The Schreckhorn mountain in the Swiss Alps, close to the Eiger and Jungfrau. The Oberer Grindelwaldgletscher is seen to the left of it, and the Unterer Grindelwaldgletscher is in the valley to the right.
Long famed as a winter tourist destination with slopes for beginners, intermediates and the challenges of the Eiger glacier for the experienced, there are activities for the non-skiers, from tobogganing to groomed winter hiking tracks. It is the usual starting point for ascents of the Eiger and the Wetterhorn. Nowadays Grindelwald is also a popular summer activity resort with many miles of hiking trails across the Alps
