Grand Regina, at the heart of the Alps

Like a Snow Queen’s noble crown, majestic white peaks surround Grindelwald. In the crown‘s midst reigns the Alpine Resort Grand Regina, deservedly taking its name from the 2000 year old Latin word for queen.

Grindelwald is situated in the center of the Alps, between Geneva, Milan and Zurich. Geographically, the Alps form the core of Europe. One could say that the Grand Regina is located in the very heart of the Old Continent.

It is truly amazing that this area, nestled between three world famous cities, has remained so authentic. Modest, quiet, serene. A wonderful contradiction, from which this mountain village takes full advantage. Thanks to its proximity to several urban hubs, Grindelwald is easily accessible and thus the ideal starting point for weekend-, business- or shopping trips and day tours.

New luxury in the Grand Old Style

Since 120 years the Grand Old Queen sat enthroned above the town and valley of Grindelwald. Though she still carries her glamorous past with pride, it is time for a new beginning for the Grand Regina: Between 2014 and 2016 the Art Nouveau landmark building will experience a gentle but thorough restoration. The Grand Hotel will be restored in accordance with the historic plans to its old glory.

James Bond and Grand Hotel Regina

Grand Hotel Regina can be seen in the background in 007 movie “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” (1969) when James Bond (George Lazenby) meets Teresa (Tracy) di Vizenco (Diana Rigg) in ice rink, which was just in front of Hotel Regina. Nowadays, there is a bus station at the same place where that scene was filmed back in 1960’s.
