Picture-perfect and heralded as one of Switzerland’s world-class ski destinations, Grindelwald’s position below the peaks of the Bernese Alps seeks to to put it in good competition as one of the most beautiful places in the world. Lying at the foot of the north face of the Eiger, the village is made to look entirely fantastical and majestic. It’s extremely popular for hiking, skiing, sledging or any other snow-based activity, making it ideal for a winter getaway. For those searching for an adrenaline rush, the First summit promises exactly that; First Cliff walk is a walkway that runs along the cliff, rewarding you with spellbinding views of the Eiger and surrounding valley and the First Flyer takes the excitement up a notch — a zip-line designed for up to four people reaching speeds of up to 85km/hr. Perhaps it’s the adrenaline rush you’ve been looking for this winter? Even if not for the prime winter sports territory, Grindelwald’s snowy surroundings are sure to delight every kind of traveller planning to explore more European destinations.
