Pilatus is located on the first floor of Chalet Jasmine. At 56m2, it is very spacious for a studio, but the real selling point for this accommodation is the incredible view from the very large patio. The North Face of the Eiger dominates the panorama. The studio has everything a holiday maker could wish for. DVD, flatscreen satellite TV, WiFi, a fully operational kitchen (incl. dish washer , etc.) and laundry facilities.
Set in the world famous Bernese Oberland, Grindelwald is the base for some of Europe's best walking trails and has become something of a hiking Mecca over the years. During the winter months with over 260 kms of slopes in the Jungfrau region you are spoilt for choice.
The chalet is perfectly located in a very quiet private road just a 7 minutes walk from the main street / railway station (Grindelwald Dorf).
The studio Pilatus is 56m2 (2-3 persons) with a huge terrace.
The apartment Shreckhorn with 3.5 rooms (2 bedrooms) 86m2 (4-5 persons).
Both are very spacious. Each one has a very large south facing balcony or large terrace (studio) with uninterrupted views of the Eiger North Face and the surrounding mountain world.
Schreckhorn has modern furniture with a fully equipped modern and brand new kitchen. Both have internet (WIFI), cable LCD TV and DVD player. There are covered parking spaces (carports) for the apartment and the studio.
Cleaning (at the end of your stay), linen, towels, kitchen towels, Internet and the carport - everything is included in the rates. Only a tourist tax (about 3 - 6 CHF per adults and teenies) has to be paid locally & additionally.
We are living in the northern part of Switzerland and we spent our winter holidays in the last years in Grindelwald. We love very much skiing and sledding. Also hiking in summer is marvelous.
When we got the opportunity to buy this wonderful apartment 'Schreckhorn' in the Chalet JASMINE we didn't hesitate.
Our neighbour, Rita, was very much excited of the studio 'Pilatus' and its huge terrace that she bought the studio immediately as well. The studio is just below the apartment.
We are the owners since July 2013
Christine + Paul purchased this apartment in 2013
Very wide and sunny balcony/terrace overlooking the ski area 'Kleine Scheidegg & Männlichen' and an incredible view to the Eiger North Face. The apartment and the studio are very bright (window front) and spacious.
Very good location. Close to the ski bus stop (100 m) to all skiing and hiking areas: Firstbahn, Männlichenbahn or Grund railway station for the train to Kleine Scheidegg (Top of Europe).
5 minutes walk to the railway station or the center of Grindelwald for shopping, dining or relaxing in one of the beautiful Restaurants and Bars.
The Pilatus apartment is light, spacious and comfortable and has a very well appointed kitchen and beautiful outdoor area with spectacular mountain views.It is only a few minutes walk from the centre of Grindelwald which has many restaurants and shops and a great indoor swimming pool. The agent Diarmuid is very helpful and friendly and a great source of local knowledge. Grindelwald is the perfect place for hiking and from which to explore this spectacular region. It is in the valley below the Eiger and the Jungfrau and very close to the breathtaking world heritage listed Trummelbach falls.

We had a wonderful 10 days in Studio Pilatus. It is a great apartment, very well presented and equipped. The location is perfect only a short walk into the centre or down to the other station and lifts.
We had perfect weather for our first visit to Grindelwald and will return to this apartment
Fantastic town (Grindelwald) for a hiking and sight seeing holiday. Beautiful scenery. The studio apartment was very clean, well maintained, centrally located and close to all facilities. We would highly recommend this place for other tourist.
Studio Pilatus was an excellent location for our trip to Grindelwald. It had a beautiful and relaxing view. Really nice, detailed, helpful information booklet made up by the owner's. This was an excellent home base for my husband's climbing trip with his climbing friend's. The train and bus transportation were very close. The owner's were very easy to work with since we needed to arrive a day earlier than expected due to meeting the weather window for climbing the Eiger. I stayed at the studio myself a night while they stayed in one of the huts on the Eiger. I had a very pleasant and safe feeling at the studio. I also was able to stay with the climb team in the second hut close to the top of Europe for one night. We really liked that your place was open and felt very spacious even with four adults. We were able to take a drive to Lucern Switzerland for a day trip. Thank you again for being such great hosts. The climb on the Eiger was a great success for my husband and his team. They even talked with the great swiss machine up on the Eiger climb, Ueli Steck for a few moments. Another highlight for my husband and his climb team. I look forward to coming back and staying here again.
The studio Pilatus was very clean and comfortable. The views from the studio are really amazing. All the description is accurate. The location is close to all accomodations and near the bus stop and train station.
Loved the view of the mountains from the patio - no better way to enjoy a relaxing evening meal. No better place to relax.
Clean and well appointed studio with everything you need to enjoy a relaxing week in the Swiss Alps. Everything that you could need in the kitchen to easily prepared meals so no need to go out to restaurants. Local bakery has fantastic crunchy bread and supermarket has good quality produce and local Swiss fare such as wines and cheeses.
Ideal as a base for alpine walking - either from the door or via train or bus. Just buy a map from the tourist office and the well-marked footpaths are easy to follow.
Lovely studio,. Comfortable, clean, exceptionally well equipped kitchen. Patio was fabulous and we enjoyed breakfast outside each morning and drinks in the evening looking at the beautiful view. Apartment was only a few minutes from railway station and centre of town albeit up a steep hill but then it is Switzerland. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation recommending the studio.
