Grindelwald is a gorgeous resort in Switzerland with a lot of history. It’s the largest in the iconic Swiss Jungfrau region, which includes Wengen and Mürren and is famous for the spectacular Eiger mountain.
Englishman Gerald Fox was the first person to ski here all the way back in 1881 and since then, thousands of skiers and snowboarders have followed in his footsteps, taking on the slopes of this epic area. The resort boasts the world’s longest sledging run at 15km and a staggering altitude differential of 3,387 metres. It’s also been the site of a famous movie scene or two, having featured in the James Bond movie “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” as well as depicting the planet Alderaan in Star Wars Episode III.
The resort underwent a huge (and extremely exciting) development in the build up to the 2019/20 season. About £370m was invested in the project, known as V Bahn, which will increase capacity on routes up to Europe’s highest railway station, the Jungfraujoch, and dramatically cut travel times.
The Jungfrau Region ski area now covers three resorts; Grindelwald-Wengen, Grindelwald-First and Mürren-Schilthorn. Skiers can enjoy 210km of highly varied piste and some of the most stunning views in Europe.
