Wooden Postcard - Grindlewald
The Eiger village of Grindelwald is surrounded by a commanding mountainscape. This mountainscape, the view and the many activities make Grindelwald one of the most popular holiday and excursion destinations in Switzerland, and the largest ski resort in the Jungfrau region. Thanks to its magnificent view Grindelwald attracted its first guests from the end of the 18th century onwards. The actual breakthrough of Alpinism occurred in the mid-19th century. Road and railway construction made Grindelwald much more accessible towards the end of the 19th century, which in turn also heralded the onset of winter tourism. The first cableway in the Alps was built here in 1908.
The wooden postcards with winter and summer motifs are beautiful souvenirs from a vacation in the mountains.
