Bernese Oberland

Aeschi (860 m) and the somewhat higher situated Aeschiried (1000 m) lie on a sunny terrace and offer a wonderful view of the surrounding mountain panorama and of the Lake Thun. The original Peasant village is still marked of farming, folklore and tradition. If you want to escape the everyday hectic, you are just right staying with us. Aeschi offers an intact nature to refuel your batteries.

    Now at the age of 75 years I shall always remember Aeschi when I stayed during a shool holiday from Coventry in England in the 1950s at the age of 14. In my minds eye I remember seeing children playing on ski-bikes. And all those duty free cigaretes :). I still have a musical box fashioned as a ski lodge and small trinket box which I gave to my Mother. Kindest regards to all Martin

    we had the pleasure of renting a challet in Aeschi for two weeks in mid September of this year. I can not say enough good things about Aeschi, the town and the kindness of its people, I truly miss it already!! The tourist center in Aeschi particularly Tammara was great and extremely kind. It was truly a pleasure to visit a wonderful location such as Aeschi, I will be returning soon !!!!
