The Apres Ski scene is a little laid back, but is still one of the livelies in the Jungfrau. There are a number of activities available, including a bowling alley; a sports centre and gym; a swimming pool; and ice rinks; and a sauna. The nightlife is on the quiet side, although there are 2 nightclubs that have a party going almost everynight. There are a few bars, most of the located in the hotels, where you can relax and have a few drinks. Many shops are available that sell almost anything you could need, as well as rent skiing equipment. There are a number of excellent restaurants that serve a wide variety of cuisine from around the world.


Grindelwald is the oldest of the three Jungfrau resorts, but also the least known. It is situated at the base of the Eiger and its setting and views are amazing, which make it one of the most picturesque resorts. Grindelwald has the longest sledge run in Europe, 15km long. The skiing is best suited for intermediates, but there are also some great areas for experts who don't mind to travel slightly. Grindelwald is a great place for families to go on skiing holidays, with an excellent ski school for people of all ages. There are also a number of non-skiing activities avalable, and the Apres Ski scene is quite laid-back.
