The following pictures were taken during a 7 night (6 day) holiday in early July 2007 based in the little village of Grindelwald in the heart of the Jungfrau region in the Bernese Oberland of Switzerland.


Travel around the area is easy using the excellent integrated transport system combining railways, buses, cablecars, funiculars and gondolas.
