Make a holiday rental house, villa or chalet in Bernese Oberland, Switzerland your home away from home

Bernese Oberland is an unbelievably beautiful region of Switzerland, where snow capped peaks, lush green valleys and the crisp, clear air will make you fall in love with the region before you even reach the front door of your Bernese Oberland chalet. It is impossible to describe the staggering beauty of Bernese Oberland in words, but the reaction of holiday makers when they first arrive says it all!

Things to do on holiday in Bernese Oberland, Switzerland

Bernese Oberland, Switzerland is a walking paradise. The pure natural beauty of the area and the limitless trails through deep forests, stunning glaciers and along the beautiful shores of Lake Thun mean walking holidays to Bernese Oberland are never forgotten.

Aside from offering the finest walking to be found probably anywhere in Europe, Bernese Oberland offers windsurfing, sailing and scuba diving in the crystal clear, crisp waters of Lake Thun. Of course, there is no shortage of challenging terrain for mountain climbers, rock climbers, mountaineers, horse riding and golfers. Taking a Bernese Oberland chalet is also a great idea for those looking to get their adrenaline flowing. Zorbing, wake boarding, bungee jumping and ice climbing are prevalent in the area too. As I am sure I have already mentioned, Bernese Oberland is a beautifully natural region, and it has been protected with the creation of many national parks and botanical gardens.

Places to holiday in Bernese Oberland, Switzerland

Ideally situated in the centre of the region, Interlaken sits between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, which makes it a perfect place to explore the region on foot. The triple peaks of Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau are no distance from Interlaken, and can be explored by walking, hiking or for the extremely fit, mountain biking. The unrivalled views from the numerous viewpoints on Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau are not only accessible to those who love to walk, as there is a cable car which climbs into the mountains, although a head for heights is essential!

There are a great number of beautiful, traditional Swiss villages in the region, which all act as magnificent centres for hiking and walking in the summer and skiing in the winter. The network of cable cars originating from Grindelwald leads to a range of short, long and multi-day walks throughout Switzerland, many of which are still suitable to enjoy during the winter.

Brienzersee is a great base for walking in Bernese Oberland. Holiday accommodation by the lake side in Brienzersee is nothing less than idyllic, and a great option when you first arrive at your Bernese Oberland chalet here is to take a trip on the paddle streamer which majestically crosses the Lake.

Weather in Bernese Oberland, Switzerland

Switzerland’s long, warm summers are ideal for walking in Bernese Oberland, soaking in the atmosphere and scenery, as average temperatures reach 25˚C, cool enough to leave the highest peaks with a dusting of snow, but warm enough to make the turquoise waters of Lake Thun pleasantly refreshing. Winters are of course cold, as the skiing, especially off-piste comes the main attraction drawing visitors to the self catering chalets of Bernese Oberland.

Travel to Bernese Oberland, Switzerland

The highest train station in Europe, Jungfraujoch, connects the Bernese Oberland to both Zurich (ZRH) and Geneva Airports (GVA). Cheap flights are available on a regular basis to both of these airports. Berne Belp (BRN) is the closest airport to the self catering accommodation in Bernese Oberland, but cheap flights direct from the UK to Berne are slightly harder to find.

Lots of nice additions, such as a wonderful book collection, dvd's etc. And the views - simply the best view in all of Lauterbrunnen. There are numerous other apartments in chalets in this community, but none have the front row seat of the alps, that this apartment has! The view is simply stunning. The apartment is within walking distance of the town of Lauterbrunnen, which is great, so you don't have to drive and fuss with parking. Such a great base to see the whole region. Most importantly, Diane Black is a wonderful host who took such great care of us. Highly recommend this apartment for anyone considering staying in the area.

The apartment offers a breath taking view to the most impressive Swiss Alpine summits, glaciers and walls like 'Schreckhorn' and the world famous 'Eiger'. We enjoyed the very luxury, comfortable and tasteful apartment after long days skiing and hiking, and the very friendly and attentive customer service. It's location is central and very quiet, as well as offers a range of great restaurants and coffee shops just down the main street in Grindelwald. We were traveling from the USA, California. This place is great for couples, families with older kids or friends sharing an accommodation.
