Normally we stick within the French borders on holiday but are very tempted by this, looks like an easy in /out place to get to without having to traverse a lot of mountain passes. Anyone been ?
Wow, what a comprehensive and excellent guide to the area which I am printing out . Thank you.I wrote the attached guide to the area, including Grindelwald, some years ago which you might find useful. The prices will have changed of course (accept the road tolls) but nothing else has changed much in over 50 years, thank goodness.
If you are in the area any length of time I would base myself at Interlaken from where you can visit many places locally - its at the hub of a wheel so to speak. Grindelwald is accessed from a blind valley and to visit other places you will you will need to keep driving in and out of the valley.
Yep. Ob1 is your man. I used his guide for when we visited. Just wish I hadnt been ill. I quite fancy kayaking the two lakes either side of Interlaken this year if we can fit it in.Wow, what a comprehensive and excellent guide to the area which I am printing out . Thank you.
Kev you should try this walk, it's a 2000ft drop to the Veneon valley if you make a wrong move. The pic was taken in 1983 I think.No way I could get Liz up there, Vertigo, and I think she's given it to me now, I used to run up and down ladders when I was younger and I mean run, now I'm unsteady on stairs.
You probably know Barryd, but you can also do rafting which tips you (literally) into lake Brienz at Bonigen. Great fun for water babes.:grin2:Yep. Ob1 is your man.

Yeah I can't fix that, someone hacked my slide shows and put some god awful acoustic guitar recordings on them. Sounds like thy were done in the back of a caravan or summit. Just mute them.I'm loving this thread :grin2: - thanks all
I want to go back to CH now...
Barryd: I'm not sure if there is a problem with your slideshow as I watched it but there was some god-awful guitar playing on it as a background which sounded all out of tune so I had to turn the sound down.You may want to look at that mate...
