My family of 5 -- 2 active adults, 3 active and hungry teens -- will be spending 9 days in Grindelwald. I am overwhelmed by the sheer number of wonderful sounding hikes. If anyone would like to suggest a favorite or two, I would love to narrow down my number of must-do hikes. Also, any favorite restaurants in the Grindelwald, Murren, Wegen, Lauterbrunnen, Interloken areas? I realize Switzerland is expensive, but I'd love to hear about moderately-priced restaurants, or even tasty places for a quick bite or take-away. Thank you very much for your time! Kim

hi Kim,

A slightly adventurous walk is Grindelwald to Bäregg, which is a Berghaus/Restaurent that sits above the Grindelwald Lower Glacier and has fantastic views towards the Klein Fiescherhorn. Take the cable car to Pfingstegg and follow the signs. It takes about 1.5 hours to get there.

The path used to go to another Berghaus called Stieregg, but as the glacier receded, the surrounding rock and scree collapsed because they were not supported and the old Berghaus had to be demolished because it was in danger of falling onto the glacier.

Hi Kim-

Another Kim has done some work to help you out:

PS - It is "Interlaken" and "Wengen."

And, Mürren is spelled with an umlaut over the "u" - that is ü - which means a different pronunciation. However, in that region, they have heard it all, so don't worry too much about it....;-)
