We were already a few days in Milan, Italy, so we decided to travel to the enchanting alpine village of Grindelwald in Switzerland by train. We started our trip at Milan Central Station, where we took a train to Interlaken, a nearby Swiss town, after a quick train change at Spiez. The journey takes approximately three hours, offering breathtaking views of the Swiss countryside along the way. From Interlaken, we transitioned to a connecting train heading to Grindelwald, which is a short and awe-inspiring ride. The final leg of the trip is a visual feast, surrounded by the majestic peaks of the Swiss Alps. Arriving at Grindelwald’s train station, you’ll find yourself immersed in the heart of this charming mountain retreat, ready to embrace the luxury and natural beauty that await.
