There are several ways to arrive in Grindelwald for your stay meaning you can choose the most convenient for you. Here are our top tips!
If flying we would suggest Basel, Zurich, Geneva or possibly even Milan airports as arrival points. It is then possible to hire a car or take the excellent Swiss train network. Grindelwald and the Jungfrau Region are rare in the skiing world in that the trains bring you directly to resort!
Driving to resort is a great way to reach Grindelwlad with excellent road links. The motorway goes all the way to Interlaken in the valley below and then it is just a 20-minute drive up the valley to the resort. Beware that winter equipment such as snow chains are often required to access and travel around resort.
Snow tyres are heavily recommended in Switzerland during the winter months but are not currently mandatory. However, if you do have an accident without snow tyres you are likely to be the one who gets the blame in the eyes of the law.
Germany and Austria also have rules requiring snow tyres in winter so take note if your journey would require passing through either of these countries.
Let the train take the strain! Why not make your entire journey from the UK by train? London to the Swiss border by train can take as little as 7 hours (https://www.raileurope.com/en/blog/take-the-ski-train-to-the-swiss-alps) and once in the resort there is no hassle with parking or driving on potentially slippery roads.
