We are glad that we stayed here the longest days during our honeymoon trip in Switzerland. This is not the typical commercial hotel, so they provided not only the excellent service but also the lovely human touch. The location is perfectly great, even it is not beside the Grindelwald train station, as it is only a few bus stops away....

We stayed at the Hotel Gletschergarten as part of our honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful stay. The hotel is beautiful and full of character. The location is perfect, at the quieter end of town by the church but only 1 stop (1 minute) by ski bus to the First gondola and 4 stops (7 minutes)...

We stayed at the Hotel Gletschergarten for one night during a weekend trip to Grindelwald and loved it. The hotel is well situated at one end of the main strip, but they will pick you up from the train station for free if you need it. Its a short walk to the main area or to nearby trails. The hotel...
