DETAILS

We choose Wilderswil near Interlaken, in the heart of the Bernese Highlands, to be our base to explore this spectacular region of Switzerland. The hotel Alpenblick in Wilderswil we use is run by a family who have owned this traditional alpine hotel for over 50 years. The chalet house was built in the 17th century and in 1957 was acquired by Adelheid Stockli who created the hotel that we have today. She passed it on to her son Richard and his wife Yvonne and together they have been running the hotel since 1980. They are looking forward to welcoming WalkingWomen and giving us a taste of the history and culture of their much loved home.

Our hotel is situated in the village of Wilderswil a short walk away from the famous Interlaken which lies between the impressive lakes of Thun and Brienz. Also in the shadows of the most mighty mountains Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. In Winter this is a very popular ski region with over 45 mountain railways, aerial cable cars and ski lifts. All can be used to access mountain paths to walk amongst this fabulous landscape.

We will walk amongst this incredible scenery and find more hidden routes. There are also options to use the historic railway and the various cable car routes to rise higher and walk amongst these giants.

The area we stay in was one of the birthplaces of tourism in Switzerland and was always popular with tourists from across the world. Interlaken grew up around a convent of Augustinian monks (1130-1528). It’s one of Switzerland’s oldest and most frequented summer tourist resorts.

We believe this is an important destination for WalkingWomen to bring guests to one of the wonderful places of the world and this time to experience what the Swiss call  “ ‘late spring’ with alpine flowers in bloom. To walk amongst wild flowers, mighty mountains and clear lakes is one of those beautifully reviving experiences. Last year we managed to take dips in mountain lakes and streams every day so welcome during our walks.
