About the property

Apartment & Studio

Set in the world famous Bernese Oberland, Grindelwald is the base for some of Europe's best walking trails and has become something of a hiking Mecca over the years. During the winter months with over 260 kms of slopes in the Jungfrau region you are spoilt for choice.

The chalet is perfectly located in a very quiet private road just a 7 minutes walk from the main street / railway station (Grindelwald Dorf).

The studio Pilatus is 56m2 (2-3 persons) with a huge terrace.

The apartment Shreckhorn with 3.5 rooms (2 bedrooms) 86m2 (4-5 persons).

Both are very spacious. Each one has a very large south facing balcony or large terrace (studio) with uninterrupted views of the Eiger North Face and the surrounding mountain world.

Schreckhorn has modern furniture with a fully equipped modern and brand new kitchen. Both have internet (WIFI), cable LCD TV and DVD player. There are covered parking spaces (carports) for the apartment and the studio.

Cleaning (at the end of your stay), linen, towels, kitchen towels, Internet and the carport - everything is included in the rates. Only a tourist tax (about 3 - 6 CHF per adults and teenies) has to be paid locally & additionally.

About Christine + Paul

We are living in the northern part of Switzerland and we spent our winter holidays in the last years in Grindelwald. We love very much skiing and sledding. Also hiking in summer is marvelous.

When we got the opportunity to buy this wonderful apartment 'Schreckhorn' in the Chalet JASMINE we didn't hesitate.

Our neighbour, Rita, was very much excited of the studio 'Pilatus' and its huge terrace that she bought the studio immediately as well. The studio is just below the apartment.

We are the owners since July 2013

Christine + Paul purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Christine + Paul chose Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau

Very wide and sunny balcony/terrace overlooking the ski area 'Kleine Scheidegg & Männlichen' and an incredible view to the Eiger North Face. The apartment and the studio are very bright (window front) and spacious.

What makes this apartment unique

Very good location. Close to the ski bus stop (100 m) to all skiing and hiking areas: Firstbahn, Männlichenbahn or Grund railway station for the train to Kleine Scheidegg (Top of Europe).

5 minutes walk to the railway station or the center of Grindelwald for shopping, dining or relaxing in one of the beautiful Restaurants and Bars.

Fantastic views, perfect location, and fully equiped

  • 5 of 5

The Shreckhorn apartment was fantastic. The views from the huge balcony were unbelievable. We enjoyed just eating a meal or sitting outside enjoying the view. The location was perfect. A short walk to the main downtown area, and close to the train station and other main areas (First gondola, Mannlichen gondola, tourist info center - very helpful). There is a bus stop close by as well. The apartment was very well equipped - great kitchen with everything needed to cook including many spices, etc that you wouldn't normally have in a rental. Christine was super responsive when I had questions. Overall, a fantastic rental - we hope to return again and will definitely rent here.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very positive feedback. That is very nice. Especially as we know that the weather was quite cool and wet. Normally it is much better in July. We hope to welcome you and your family once again. Have a good time and thanks again. Christine.

Beautiful memories of our family

  • 5 of 5

Dear Christine and Paul,

We enjoyed the four nights staying at your apartment. The view and every detail of this apartment remained vivid in our mind. Thank your for providing such a vacation home, considering all needs of travelers. You just feel relaxed and well taken care of because the house having everything you need. My daughter was so happy about all the card games and toys. While I was too surprised by the fully equipped kitchen. The sweet owners are kind and generous on all supplies, including decent amount of Nespresso capsules, all seasoning ingredients, unbelievable collection of cups, glasses and plates. The breathtaking view and great air is also unforgettable. I would definitely go back someday!

Fantastic views, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for the third time with our two children (4 and 6). It is very close to all amenities (shops, train station, gondolas are not far). The apartment offers fantastic views across the valley and it is well equipped. We had a great time staying here - watching fireworks (Swiss National Day - 1 August) from the comfort of our balcony, seeing our first marmots in Bussalps, visiting Lauterbrunnen and Schilthorn and going swimming in the centre of Grindelwald. We would recommended it to anyone who want to visit this beautiful area, looking for 'homelike' accommodation!
