As it's only a two-hour drive or train ride away from the Swiss capital of Bern, the famous high alpine town Grindelwald, Switzerland, is a popular holiday destination for city dwellers and international visitors alike. It is nestled amongst one of the most striking natural sceneries in the European Alps. Flanked by steep mountain sides, including breath-taking Eiger Nordwand, you cannot get any closer to the world-famous mountain region Jungfrau - Top of Europe, featuring three four-thousand-meter peaks in close proximity to an ancient glacier sitting on top of them.

In wintertime, people enjoy the snow with skiing, snowboarding, and sledging. And if you are into music and festivals, go can go there in the beginning of April and enjoy a weekend lined up with well-known international bands. In summertime, Grindelwald is very popular with hikers and visitors who board the Jungfraubahn to go all the way up to the Jungfrau summit to take a splendid view of the Aletsch Glacier. The summit is covered with snow and ice all year round, and it's not unusual to experience heavy and sparkling snowflakes falling on your head in the height of summer. If you feel like exploring the region, Interlaken is only a short train ride away.

Switzerland is known for being a pricey holiday destination. Grindelwald offers accommodation options for all budgets and there are a couple of hostels in Grindelwald, Switzerland, too. Grindelwald is a picturesque old Swiss big village/ small town with mainly traditional wood houses, which usually contain three floors with several rooms. In summer, the windows are decorated with meter-long flower boxes full of colourful red, pink, and white geraniums, which go well with the dark-wood colour of the houses and the grand mountains in the back.
