By train:

The most comfortable way to reach Grindelwald and especially the hotel Derby is by train. As the hotel is located directly at the station you are only a few footsteps away from your holiday.

International trains from more than 12 countries run to and through Switzerland. Especially with the faster Intercity-trains you reach Interlaken Ost very quickly and if there is not a direct connection changing trains is only necessary in Bern. In Interlaken Ost, you take the “Berner Oberland Bahn” direction to Grindelwald. Listen to the announcements and the marking at the side of the coaches as in Zweilütschinen, only the back part of the train will continue to Grindelwald.

Of course, you do not have to carry your luggage yourself! Our Porter will be pleased to help you, just inform the reception desk on arrival.
