Welcome to our hostel

This truly is one of those picture postcard Swiss chalets which need to be seen to be believed. Because not only does it have views to die for, it is also completely renovated and equipped for all types of groups looking to make the most out of this alpine playground.

Used as a backdrop for famous films such as the James Bond, ‘On her Majesty’s Secret Service’ and ‘The Golden Compass’, the pretty town has been attracting visitors since the beginning of the century.

In the winter there are no end of skiing opportunities – the hostel has a ski and boot store and the nearest cable cars are just down the hill from the front door. Even if you are visiting in the summer then skiers can still take advantage of year round snow at the nearby glacier.

Don’t miss you chance to travel to the Jungfraujoch, the highest railway station in Europe at 3454 metres. The 100-year-old railway is by no means the oldest, but one of the most fascinating ones. Or if you enjoy hiking there are more than 500km of trails in the area. And the best thing is that if you get tired, there is always the cable car to get you back to base!

With stunning scenery, our hostel in Grindelwald provides groups with the true mountain experience – whether visiting in the summer or winter. Why not make an enquiry here today?
