Grindelwald evolved from ancient farming origins into a long, thin resort sprawling along the main road. In recent years it has expanded over the lower slopes of the mountain in all directions, but as most of the new buildings are chalets in the traditional style, there's no great feel of change. Unlike Wengen and Murren, it has a big year-round trade thanks to its honeypot attraction - the mountain railway cut into the Eiger rock face to the top of the Jungfrau at 3,454m, presently a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
