In summer and early fall, is also possible to hike into Grindelwald from well-marked Bernese Oberland trails, with or without the assistance of gondolas / cable-cars.

Get around

Grindelwald has two train stations: Grindelwald and Grund. The Grindelwald station is in the center of town; the Grund station is in the valley floor, on the way to Kleine Scheidegg. Wengernalpbahn trains (painted yellow and green) to Kleine Scheidegg generally stop at both stations. Berner Oberland Bahn trains (in blue and yellow livery) from Interlaken via Zweilütschinen stop only at Grindelwald. If you plan to walk between these stations, be aware that the two stations are about 1 km apart, and separated by roughly 100 m of vertical elevation.

A local bus service can get you to nearby destinations.

The gondola lift to Männlichen departs a few hundred meters west of Grund station. The gondola lift to First begins about ten minutes' walk east of Grindelwald station, while the cable car to Pfingstegg is about fifteen minutes' walk east of Grindelwald station.
