Visit to Grindelwald, Switzerland
28th July to 30th July 2009
From Interlaken we headed up the valley to Grindelwald. In many ways it's touristy, but the town's spectacular setting makes up for all. The train journey from Interlaken to Grindelwald is an awesome affair.
View from the centre of town with the Jungfrau in the background.Grindelwald's tiny six hole golf course is definitely worth a round or three.
Not sure if I'm in particularly good form here... A big plate of delicious, dripping raclette. Apart from big views Grindelwald is all about skiing in winter and walking in summer. After cycling, canyoning and paragliding in Interlaken, Wednesday was walking day. We began our trek over the Faulhorn by catching the cable-car station at First.
Wildflowers were everywhere.
The trail passes the Bachalpsee; this lake is one of the most spectacular spots on the walk.Descending into the valley the views were just as good, though one wonders how these guys would fair in winter.
