Getting There

Public transport

Thanks to its central location in Europe, Switzerland is served by international trains from over 12 countries. Within Switzerland, Intercity trains run directly from Basel and Lucerne to the Jungfrau Region. Travellers from Zurich have to change in Berne. The trains run every half hour. 

From Interlaken Ost station you can reach Grindelwald directly without changing trains with the Bernese Oberland Railway (BOB). The blue-yellow train has to be entered on the rear part of the platforms in Interlaken, as the train divides into Zweilütschinen. The journey takes 33 minutes.

Getting there

From Interlaken follow the main road in the direction of Zweilütschinen. There you turn left towards Grindelwald. The whole trip takes about 30 minutes and is partly winding.
