Hi,

My husband and I are planning to spend 8 days in Switzerland in late May. We are trying to decide between staying in Grindelwald or Wengen during that period. We were told that May is a fairly off-peak season and many shops and restaurants are closed in Wengen. Hence, we are leaning towards staying in Grindelwald, though we heard that the scenary in Wengen is spectacular.

We will probably be doing some hiking, taking the train to places (like Interlaken, Lauterbrennan Valley, etc) and just enjoy taking in the lovely scenery. We also like to cook some of our meals.

Any advice is and recommendation for chalet/apartment would be greatly appreciated.

Fun

Hi and welcome to MySwissAlps!

End of May is indeed low season, so Grindelwald might be a safer bet. It will have a wider choice of restaurants and nightlife than Wengen. You can still get to Wengen from Grindelwald and explore the scenery there so I wouldn't worry too much. Here is more information on the low season: www.myswissalps.com/be sttimetovisit

For chalet & apartment suggestions have a look at:

A hiking suggestion in the area: www.myswissalps.com/hi king/maennlichen-kleinescheidegg, or www.myswissalps.com/hi king/gruetschalp-muerren if that one is not accessible yet because of snow.

Enjoy your stay in Switzerland!!

Maria.
