Your time in Adelboden - things to see and do

The mountains around Adelboden offer some memorable days out. Don't miss the natural spectacles of the Choleren Gorge, where the foaming waters of the Tschentbach pour into a deep rocky gull and you can swim in a mountain stream, or the impressive Engstligen Falls which are over 600m high. You can walk to both the Gorge and the Falls or take the local bus. For higher views, take the cable car to Tschentenalp and the vantage point at Schwandfeldspitz at 2,025m or try Silleren for its cycling and climbing activities. 

The picturesque town of Kandersteg and nearby Oeschinensee are well worth the visit. The lake is fed by glacial brooks and is renowned for its purity. There is an easy journey down to Spiez or Interlaken and from these resorts you can take a cruise on sparkling Lake Thun or enjoy mountain visits at Niederhorn and Harder Kulm.
