Cycle routes vary from gentle along the valley floor to steep mountain passes or proper downhill tracks. Bicycles are easily rented in the village and are allowed on most mountain trains. The lakes have lidos and beaches all along the shores and there is a heated open air swimming pool in the village. For those who want more adrenalin, white water rafting, canoing, mountaineering, para gliding, hang gliding, bungy jumping and skydiving are all available in the surrounding area.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This Grindelwald Chalet Apartment exceeded all of our expectations.
The basement includes two covered parking spaces and a laundry room.
The Apartment covers the whole of the first floor of the Chalet and has a huge terrace. The kitchen is nothing short of luxurious, the living area and master bedroom are huge. The description of the Chalet in the listing is accurate and the local Apartment Manager was incredibly friendly and helpful.
The location is above the main village (15 min walk or an hourly free bus) and looks over the valley straight onto the Eiger, which rises high above the eyeline, as, in Grindelwald, you are so close to the high mountains.
The Jungfrau region is simply stunning and we were lucky to have 5 cloudless days during our stay.
We tackled the Eigernordwand path from Eigergletcher to Alpiglen (a must for the keen walker), the Faulhorn from Schynige Platte (not for the fainthearted - this is a big walk), and had two relaxing days on the two lakes (either side of Interlaken).
You don't have travel far to start your day out, just set off from the Chalet on foot and head up to Bussalp, Bort or Waldspitz. However, to get to the highest views, take the Post Bus, Train or Cable Cars and start your walk from there.
The swimming pool in the village was great and nearly empty at the end of the day, with diving boards and a water slide. There's also an ice rink in the sports centre, where beginners can take their first steps, or (a must), go and watch the local team play ice hockey.
We could write so much more, there is so much to see and so many walks to explore.
