Intro

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.

Lenk is an authentic and family-friendly holiday destination with accommodation options ranging from camping sites to a 5* hotel, the Lenkerhof gourmet spa resort, with over 350 years of history. The former health spa used, and to this day still uses, a sulphur spring and prepares sulphur water for the spa. At Lenk, guests can enjoy the fresh Alpine air and, on clear nights, observe the star-lit sky, thanks to the low level of light pollution. The valley is renowned worldwide because of the “Simmental” cows, which originated in Simmental.
