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!

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.

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.

She communicated well both before and during the stay and spoke great English. The house is modern and has everything you could need for your stay. The kitchen even has a cake tin and hand mixer so we made cake. The children loved the Tractors outside that they could ride around on and homemade road signs which were such a hit we have had to make some ourselves when we got back home. The house is in a small quiet village but close enough that you can get to lots of places if you have a car. We went to the Trift bridge, the Gelmerbahn, St Beatus Caves, lucerne, Mount Titlis, Bern and the Aare gorge all within an or or just over. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

                                                                                                    Myself and my wife stayed in the Konkordia apartment for 6 nights. We came from a stay elsewhere in Switzerland using the trains – which was straightforward due to the integrated Swiss travel system. On arrival in Grindelwald we caught the bus up to the stop as made clear in the detailed instructions from our host, Ursula. The driver indicated when we arrived at the correct stop, and Ursula met us for a short drive to the apartment. Without bags the apartment is a short walk to Grindelwald, which takes about 15 minutes. Ursula showed us around the apartment and settled us in. She was very kind and thoughtful throughout our stay and her English was great (much better than my German!). Ursula even looked out some weather forecasts for us after we discussed our plans to go hiking, which was very considerate. The apartment was as described in the listings – a well-equipped base for two people to explore the local area. It was clean, tidy, and neatly presented, with plenty of place to store clothes, and helpful little touches such as mats for muddy hiking boots. The water for the shower was always hot (useful when returning from hikes), and there was plenty of room in the fridge and ice-box for keeping the essentials cool. There was access to the building’s Wi-Fi (the family live in the upper levels, with the apartment occupying three rooms in the lower part) and this was useful for downloading maps and translating bits of text. There was a set of essentials needed for meals such as pans, plates, cutlery (enough for two people) and the hob-oven was simple to use and effective. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels and blankets, as well as some comfy chairs for sitting out on the patio. The main highlight of this apartment is the spectacular view. It is situated on the edge of Gridelwald, in a quiet residential area, looking out over the gentle green slopes of the valley and the imposing face of the Eiger. You can even get a peek at the icy blue glow of the glacier on a clear day. Very peaceful and tranquil. After a day of walking, just sitting and admiring the view – even when it was raining or cloudy! – was the highlight of this apartment and well worth the price on its own. This, combined with Ursula’s thoughtful care and attention, plus the general practicality of the apartment for those who like hiking, means that I would heartily recommend staying here.
