cablecar from ship to Hotel.
paths there are asphalted and go mostly gently up and down the hill.
Trains for Schynige platte start in Wilderswil and I once made the tour from there to First and down with the cablecar to Grindelwald.
I would not recommend this with a children-buggy.
Lauterbrunnen and Trümmelbach-fälle are also very interesting, as the Trümmelbach-waterfalls are mainly INside the mountain.

Good luck !

I've been to Lauterbrunnen and Trummelbach falls.
Perhaps I wii see the Giessbachfälle this time. Looks beautiful.
Thanks all.

One alternative suggestion: you can take the bus from Grindelwald to Meiringen (via Grosse Scheidegg, great views during the journey) and from Meiringen you go to visit the Reichenbachfall. It is famous among Sherlock Holmes' fans because it should have been the place of his death. Independently of that, it is beautiful and easy to reach, a cograil from Meiringen takes you there in less than 10 minutes.

Talking about children and the Alps, how high can they normally go without altitude sickness setting in? What age are they capable of dealing with heights? Someone said two years old to me - is that correct?

Grindelwald for 1 day

by Bimalaggarwal

I am not really aware of the exact age for any child to be safe form this problem,
but I think it should vary from one child to another.
But this is an important factor one should keep in mind before planning a trip to a high-altitude place.

Lats week, we were on Stanserhorn, and my son was in good spirits all the way. He did not seem to be having
this problem.
We have been travelling with him to the mountains for quite some time.

THE BEGINNING OF A FANTASTIC TRIP

by JudyinPA

THE RAIL STATION IS ABOUT A HALF MILE FROM TOWN WITH BUSES PROVIDING TRANSPORTATION. THE TWO OLDER MEN IN THE PICTURE ARE HUNTERS TAKING THE TRAIN UP THE MOUNTAIN. THEY GET OFF AT ONE OF THE LOWER STATIONS AND HUNT DOWNHILL TO TAKE THEIR GAME BACK TO TOWN.

Hiking from Kleine Scheidegg to Maennlichen

by globetrott

Kleine Scheidegg is a great place to start hiking to Maennlichen - in a distance of 1:20 h - along one of the most scenic hiking-paths in that area. You will pass by several nice restaurants and simple alpine-hotels and will have the possibility to take the cablecar from Maennlichen to Grindelwald-Grund or to Wengen.
Hiking down all the way from Maennlichen to Lauterbrunnen will take 4 hours

Bachalpsee

by barbskie

A tiny natural lake fed mostly from snowmelts and rainfall. Not only supplying hydroelectrical power for over a century but also offers a great stunning views of the Bernese Alps. Can be reached through a hiking trail from First station. An easy hiking path for all ages. About 2 hours hike. Not to be missed by every travelers lists and take the world famous picture postcard scene ........from yours truly.

Stairs to Upper Glacier

by leplaya

One of the coolest things to do in Grindlewald is to climb up to the Upper Glacier viewing point. To get there, you must walk about 1 1/2 hours east of Grindlewald (follow the hiking signs, they're well marked). You will then reach a long set of wooden stairs climbing up the side of a large boulder. It costs 6 CHF to access the stairs. The climb up the stairs (~1000 steps) is a little scary, but there are great views along the way. It is a little annoying to climb because there is barely enough space for people to be going up and down it at the same time. On top there are great views of the Upper Glacier and the mountains around Grindlewald. There is a restaurant on top.
