Shops opening times between Chrismas and New Year

Arriving to Grindelwald on the 26th December and will stay for 5 days. Looking forward to it, it is our first visit to this area.

I would be grateful if someone can help with this:

Are shops for sledge rental open on the 26th? If yes, until what time?

Are the restaurants open on that day?

Are food shops open and until what time?

Are there many cash points in grindelwald and are they very busy?

Is it better to bring cash or one can rely on the cashpoints ?

We are staying in a hotel near the train station.

Thank you.

Grindlewald is a resort, so the shops are open everyday in season, including Sundays and including supermarkets. You have to check the opening hours because these vary from town to town and while I can tell you what there are in Verbier I do not know the hours for Grindlewald! The sports shops are no exception - open 7 days a week including Christmas Day and New Years Day.

I assume you mean ATM's? They are all over the place and normally you do not queue to use them. All the banks have them and there are lots at the airports.

There is a bank ATM just across from the station and several up and down the main street.
