Thanks to Railbookers, who arranged our rail transit in Italy and Switzerland, along with lodging accommodations, my family and I utterly enjoyed our recent stay at Hotel Kirchbuehl in Grindelwald. As a previous reviewer commented, “Fantastic location, glorious views”. For us, this part of the country was simply breathtaking, surrounded by fresh cool air and snow-capped peaks. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, even showing us where we could wash our own clothes at a minimal cost as compared to the hotel’s laundry services. The hotel’s complimentary breakfast provided a hearty start for our excursions, and their dinner cuisine was outstanding. I was introduced to Grindelwald’s nussbrot (nut bread) at dinner at Kirchbuehl and fell in love with it. Wi-Fi was complimentary. And our beds were so comfortable! Those beds provided a welcome sanctuary after a long day of catching the aerial gondola to First at over the 7,000 ft. elevation, hiking an hour to Lake Bachalpsee and back, zip-lining a half-mile down to Schreckfeld via the First Flyer, riding the gondola down to Bort, and trekked down the rest of the way to Grindelwald amidst gorgeous vistas. It’s funny that a lot of friends commented on our tans when we returned home to Hawaii; a result from getting sunburnt while hiking around Grindelwald. Some reviewers have remarked that Grindelwald is very touristy and recommended other areas in Switzerland, but for us first-timers, it proved a perfect introduction to the country’s beauty and its people. Note: Switzerland is expensive; so come prepared to pay (cheerfully) or make alternate plans, such as purchasing meats, cheeses and breads in town versus dining at restaurants.
