/ Grindelwald Campsite
I'm looking at staying in Grindelwald with a small group next June and have my eye on one campsite in particular (however am flexible with it being so far in advanced), however they aren't replying to emails or picking up phones.
Is it unusual for Swiss campsites to ignore you during the winter? They open a few weeks before I plan to arrive, so I don't particularly want to leave it that late to organise it.
If its just this dodgy campsite (Camping Ruetti) then does anybody have any other suggestions for decent campsites around Grindelwald area?
It looks to me like Camping Ruetti is in Lauterbrunen.
A few years ago a group of us (6) stayed in Camping Gletscherdorf in Grindelwald. Although most of the site is filled with caravans there is plenty of space for groups in tents. I seem to remember there being decent shower block with washing machines and dryers, a ski room where you can dry kit and also another room with tables and chairs where you can cook and generally hang out if the weather's bad. It is about a five minute walk into the centre of town and probably 10-15 mins to the guides office and train station.
Hope this helps...
I stayed there several years ago, great location and within easy reach of all facilities with a pleasant walk along the river into the village
In Summer they don't have pitches marked out so you can come back at 6pm with your car and a tent or car is in your old parking spot next to your tent !
Cool cheers, I'll try getting in touch with Eigernordwablablahblah.... (forgot its name).
Anybody stayed at the Ruetti one near Grinedelwald before though?
