Great ski area for families - not crowded & plenty of good mountain restaurants. Long, well groomed runs perfect for the whole family.

BIG TIP - when booking your skiing holiday particularly in Grindelwald don't let the tour operators by your passes !!! It is so easy to do it at the station yourself and you get a better exchange rate even better if you have free use of your credit card whilst abroad which some cards give. Your rep will charge at least 2.5% for using the card whether you have free use or not !!! So be warned after 20 yrs of going we let our rep do it and it cost over £9 pp more. Hope you find this useful.

Very small ski resort. Need to walk to get to some lifts. Ski slopes and walking pads on the same level. Preparation of the pist very bad.

Bit of a trek from Wengen, involving train to Kleine Scheidegg, then train to Grindelwald, bus to gondola station & gondola up to top.
Nice skiing up there & good views, think only a black run back to grindelwald? Must be good walking in the summer.

Whether you're looking to take a hike among the numerous, well-marked trails or decide to go Paragliding (you'll launch up here), you're going to have to take a ride up First.

In addition to hiking, you can also bring bikes up and of course skis in the winter (we were there in summer).

The views you'll encounter once you're all the way up are just splendid and certainly worthy of your time.

If you don't want to hike/bike all the way down, you can hop on at another stop on your way down.

If you have a Swiss Pass, bring it along, as you will get a discount for your ride.
