Scheidegg with the Jungfraujoch in the background
(Grindelwald, Kanton of Bern, Switzerland)

Grindelwald is a picturesque traditional mountain village in the Bernese Oberland region of Switzerland. Long famed as a winter tourist destination with slopes for beginners, intermediates and the challeges of the Eiger glacier for the experienced, there are activities for the non-skiers, from tobogganing to groomed winter hiking tracks. It is the usual starting point for ascents of the Eiger and the Wetterhorn. Nowadays Grindelwald is also a popular summer activity resort with many miles of hiking trails across the Alps. The Wengernalpbahn connects Grindelwald to the Kleine Scheidegg from where the Jungfraubahn ascends inside the Eiger to the Jungfraujoch.
