Grand Regina, at the heart of the Alps
Like a Snow Queen’s noble crown, majestic white peaks surround Grindelwald. In the crown‘s midst reigns the Alpine Resort Grand Regina, deservedly taking its name from the 2000 year old Latin word for queen.
Grindelwald is situated in the center of the Alps, between Geneva, Milan and Zurich. Geographically, the Alps form the core of Europe. One could say that the Grand Regina is located in the very heart of the Old Continent.
It is truly amazing that this area, nestled between three world famous cities, has remained so authentic. Modest, quiet, serene. A wonderful contradiction, from which this mountain village takes full advantage. Thanks to its proximity to several urban hubs, Grindelwald is easily accessible and thus the ideal starting point for weekend-, business- or shopping trips and day tours.
Clean Air. Clean Water. Clean Living.
Summer days in the Bernese Oberland
Surrounded by majestic mountain peaks and in the grip of nature’s power, man has always felt a bit closer to heaven. Several historic and pre-historic points of worship and cultural highlights are testimony to this inspiring mountain spirit.
Whether you are looking for action in Interlaken, located between two beautiful lakes and known as the historic staging point of the first Alpine tourists, or preferring the peace and quiet of enchanted natural Rosenlaui Glacier Gorge, Grindelwald offers the complete spectrum.
Ski Paradise „Jungfrau Region“
Since the middle of the 19th century, Grindelwald has been a world famous vacation and excursion destination. Here amidst the eternal snow and ice one finds the practically boundless ski arena of the Jungfrau Region.
The area offers 210 kilometers of groomed slopes, with 45 lifts, reaching up to 2’971 meters above sea level at the top of the Schilthorn. The most spectacular run is the unique Lauberhorn, known from the World Cup, and open for all to enjoy.
The conditions for a winter stay could not be better. Your ski day starts with a mere two minute walk from the Grand Regina to the train station. The Wengernalp Railway carries you directly up to the Kleine Scheidegg - the starting point of the Lauberhorn race. This run of 4 km is the longest and at a speed of more than 160 km / h also the fastest downhill race in the world. The Lauberhorn skiing spectacle draws more than 30,000 people every year to the mountains. And the great thing about the course is that it is open for skiing for everyone when not in competition use.
Because it is variety that truly makes vacation out of travel, many more activities await you off the slope. In addition to cross country ski trails, try the breathtaking 14 km Bussalp Sled Ride, countless serene winter hiking trails, (some of which require snow shoes) leading to quaint alpine huts and mountain restaurants, comfortable train rides to the summits, horse-drawn carriage rides, tandem paragliding flights, bungee jumping, skating and curling rinks. After any of these activities you will be looking forward to relaxing in our 1’800 sq.m. Spa and Wellness Area.
