Grindelwald has a small but great selection of around 17 bars (with many of them being located in hotels). Some of our favourites include the Hotel Spinne espresso bar (which is always busy but great for good music and beer at the end of skiing. Keep your eyes peeled for the ‘pumping-tent’ located nearby) as well as The Avacado Bar. The C&M is a café/restaurant inside a classic wooden chalet which is a great second stop on the way home. Past midnight, the best nightclubs have to be the Mescalero (Hotel Spinne) and the Plaza (Hotel Sunstar).
Grindelwald has a great selection of local restaurants within the town and local hotels. Our favourites include Memory, a busy restaurant serving all of Switzerland’s famous home-town dishes.
The Grindel Lounge, a cool laid-back café/restaurant has a vintage feel along with the Boutique Hotel. As well as a great place to drink, The C&M has a fantastic restaurant with some great choices on the menu! This place is a must visit for food and visual design.
Along the Dorfstrasse, which is never far from any of the luxury chalets, you’ll find Grindelwald’s shopping experience. A high percentage of these shops specialize in sporting goods and ski equipment as you would expect. There are also Swiss watch shops and simple jewellery amongst the local boutiques.
Grindelwald offers many activities for its tourists other than skiing! On your first full day of vacation, it’s well worth getting yourself up to the ‘First Cliff Walk,’ a metal walkway projecting 50meters off the mountain to a sheer drop beneath. The easy way down is to catch the First Flyers (800 meter zip line) or the slightly lower option of mountain carts or “trottibikes”, a hybrid of scooters and bicycles.
Girndelwald offers loads of scenic walks with one of the most famous being Eiger Trail.
The Jungfraujoch is one of the world’s highest and most spectacular train rides and once this is completed head to the Bachalpsee (a beautiful lake). As well as mountain biking, paragliding and sledging there is also the chance to slow down at the Gridelwald Museum and marmot trails as well as the many spas. Take a look at the Grindelwald tourism office website to see if your time in this Swiss resort overlaps any special events.
How To Get There
Once in resort, all areas of the town can be reached easily on foot from any of the chalet rentals, buses and trains won’t be needed! (unless you’re looking to get to one of the activities like mountain biking).
The drive to Grindelwald is relatively smooth and easy however there are some busier parts en-route. It’s also worth noting that Grindelwald doesn’t have as many signs as the bigger ski resorts so investing in a sat-nav is crucial. The town is around a 20 minutes from Interlaken (although it may take a little longer if one of the local farmers is crossing his cows over the road). As you approach the valley, there are some great spots for pictures as you rise in elevation. Remember, there is only limited parking once you arrive and most chalets only include 1 car parking space.

Grindelwald isn’t famous for its advanced skiing and black runs. There are however, a few decent blacks and several miles of off piste challenging terrain (including a day tour, starting at the Jungfraujoch and taking you many miles towards the Bernese Oberland, a return train journey will be needed). At the top of the First Egg lift there is a black that runs all the way down into the valley (following the route of the gondola). From Oberjoch there is a tough black run on the Schwarzer Traum and also a couple of off piste itineraries. Don’t forget The Lauberhorn World Cup run which is well worth the high speed race.
A high percentage of Grindelwalds ski runs are perfect for the confident and practising intermediates. There are loads of red runs with many connecting options if the red looks a little too steep or if a change in pace is needed. From Oberjoch, Kleine Scheidegg and Mannlichen you’ll find several long scenic runs taking you all the way back to Grindelwald, perfect at any time of the day.
For the more confident intermediate, head to the top of the Lauberhorn lift and get down the runs to Kleine Scheidegg, or to Wixi (following the World Cup downhill course).
Gindelwald being a good place to learn to ski is debatable. Although there are several slopes which are great for those who know the minimal basics, the first timers will be limited by locations. The best place for the unexperienced beginner is going to be the Bodmi nursery slopes at the bottom of The First. Kleine Scheidegg is generally a better location for beginners as it is slightly higher with better snow quality. It’s a few minutes longer to get to but is well worth the further travels. Wengen also has a nursery area in the centre which has recently been expanded.
Almost all of Grindelwalds pistes are snowboarder friendly making this resort one of the less well known favourites.
The snowpark is located in First (beloew Oberjoch) with rails and kickers (note: the superpipe is next to the Berme piste) as well as the snowcross. Towards the Wengen side of the Kleine Scheidegg area, there is Jumper’s Corner (accessible by the Wixi chair), and Jump Street, enroute back to the village, with a halfpipe and jumps.
The non-skiers in Grindelwald can sit back and soak up the amazing views from their chalets balcony or head into town to get a coffee and read in alpine charm. Grindelwald Is hugely popular amongst skiers and non-skiers alike with so many options and activities throughout the summer and winter months. Natural walks, a beautiful lake, paragliding, mountain biking are to name but a few!
