Hi guys. I need some expert advice.

My partner and I are planning a 4-5 day trip to Grindewald, March 5th to 10th. We are both non skiers but keen hikers. I'm a bit overwhelmed with choosing the correct activities, rail pass etc. Not too sure on the weather around this time of year. Is this classed as low season?

We are interested in sledge riding..day or night which is Best? And going Jungfraujoch. Apart from that we are at a bit of a loss.

Has anyone done a trip for this duration and in this region? We are happy to do anything. Maybe even have a try at skiing, if that is even an option.

Thank you for your time.

Hi Shanpassmore and welcome to MySwissAlps!

So there will be few if any hikes available to you at that time of year - snowshoeing though won't be a problem! Also sledging is possible - have a look at the hiking and sledging pass here which might work well for you: https://www.jungfrau.c h/en-gb/jungfrau-ski-region/jungfrau-region-hiking-and-sledging-pass/

You can read more about weather here. In early March it is still high season for skiing and that's what most people will be doing there. I would expect fairly cold temperature and a fair bit of snow.

Hi Shan,

All I can say is be sure you go up the other valley to Lauterbrunnen and then up by train to Wengen.
