Hike, bike, or bus to Bussalp, a mountain resort with unparalleled views of its scenic Swiss surroundings. This area is a great destination in and of itself, but also makes a great jumping-off point for visiting other nearby attractions. Try a few specialties from the resort's diverse menu while you take in the panoramas of mountain ridges and the valley below, or take advantage of the snow with some outdoor activities. A great place for families, this site offers a 15 km (9 mi) long sledding run that stretches from Faulhorn to Grindelwald.

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. If you feel so inclined, indulge at one of the upscale hotels for a luxurious stay in this glacier town.
