The virtual Walking Tour:

Hiking Switzerland Grindelwald – Virtual Walk Walking Treadmill Video

Today we take a virtual walking tour along the streets of famous Grindelwald, Switzerland. The small city lies just over the mountain from Lauterbrunnen and up the valley from Interlaken in the Jungfrau region of the Bernese Oberland. Grindelwald, Switzerland has become a major tourist destination in the Swiss alps and is one of the best places to travel in my opinion. Switzerland hiking is some of the best and most easily accessible but you can easily find other things to do in Grindelwald. And if you don’t want to take on steep mountain trails, Grindelwald has some very nice paved walking paths down to the river and back.

If you plan to travel here, it’s all very easy and straightforward. Also, our kids loved the playground and you can take the bergbahn to First or up to Pfingstegg. You can rent bikes and scooters and go paragliding as well.

Grindelwald is a little town surrounded by Alps and farms

The area has numerous hiking trails. You will see lots of tourist shops and restaurants and lots of hotels and vacation rentals in Grindelwald. We walk from the train station down around the hill and then up a ways, past the gondola station that leads up to First and back to the train station. The views of the mountains are stunning.

Grindelwald, Switzerland dates back to at least the 12th century. While the current population is a mere 3800 or so, it can feel crowded.

Grindelwald gets very busy in the summer with tourist traffic. Because of its picturesque views and easy access, it attracts people from all over the world. It has a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We could have spent a week there easily. I’d love to have rented the carts or bikes and ridden down from First or to have explored the canyon below Pfingsstegg. I hope you enjoy this tour and exploration of Grindelwald. Thanks for joining us and keep on steppin’. -Henry
