The Eiger-village Grindelwald lies at 1'034 meters above sea level, surrounded by wonderful Alpine scenery. The impressive and justifiably world-famous mountain backdrop of the Wetterhorn, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau ensures that Grindelwald is the perfect Alpine holiday destination.

The Jungfraujoch is known worldwide as one of the most spectacular destinations in the Alps. The "Jungfrau-Aletsch-Bietschhorn" area is one of the most beautiful regions in the world, and was therefore named one of Unesco's World Natural Heritage Sites in 2001. A world of snow and ice awaits the visitor at Europe's highest train station, and offers a breath-taking view of the Aletsch glacier, at 24 km the longest in the Alps. http://www.grindelwald.travel/en/welcome.cfm

The meeting will take place at Sunstar Hotel Grindelwald**** (www.sunstar.ch),situated in the center of the Eiger-village. The fascinating distant views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau invite you to stand and gaze a while.

Grindelwald belongs to the German-speaking part of Switzerland. Besides German, most locals also speak French and English.
