Date Built

Grindelwald Town Centre
Grindelwald sits at the foot of the Eiger Mountain and close to the World Heritage Site of Jungfrau-Aletsch.  At the heart of the town is a relatively new development that provides retail outlets, underground parking, public toilets and open public spaces suitable for events or viewpoints from which to enjoy the spectacular scenery.  As the architect says, "... A new building with the BEKB, COOP and retail space develops from the ground and opens up to the station. The panoramic place on the roof offers a great view of the mountains. The parking is achieved with a three-story garage under the multi-purpose court"
