Out and about nearby

The greatest attractions of this area, suspended between two vast, serene lakes, are the spectacular views across the mountains, particularly the Harder Kulm, and the breath-taking Hohematte Park. Hours can be spent simply enjoying the scenery, before you go on to explore the restaurants, bars, cafes, and boutiques at the centre of Interlaken. As there is not a restaurant at the hotel, you will need to dine out in the evenings. The Des Alpes Restaurant, the Taverne, and the Cafe de Paris are all within half a mile of the hotel. To the north of Lake Thun, winding pathways will take you up the cliff-side; or, a cable car is available for those who don't want to hike. The St. Beatus Caves also sit on this bank of the lake, and are well worth an exploration. Water pools and waterfalls, and stunning rock formations fill their caverns. Outside the cave's mouth, you will find cliff-side roads that reward visitors with spectacular views, and wooden and stone chalet-style houses. Waterfalls, quaint chalets, and water sports opportunities can be found all around the circumference of both lakes.

Sports nearby

A golf course is 3km away and, closer to the hotel, there are many opportunities to try sports such as rafting, sailing, wakeboarding, or winter sports in the mountains. Hiking and cycling are excellent ways to become better acquainted with the landscape and experience the best views.

Highlights of the Bernese Oberland

As a place of incredible natural beauty and the birthplace of skiing, the Bernese Oberland is a destination with a host of possibility for active and cultural activity. Essential to any visit to this region is the Jungfraujoch glacier, known as the Top of Europe, accessible via the narrow cog railway (Jungfraubahnen) up to the Jungfraujoch train station, standing at 3,454m above sea level. The Peak Walk suspension bridge, crossing between two peaks above Glacier 3000, reaches a thrilling 107m long and affords walkers magnificent views of the Matterhorn, the Mont Blanc Massif, the Eiger, the Monch, and Jungfrau. We also recommend visiting the area around Grindelwald, from which it is easiest to board a rail trip to Jungfraujoch, to see the Aletsch Glacier, the longest glacier in Europe, and begin a hike or mountain walk through the Lauterbrunnen Valley. The adventure sports centre of Interlaken is perfect for lake swimming, boat cruises, hiking, biking, horse-riding, and water sports. One of the area's quirkier landmarks is the Big Pintenfritz, Europe's longest toboggan run, reaching 15km in length and descending a total of 1,631m.

Festivals in the Bernese Oberland

The festivals and celebrations in the Bernese Oberland tend to revolve around the prominence of winter sports, such as the AUDI FIS Ski World Cup in Adelboden and the International Lauberhorn ski races in January; yet, during the summer and autumn months, there are many more that celebrate Swiss culture and tradition. Unique in the winter months, however, is the Belle Epoque week in Kandersteg, when the Belle Epoque era is embodied in a series of sporting and social events. In July and August, the Lake Thun Festival brings the peaceful lakeside alive with musicals and productions from all over the continent. In October, the AlpKultur Festival in Lenk im Simmental pays homage to all aspects of the region's traditions for a period of two weeks, with an Alpine festival, Hornussen tournaments (a type of Swiss ball game), and a range of interactive workshops.

Gastronomy in the Bernese Oberland

Like much of Switzerland, cheese makes up a large part of the regional food production. The Diemtigtal, in the west of the Bernese Oberland, is the largest Alpine cheese-making area in Switzerland, and so is the optimum place to visit an authentic mountain dairy. Many farms will serve breakfast or lunch alongside a cheese-tasting, or allow visitors to watch the cheese as it is made. The organic dairy on the Schwarzenberg Alp in the Wiriehorn area is one such as this. The AlpKultur Festival in Lenk in Simmental offers visitors the opportunity to briefly live life as a mountain farmer: helping with milking, cheese-making, looking after the animals, visiting farmsteads, and sleeping in the Alps.
