Grindelwald Museum

Storytelling has become an on-trend topic at seminars, workshops, conferences, meetings and events. And Grindelwald certainly has plenty of stories to tell – for instance, the adventures of the mountaineers who have scaled the Eiger, Wetterhorn or Schreckhorn, the legend of the “Challi-Groosi” or countless tales handed down by the 19th century “glacier pastor” Gottfried Strasser. Emotional recollections of the first ascent of the Eiger North Wall. Humorous anecdotes about the first English guests who came to spend their winter holidays in Grindelwald. The visit by Winston Churchill, who ascended the Wetterhorn in 1894. At the Grindelwald Museum, the village’s rich history and the tales of yesteryear come alive.

The museum is housed in the former school building next to the church. Its collection includes many old and valuable exhibits, which bring the history and evolution of the “Glacier Village” to life. You will also find a traditional “Velogemel” snow bike and “Horischlitten” horn sledge, an alpine dairy, paintings and much more.

Introduce your participants to the art of storytelling and plan a visit to Grindelwald Museum as your fringe programme.
