Intro

Kandersteg is located at 1,200 meters in the Bernese Oberland and offers a fantastic view of the Blümlisalp Massif. The peaceful holiday resort with about 1000 inhabitants with all its wooden chalets has maintained its village character and in summer is an absolute hiker’s paradise. In winter the emphasis is on Nordic ski sports.

Kandersteg is characterised by a broad spectrum of accommodation: from 4-star superior hotel to holiday apartments, camping sites through to international scout centre with dormitories there is everything. Several mountain guesthouses and huts belonging to the Swiss Alpine Club in the Lötschberg holiday region provide the basis for several-day mountain tours. Especially noteworthy is the culinary scene – in Kandersteg there are three award-winning restaurants.

Winter

Kandersteg is a snow-sure cross-country skiing paradise. Over 50 kilometres of tracked trails (classic and skating) are available in the valley floor and on the sun terraces. Downhill skiers are catered for at Lake Oeschinen and at Sunnbüel. The ski areas appeal to beginners, laid-back skiers and families.

The Kandersteg artificial ice rink is ideal for skating and curling. Around the village and between Blausee and Gemmi Pass winter walkers find their trail network. For ice climbers there is the Kander Valley and for fishing enthusiasts there is ice fishing in winter.

Summer

With its extensive network of attractive mountain, hiking and walking trails Kandersteg is a paradise for nature and hiking fans. The most famous routes lead across the Gemmi Pass straight to Leukerbad in the Valais, to Lake Oeschinen or through the wildly romantic Gastern Valley and finally over the 2690-metre-high, historically important Lötschen Pass to the Lötschen Valley.

Lake Oeschinen – accessible from Kandersteg by cable car or along a wide, family-friendly hiking trail – not only offers the idyll of a deep blue mountain lake, but also excites with a fast toboggan run. The Allmenalp via ferrata, undisputibly one of the most spectacular in the Alps, is a particular challenge.
