Catered Chalets Grindelwald - Switzerland
One of Europe's oldest mountain resorts lies in a valley in the beautiful Bernese Oberland. Grindelwald is surrounded by the spectacular mountain trio "Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau" and the small tourist town is perfect for luxury winter holidays. It combines rustic country charm with a majestic mountain barrier. On one hand the high mountains create a paradise for mountaineers or skilled skiers; on the other hand, the woods between the Grosse and Kleine Scheidegg ridges, are perfectly suited to cross-country skiing. The quaint glacier village, the only great mountain resort in the Jungfrau area which can be reached by car, offers luxury catered ski chalets. Grindelwald invites you to enjoy panoramic views, breathe fresh mountain air or eat a bite at the romantic mountain taverns.
Grindelwald, with its spectacular scenery, long history of tourism, easy accessibility by car, luxury ski chalets for rent, is a paradise for winter sporting activities: skiing/snowboarding for beginners as well as downhill experts on perfectly groomed slopes; heli-skiing; ski touring; snow tubing; winter hiking on prepared footpaths; tobogganing; cross-country skiing; snowshoeing; curling, ice skating. Adventure sports, from paragliding to river-rafting can be done and the Sports Centre houses various indoor swimming pools. For tranquil pampering there is a wellness zone with a sauna, steam bath and foot-spa, before guests return to their catered ski chalets. Grindelwald also provides a wide variety of unique mountain excursions, rail adventures, city trips, cave investigations, boat trips on lakes and museum visits. What is luxury winter holidays without shopping? Grindelwald offers interesting boutiques, jewellery, biking, walking, climbing, traditional souvenir shops and restaurants. Various events organized throughout the year include the famous "Festival International des Neiges", held in January on the natural skating rink in the heart of the village, where international teams make ice/snow sculptures.
