HOW TO FIND US
How to find the Kirchbühl Apartments
There are plenty of free parking spaces for you to use at the hotel. You may also rent a garage space for a daily price of 10 Swiss francs in the summer and 12 Swiss francs in the winter.
You can take the motorway from Basel, Geneva or Zürich via Bern or over the Brünig Pass (exit no. 25) via Luzern towards Interlaken. From here, take the main road to Grindelwald.
When you reach Grindelwald, take the main road until you get to the church, then on towards Oberer Gletscher. Drive for another 400m, and then turn left at the signpost towards the hotel (Kirchbühlstrasse).
Winter equipment, snow tyres and snow chains are required between October and April, and snow chain laws are occasionally enforced.
An annual fee of 40 Swiss francs is payable to use Swiss motorways. You can buy the ‘vignette’ pre-paid motorway toll stickers at the Swiss border, at petrol stations and at post offices.
If you need a parking space, we kindly request that you let us know in advance so one can be kept free for you.
Coaches can normally turn into Kirchbühlstrasse from Obere Gletscherstrasse.
Longer vehicles (three-axle coaches) must follow the Obere Gletscherstrasse until the turn in to Terrassenweg. You can turn round there and enter Kirchbühlstrasse from the other direction.
