Perfect locations for the family visitors aiming Jungfrau ski region. You can use the free parking at the door and access the Grindelwald Terminal (plenty indoor parking) within 20 min. From Gindelwald, it is accessible by the new Eiger Express to top in 15 min. The room is tidy and cleaned perfectly daily. The breakfast is very well prepared and served with fresh and local food. Family feeling and super friendly to kids.

I stayed here for one night only; super comfortable rooms, spotlessly clean and a delicious breakfast. The chalet is beautifully located with some wonderful views. Interlaken is only short 15 min bus ride or a 36 min walk away. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Would love to stay here again.

This was my eighth visit to Chalet Gafri. This time I stayed in the smaller of the five rooms ("La Pequeña"). This is a very comfortable room in the main house, with its own separate entrance and private bathroom. As with all rooms it was warm, spotlessly clean, and it was particularly nice to have a plate of fruit provided when I arrived - which I enjoyed on my daily excursions. This was another five night visit. The weather was mostly very good. There was far less snow than last year, nothing significant below about 1500 metres. However I was still very pleased to be able to do two of my absolutely favourite winter hikes, which were still in snow and open. Day 1 (arrival). Fritz very kindly collected me from Wilderswil station. This day was a little grey, but I had time in the afternoon to visit Mürren (train from Wilderswil to Lauterbrunnen, cable car to Grütschalp, shuttle train to Mürren). I stopped for a coffee and cake in the Jagerstubli restaurant that forms part of the Hotel Bellvue. I walked back part of the way towards Grütschalp, picking up the shuttle train from the mid-way station, Winteregg. There was surprisingly little snow on this path compared to previous years. Day 2: Bright and sunny; rain during the night in Wilderswil had turned to snow above 1000 metres or so, very pretty. I wanted to see the new cable car from Grindelwald to Männlichen; this has now replaced the old red gondolas, and forms one side of the new "V-bahn" (the other section to Eigergletcher opens at the end of the year). The cable car starts from a brand new train station on the main B.O.B. line called "Terminal", just before the final Grindelwald stop. The cable cars are large, smooth and comfortable. From the Männlichen station I walked up for 15 minutes or so to the Männlichen peak - the last 50 metres were rather icy and the rope provided was essential! With the fresh snow, the views from the top were spectacular - I could actually see Chalet Gafri (espeically with the camera zoom). There are great views all around - down to the Lauterbrunnen valley, the Eiger/Monch/Jungfrau mountains, down to Grindelwald and across to Scyhnige Platte - closed in winter, but I could clearly see the station building that has been the starting or finishing point for many summer hikes. I spent quite a long time up there just enjoying the scenery, sunshine and ski atmpsphere (although I am not a skier). Day 3: I have written about this winter hike many times but it is so enjoyable - from Sunnbüel (Kandersteg) to Gemmi. It requires good weather, and so it is not possible to do every year that I visit - hence I always take the opportunity if it arises. The Gemmi web site was showing the path as closed on the previous day, so as usual I phoned the mountain hotel at the mid-point (Hotel Schwarenbach)- they were so helpful, and explained that the walk was now open again. The full day (early start needed) is: Bus from Wilderswil to Interlaken West, train to Spiez, train to Kandersteg, bus from Kandersteg station to the Sunnbüel cable car station, cable car up to Sunnbüel. The hike takes about 3.5 to 4 hours, from Sunnbüel to Gemmi. For the return, it is a cable car from Gemmi down to Leukerbad, bus to Leuk, and then by train from Leuk changing at Visp and Spiez. If you have a Swiss Travel Pass, everything is covered apart from the two cable cars (which you get at a discount with the Swiss Travel Pass). I do recommend buying the cable car tickets (or tickets for the whole trip if you don't have a Swiss Travel Pass) in advance, just to avoid the queues. I did this the day before at Interlaken Ost station. I would only suggest this walk if you are reasonably fit and if the weather is good - I did it one year in quite a strong, biting wind and it was tough going. On a nice day though, the snowy scenery is spectacular. The highlights are: Lunch at the Hotel Schwarenbach, which you reach about 1.5 hours after starting. Walk around the huge expanse of the frozen lake Daubensee. Views of the Pennine alps range (inc. Matterhorn) from the Gemmi. Thermal bath in Leukerbad Therme (pack swimming gear). One final tip: I did this on a Saturday and it was quite busy - a weekday might be quieter. Day 4: My other favourite - a hike from the Niederhorn mountain to the village of Waldegg. This is easy to reach from Wilderswil - take the bus (or walk) to Interlaken West, and change to the 101 bus to Beatenberg. Stay on until the last stop, that is the cable car station for the Niederhorn. The walk takes about 3.5 to 4 hours. There are one or two steep sections which can be slippery, as the trail is also used for sledges. However walking to one side of the path I found enough deep snow to act as a natural "staircase". This day started rather grey but was beautifully sunny by the time I reached Waldegg. A beautiful, peaceful hike with a section through woodland. There is a bus back from Waldegg; I highly recommend replenishing burnt calories with an Apfel Strudel at the Hotel Beausite just before the bus stop - this has a sun terrance with lovely views across to Lake Thun. Day 5: My last full day. I had a gentle walk directly from the Chalet to the town of Bönigen on Lake Brienz, and then walked around the lakeside path to Interlaken Ost. I carried on through the town to Interlaken West. I then took the afternoon boat to Thun. As usual in the later part of the Winter, the boat started from Neuhaus (a short bus ride from Interlaken West) rather than Interlaken West. This is because the water level in the lakes is lowered in preparation for meltwater later on, and so is too low for boats to use the canal to Interlaken West. Similarly the boats cannot enter Thun, and so the last stop is Hünibach (a 20 minute walk to Thun, or you can get off at the previous stop Hilterfingen and take the bus). Departure day: A final breakfast in the Chalet, and Fritz very kindly took me to Interlaken West station. The whole visit was a real pleasure from start to finish. Fritz and Gabi are perfect hosts. The Chalet is in such a peaceful part of Wilderswil, with lovely views and easy access to some fabulous parts of Switzerland. After a long and tiring spell at work, I left in a considerably better state of mind and health than when I arrived.

We stayed with Gabi and Fritz for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon in August, and we had the best time. We were kindly picked up from the nearest train station on the day we arrived, and dropped off again to catch our train when we left. The room was very nice, clean, and comfortable. We had a lovely mountain view from the windows and balcony. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. They happily made me a very generous vegan breakfast every morning, and decorated our room as an extra special touch. We planned which sights we wanted to see before our trip, but every day Gabi and Fritz had brilliant tips and suggestions to make the day run smoother or somewhere else to see/visit. Sometimes the thing they recommended ended up being the best part of our day! We can't thank you both enough for making us feel so welcome, and for helping make our honeymoon filled with beautiful memories.
