Being greeted by a huge smile when you enter a hotel is a teriffic start. We arrived at 9.30 am so that we could make the most of our time in Grindelwald. We were soon given lots of helpful advice and sold tickets for the train up to Kleine Scheidegg, from where we did the lovely 3 hour walk back to Grindelwald, underneath the Eiger.The wild flower meadows were amazing.
The hotel is traditional, rather than super de-luxe.Our room was fine with great views from the balcony.
Although you can take bikes on the train,I think that it is only the trains after 4.00 pm which allow them on. So the next morning I put my mountain bike on the back of the bus and went up to Grosse Scheidegg. Although there are quite a few marked cycle tracks, they are almost all either small tarmac or stone roads, some of which are pretty steep.I had a great ride back down with fantastic views across to the Eiger.
We loved Grindelwald.
