    Quote from Tina
    What I like about the area: Grindelwald combines so many interesting things for hikers: smooth green meadows, all kinds of rocks, an assortment of animals, snow, forest, steep rockfaces, and gentle hiking trails.

    It lies very close to the big mountains of Switzerland – when the weather is beautiful, the views are just amazing.

    There are hiking trails for everybody: one can hike high up or low down, walk in the sun or, when it’s warmer in summertime, in the shade. There are easy as well as more difficult trails.

    It is just a paradise for hikers.

    Because Tina grew up in Switzerland she’ll be able to answer many of questions you have about Switzerland –
    the country, its heritage, and its culture.
