Visit the Bernese Oberland region and discover a fantastic landscape


The Bernese Oberland is located in the southern part of the canton of Bern. Lake Thun and Lake Brienz are two of the region’s most famous landmarks. Past these two lakes, a valley landscape, lush meadows, dark forests, mountain lakes and the rocky peaks of the Bernese Alps make up a beautiful landscape that offers many opportunities for outdoor activities and relaxing holidays.


During the summer, the Bernese Oberland is a perfect destination for hiking, taking a trip on the mountain railways, enjoying wonderful panoramic views and discovering dreamy castles and picturesque villages that lay hidden in the landscape. The imposing mountain threesome of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, make the Bernese Alps look very distinctive and as you can imagine, they are also enticing for ski tours and ice climbing etc. It’s no surprise that most tourists visit the Bernese Oberland because of its mountains. However, towns such as Gstaad, Interlaken and the picture-postcard mountain villages of Mürren and Grindelwald for example are also well worth a visit on their own.


The small town of Interlaken, located between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz and dominated by the impressive mountain scenery of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains, is the perfect starting point for exploring the Bernese Oberland. Whether you do so by foot, by boat, by taking one of the many mountain railways or cable cars, you’ll find endless opportunities for varied excursions. The town of Gstaad adds some real glamour to the region. Well-endowed with gourmet restaurants, luxury boutiques, top hotels and lavish chalets, Gstaad is a popular destination for the international jet set. However, the historic centre, the surrounding nature resorts and also the music festivals during the summer, make Gstaad charming for everyone.


Explore the Bernese Oberland - because a breathtaking landscape, a wide range of outdoor activities and the opportunity to enjoy pure nature in seclusion make this part of Switzerland appealing for a relaxing holiday with a touch of glamour.
