"picturesque but busy Heidi village under the Eiger" Grindelwald by angiebabe
Grindelwald Travel Guide: 190 reviews and 607 photos
I had been to the stunning area of Lauterbrunnen, up to Wengen and up to the top of the Schilthorn with my mother in early winter 2 and a half years before - now i had returned with 2 friends in the lovely Swiss summer - Lauterbrunnen and then the bonus of driving around to the area of Grindelwald in the next valley which is under the north face of the Eiger.
we had stunning weather in which to admire the greenery and the majestic mountains around us lush and wild flower filled mountain paddocks complete with swiss cows and their huge bells. even the sheep had bells!
so lots of camera snapping and oohs and aahs.
we stayed in the very clean SYHA hostel - complete with much appreciated for busy travellers internet for catchup contact back home etc - and eiger souvenirs. and the early wake up call for our rush off the next morning to our 'do before you die' trip up Jungfraujoch.
All our travelling was with an excellent vauxhall opel diesel and truly appreciated the freedom of our own wheels in a country as beautiful as Switzerland.
- Pros:very photogenic!- beautiful flowerfilled and lush fields complete with cow and accessories in summer with huge mountain backgrounds, excellent skifields in winter connecting thru to wengen and lauterbrunnen,well organised services and facililties,
- Cons:narrow winding roads above the villages, pricey accommodation even when its in the youth hostel budget price range
- In a nutshell:picture postcard perfect
