  a remore place in the Swiss alps

Gimmelwald seems to be mentioned and recommended in various guidebooks and in fact it is a really lovely, remote village, where time seems to have stood still since hundreds of years....
Gimmelwald is a great place for a daytrip from Muerren,
BUT choosing a hostel there in order to explore the Jungfrau-region
A simple excample :
You like to go the Kleine Scheidegg & Jungfrau from there :
The cablecar is leaving Gimmelwald every half hour to Stechelberg, the ride takes just 5 minutes, but in Stechelberg the bus to Lauterbrunnen will leave mostly only once every hour.First cable-car is around 06.15a.m., the last one is 11.10p.m.
At places like Interlaken, Lauterbrunnen, Stechelberg etc. you may still take a taxi afterwards, BUT for Gimmelwald there is NO road to !!
Gimmelwald is at the very end of the valley, high above Stechelberg - the only way to get there is by cable-car or hiking !! There is NO public road to Gimmelwald !!
