After Zurich and Liechtenstein, we headed off to Grindelwald, a holiday town that sits within the Jungfrau region. From Zurich, we took the train headed for Interlaken and changed to a smaller train from Interlaken to Grindelwald. The entire journey took us more than 2.5 hours and was a smooth and uneventful ride.
While researching for this trip, we realized that many like to use Interlaken as their base as it is a well-known hub with good connectivity around the area. However, my family and I decided that we wanted the mountain-top or you could say, mountainside experience this time round and we decided to stay in Grindelwald itself. Accommodation options in Grindelwald are on the slightly pricier side compared to the options in Interlaken but it is understandable considering that it is a holiday town! Here’s the link to the cute Airbnb we stayed in.
After settling into our accommodation, we decided to head back to the main town centre to explore and grab some groceries at the co-op. The main town centre is where the train terminal, bus terminal, hotels, sports activities, shops and restaurants are situated.
The Grindelwald Sports Centre, also known as Sportzentrum Grindelwald, is open to the public and on a gloomy day, one can easily engage in sports activities here. From bouldering to indoor swimming and ice-skating, Sportzentrum Grindelwald is definitely a good area to visit on a gloomy day! Just outside the centre lies a playground which children and adults can hang out at. On a snowy day in Grindelwald, we saw many children building snowmen – a cute sight indeed.
A friendly tip: If you intend to do your groceries in Grindelwald, just note the opening hours of the one and only co-op there! They do not operate on Sundays.
