Grindlewald Switzerland - Swiss Mountain Biking
This week's picture comes to us from Grindelwald Switzerland. Grindelwald is a small resort town surrounded by some of the most dramatic mountain scenery found anywhere in the Alps.
To find out where the trails are, you can buy maps at the tourist information office located near the train station. There is also a bike shop in town where you can get additional information as well as rent decent bikes for about $20/day.
For those traveling on a budget, there is a very clean hostel located in town. If you want to experience a less touristic version of the alps, you may want to continue on to nearby Kleine Scheidegg or the remote village of Gimmelwald.
To get to this area, catch the private train (not covered by Eurail Passes) from Interlaken to Grindelwald. Once in Grindelwald, you can stay, or continue on to Kleine Scheidegg & Gimmelwald.
