Trip Type:
City break Sightseeing & culture Sports, adventure or outdoor activities Work / volunteering

Customer Travel Tip: Take a train to Grindelwald and go hiking in the surrounding area! It's easy to get to as a day trip, and the mountains are absolutely beautiful. There are lots of walking trails (the tourist office can give you a map), all of which are clearly signposted. My friend and I hiked without seeing more than five other people in the entire day, and are both determined to go back!

Liked: Small enough to feel manageable and for a lot of interesting things to be close together, but large enough to keep offering new surprises. The old town is gorgeous with lots of wonderful (if expensive) shops.

Disliked: It's very expensive, although it's not too bad if you buy your own food and then cook.
