Grindelwald and the Eiger

Grindelwald is close to the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Alps – the Jungfrau-Aletsch area – and it’s at the foot of Mount Eiger, one of the top Alpine destinations. So it offers a choice of exciting leisure activities all year round.

Tourist magnet in summer and winter

Grindelwald boasts a steady flow of visitors throughout both the summer and winter seasons. And that means it’s always worth a visit. In summer it’s a mecca for mountain climbers with its fascinating network of hiking trails, breathtakingly beautiful mountain tours and challenging climbs. And there’s also plenty on offer for golfers, mountain bikers, tennis players, hang gliders, river rafters and even wellness connoisseurs.


In winter the Jungfrau region offers more than 200 km of ski slopes and around 100 km of toboggan runs and winter walking trails. Spectacular ski and snowboard slopes, freestyle skiing world cup races, heli-skiing, attractive cross-country trails, snow-shoe tours and idyllic mountain chalets guarantee fitness, relaxation and entertainment galore.
