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 5-7 minutes walk from the railway station (Grindelwald Dorf) and the village center.

The studio Pilatus with 56m2 living area for 2 persons with a huge terrace is located just above the ground-floor (below the Shreckhorn apartment). The studio is currently under a complete renovation and will be available again about mid of 2018. It will be lovely (new kitchen, new bathroom, etc.)

The apartment Shreckhorn with 86 m2 living area for (4-5 persons) and 3.5 rooms (2 bedrooms) is located on the first floor.

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

Both have modern furniture with a fully equipped modern and brand new kitchen, internet (WiFi), cable LCD TV and a covered parking space (carport) in front of the chalet.

Cleaning at the end of your stay, linen, towels, kitchen towels, Internet and the carport - everything is included in the rates. The only additional costs are the tourist taxes (from 2018 per night : CHF 4.70 per adult and CHF 3.70 for teenies).

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 Grindelwald

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).

5-7 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.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Schreckhorn was a well equipped and comfortable apartment with an amazing view in a quiet area of Grindelwald. The village with all its amenities and the train station were easily accessible by a short uphill walk .We enjoy walking and there were many beautiful walks, often from the top station of a gondola or cablecar, where the views were spectacular. We bought a Jungfrau Travel Pass for 6 days which we used to full advantage, including a trip on a paddle steamer on Brienzersee, as well as those on the lifts and trains throughout the area. The property provided an ideal location for the activities we wanted to do and also it offered beautiful views from the large picture window and spacious balcony.

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!
