No, please give us but the Pfingstegg walk on the on the other hand, to Berghaus Bäregg. Much quieter, nicer and more impressive.

  • In the 25-minute gondola ride to the observation deck. Unfortunately the rain would view of things it's not raining. From the Mountain Lake Bachalpsee from there. While taking a photo while watching the various alpine plants enjoyed only the atmosphere enough. Very rare we had decent climbing in. Alone while other tourists so they didn't feel like to walk around here. Marmot cry many times I've heard this figure to made sure. Thank you very much.

Where to stay in Grindelwald

In the resort town of Grindelwald, the main street is dotted with mid-range hotels where you can rest after a long day of skiing and shopping. For ease of convenience, opt to stay closer to the city's one train station. Wander a bit off the main road to find a handful of hostels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts--though be warned that their rates are similar to the hotels in town.
