Lakes of Thun and Brienz
Lakes Thun and Brienz are the heart of the Bernese Oberland. While you enjoy a fine meal or a glass of wine on board a BLS ship, your eyes glide over the lovely banks with the magnificent historic castles to the highest peaks.
Canyons and Caves
For over a hundred years, the Aare canyon has been a safe footbridge and tunnel to walk through. This hike is an experience of nature of a very special kind.
The St. Beatus Caves, based on a legend, served as a safe haven for St. Beatus in the 6th century. The caves extend into the interior of the mighty Niederhorn massif.
Whether with Grindelwald-First, Männlichen, Schilthorn or Niesen - every mountain has something special to offer. Take the train up and down again or climb the mountains while hiking through beautiful landscapes.
Almost 100 original, centuries-old buildings from all parts of Switzerland, original gardens and fields, demonstrations of traditional crafts, many special events and 250 local farm animals make the past on the Ballenberg an experience. And the Ballenberg is unique.
In our faithfully furnished workshops, craftsmen demonstrate original professions with authentic tools: from carving, basketry, spinning and weaving to lace-making, forging, cheese making and baking. You can watch from close up and partly do it yourself.
