Hi

We will be traveling to Switzerland by 19th and staying there for about a week, as a family of five with three kids so really want to travel light.

We will be staying in Grindelwald, i will really appreciate some handy information about if laundry facility shops available there, how expensive and cheap it's or better to pack enough stuff for that many days.

Furthermore, as i have read that Grindelwald is a car free zone so does that mean we cant use our car there at all (in case one has a car rented out and reach Grindelwald by car) as we were planning to. Otherwise how one can transport the luggage from train to hotel and back. I might sound silly asking this but this question is big for me as traveling with kids one needs to worry about such petty issues ☺️

Thanks in advance

Hi Travelblues and welcome to MySwissAlps!

I don't have specific laundry information in Grindelwald - perhaps the hotel has it? It won't be cheap though if it is there. I think Lauterbrunnen would offer more services.

Grindelwald is not car-free so you are ok with your car (it is the villages of Murren and Wengen that are car-free).

There used to be a self-service laundry or Waschsalon on the main street near the Firstbahn (First gondola). I would email the tourist office and ask. They are very responsive.

Hi Travelblues,

>> Furthermore, as i have read that Grindelwald is a car free zone so does that mean we cant use our car there at all (in case one has a car rented out and reach Grindelwald by car) as we were planning to.

You can drive to Grindelwald, and drive around in the village. Most of the roads just lead to farms, houses and accommodation of various sorts. You can't drive any further up into the mountains or to any other villages without returning the way you came. Only the PostBus can go all the way over the Grosse Scheidegg, as the top part is closed to normal traffic.

>> Otherwise how one can transport the luggage from train to hotel and back.

In the car-free villages such as Wengen and Mürren, the hotels have small electric vehicles that they use to provide a pick-up service from the station on the day of arrival and a drop-off service on the day of departure.
