Travelling by train
Centrally located in Europe, Switzerland is served by international train connections to 12 other countries. Within Switzerland there are direct InterCity trains bringing you from Basel to Interlaken where there is a connecting train to Grindelwald. Travelling from Zürich and Geneva requires you to change in Bern. Trains run every 30mins. We recommend you to get to Grindelwald by train.
Travelling by car
Interlaken is accessible by car from Basel, Zürich and Geneva via Bern or via Luzern over the Brünigpass. Another option (summer months only) from the south is via the Grimsel or Simplon Passes, then taking the Lötschberg car train to Interlaken and following signs to Grindelwald from here.
