Holidays in Wilderswil - Switzerland Idyllic village ideally located at the heart of the unique Jungfrau Region

The pretty village of Wilderswil is located just 4km from the centre of lively Interlaken and within a comfortable walk of Bönigen on the shores of Lake Brienz. Laying beneath the towering trio of mountains Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, which stand like stately sentinels over this traditional village, Wilderswil is ideally situated as the gateway to the Jungfrau region and its impressive range of stunning trips and walking opportunities. Especially close at hand is the sunny plateau of Schynige Platte with its botanical Alpine Garden. Its little railway dates from 1893 and you can explore even earlier local history at the ruins of 13th century Unspunnen Castle. The historical white church of Gsteig is worth a visit as is the working watermill from 1513.

Your time in Wilderswil - things to see and do

Wilderswil boasts its own mountain. The Schynige Platte with its botanical Alpine Garden are reached by a scenic rack and pinion railway (mid June to end September) which takes you up to over 1,300m. From here there are wonderful views of both lakes Thun and Brienz and the high mountains. This peaceful village offers an alternative to staying in lively Interlaken which is only a short bus or train ride away. Interlaken has two small mountains of its own, Harder Kulm and Heimwehfluh and is the stepping off point for lakes cruises - a must while you are here. The spectacular Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe  and the Schilthorn cable car are easily reached from Wilderswil. There are also plenty of magical visits around Grindelwald and the Lauterbrunnen Valley, so you will never be short of ideas on where to go!  Your journeys into the mountains are a joy in themselves, travelling on a variety of cable cars, funiculars and mountain railways.  Please CLICK HERE for our summary of the best the region has to offer.
