Grindelwald is a municipality in the Interlaken-Oberhasli administrative district in the canton of Bern in Switzerland. The village is located at 1,034 m (3,392 ft) above sea level in the Bernese Alps

Long famed as a winter tourist destination with slopes for beginners, intermediates and the challenges of the Eiger glacier for the experienced, there are activities for the non-skiers, from tobogganing to groomed winter hiking tracks. It is the usual starting point for ascents of the Eiger and the Wetterhorn. Nowadays Grindelwald is also a popular summer activity resort with many miles of hiking trails across the Alps.

 Some of the action scenes in The Golden Compass were also shot in Grindelwald

Many scenes of the documentary film The Alps were shot in the region of Grindelwald, particularly on the north face of the Eiger. The James Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service includes a chase through a skating rink and Christmas festival in Grindelwald.[5]Grindelwald’s mountains were used as the basis for the view of Alderaan in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.[6]
