Hi Team,

I just realized that it is the Federal Day of Thanksgiving on 17th Sep, do we expect all shops and restaurants will be close on that day? I will be in Grindelwald on that day, is the transportation service to Jungfraujoch and to other towns will be close too?

Thank you for your help.

Hi Olivia,

Transport services to the Jungfraujoch and elsewhere will be running as usual.

As Grindelwald is a major tourist destination, I would expect that all services a tourist is likely to use would be operating as normal. I was in Zermatt on that day last year. The town was very busy and everything was open.
