Description

Grindelwald is a Swiss-inspired town created by Roelf Voss in northern Tasmania, and is home to the Tamar Valley Resort. The town includes the Swiss Shopping Village, opened in 1985, which is entered through a re-creation traditional town gate. The gate is topped by a square tower and spire, and includes an arched entrance of stone. Such gates, usually attached to a town wall, are still found in many smaller European villages from the medieval period, for example Noyers-sur-Serein in France.
