Please let me introduce myself. I'm Herman from Indonesia and i will be travelling to switzerland next month.
I am planning to include grindewald on my trip as everytime i googled it, grindewald seems very picturesque village with green meadow and houses and beautiful swiss alps in the background (as the picture i attached). However, grindewald seems a very big area and i cannot point for sure where exactly to find that pucturesque village. i will be travelling via train/bus, therefore it would help to know which station is the nearest to the village.
thank you very much in advance!
Hi Herman32, welcome to MySwissAlps!
The town is called Grindelwald. The main train station in the center of town has the same name. There's only one other train station, which is called Grindelwald Grund. It's along the rail line to Kleine Scheidegg. Trains can be found in the timetable. Grindelwald itself is a small to mid sized town (depending on what you compare it to) but there are lots of chalets on the surrounding slopes, so you may have seen pictures from those areas as well.
Thank you very much for your information. I think i did not post the pircture correctly in the last post therefore i will do so in this post.
As i googled i think the place that most likely to have that kind of panorama is either somewhere nearby grindewald-grund or lauterbrunnen valley. If so, can you help me recommend which one have better panorama?
really thank you for your kind reply!
I don't recognize that location but Grindelwald has scenery like that. Lauterbrunnen too, but it's down in a narrow valley so the views are not that wide; still amazing though, see here. You'll have wider views up in Wengen for example. The whole Jungfrau region is stunning, and it's small so you'll quickly reach beautiful locations wherever you're based.
I don't recognize that exact view, but, as Arno notes, it seems like Grindelwakd.
Attached are a couple from the other side of the Männlichen ridge or on the ridge.
The "Grannies' Walk' goes along the top of the ridge from Männlichen to Kleine Scheidegg.

Please note that many of the scenic sites are not easily accessible in early May, because of snow at altitudes above 2000 meters. The walk from Männlichen to Kleine Scheidegg will be closed, for example, until very late May or even early June .It is low season...between skiing and hiking... and not many tourists come then, so some hotels may be closed.
