Visitor Reviews of Grindelwald

Well, Grindelwald is not as pretty as Wengen but I won't call it ugly. Stayed at the Kirschbuhl hotel; 120 euros a night, breakfast included; this was in February 2017. The breakfast was superb and the view through the mountains to the Eiger just mind blowing. The suppers were fabulous but a tad expensive. Hey, fabulous food is almost never cheap. This is a 4 star hotel but having supper and looking out to the moonlight drenched snowy mountains is just amazing; they seem so immediate. The staff at the hotel were incredible and jolly helpful. Heh, heh the cake and pastries at tea time were free and freshly baked. There are lots of good cheap restaurants, actually dirt cheap if you compare them to Zermatt, Verbier, Saas Fee and Crans Montana.
