Suggestions on things to do

Hi,

We are a young couple. We have planned stay at Grindelwald on May 23. We arrive in the afternoon around noon, stay the night and do the Jungfraujoch trip the next day.

What are the best things to do from afternoon to evening? We are visiting Lucerne, paragliding and hiking in Interlaken and are going on the Glacier Express. So we are looking for variety if possible.

We have planned a long hike later in our vacation at an other place, so we would not want to go on a long hike that day. We are up for easy-to-moderate 2 to 3 hour hikes. We dont have a car and will rely on public transport.

Unless it is really worth it given the things we are already doing, it would be nice if we can minimize the spending.

Another Question:

Can you suggest not-so-expensive places to get vegetarian food at Grindelwald? We like veg-sandwiches, indian food, and other veg.

Thanks!

I would suggest maybe taking the Pfingstegg cablecar to the top and hiking to the Glacier and back. Easy walking and the cablecar isn't too expensive.

BTW where are you going hiking in Interlaken?

Cool... Thanks...

We still haven't decided on the Interlaken hike yet. All suggestions welcome! I was thinking of posting in the Interlaken forum.

The long hike we have planned is in Feldberg-Germany.

The reason I asked is that there isn't much hiking in Interlaken. Interlaken is a city. Most hikers stay in one of the mountain villages where hiking is abundant.
