Holidays in Kandersteg - Switzerland Charming village in the midst of alpine scenery

This is perhaps the ultimate idyllic Bernese Oberland village. A picture-perfect setting in the mountains with lush meadows and mountain streams and a village centre characterised by traditional wooden buildings and cosy restaurants. A favourite spot for walkers, the area boasts a huge number of marked trails, taking in some truly beautiful alpine scenery and the deep blue lakes of Oeschinensee and Blausee. Mountain biking is also popular and during the summer months the 750m toboggan run is great fun. Kandersteg is on the route of the Lotschberg regio Express, so it is easy to take a scenic journey north to Spiez on Lake Thun, or south to Brig and the Aletsch Glacier.
