The town of Grindelwald is located in the cantor of Berne, which is roughly 2 hours from Zurich.   The easiest way to get here is to fly directly into Zurich and catch a train through Interlaken.   Renting a car and driving is also an option, though parking in these little mountain towns is difficult and can be costly.  Make sure to check if your hotel allows for parking before booking!
