Lenk in the Simmental
The village of Lenk lies right at the top of the Simmental in the Bernese Oberland, in a wide, flat valley against probably the most beautiful mountain backdrop in the Alps, the Wildstrubel. The tranquil holiday location has around 2,300 inhabitants and can be reached by car or train. The village lies at 1,068 m a.s.l., while the highest peak is the Wildstrubel at 3,244 m a.s.l. Wooden Simmental chalets as well as Alpine and mountain farming are typical for the green, tradition-steeped valley. In the winter, the Ski area “Adelboden-Lenk… dänk!” is popular and outdoor experiences can be enjoyed in the spring, summer and autumn.
