We chose to stay at the Kandersteg International Scout Centre because it was the least expensive place to stay in the city. The city is very small and one of the benefits of staying here is they offer a free bus card for the entire length of your stay. Of course, you can choose to walk from one end of... More

Thankyou very much to all the wonderful staff at the Kandersteg International Scout Centre (or KISC). We have visited a few times in the last few years and always have thoroughly enjoyed every minute and appreciate the fun and friendship you shared with us. The centre is only a short bus ride from the Kandersteg railway station or a scenic... More

We visited in August 2014. It was amazing and one of the best trips I've been on as a scout. I'll definitely be revisiting in the near future. We thoroughly enjoyed the parade on August 1st. I recommend anyone with any sense to visit.

Camping in Kandersteg International Scout Center is the best experience you can get! With hundreds of young scouts from all over the world and the best staff team, it is truly is an international experience. The rooms are well organized and clean, and the facilities are good in cheap price.

We stayed here one night while hiking through on the Via Alpina. We stayed in the Australia room in the Old Chalet, which is one of their most recently renovated rooms. The room was simple but very nice and the rest of the property (including the bathrooms) were nice and well kept. We did not eat in the kitchen and... More

Having been here twice now, I strongly recommend anyone with the chance to attend any length of stay at KISC to do so. The challenges of hikes, to the sheer enjoyment of on site activities. Many of my best memories have been made in and around kisc. All the 'pinkies' aka the staff of the centre are always helpful, always... More

Thank you for your feedback. At the moment Kandersteg is covering itself with the first snow of Winter 2015. A very special moment every year again. More

In went with scouts and it was great. The range of activities on the site were great and so were the facilities. The food from the kitchen was great and the scenery was lovely. It only took us a day to get there from England. Would defiantly recommend it.

The staff at the hotel were super. Inspirational views. Lots to do in the area. Great setup if you are traveling with scouts, youth groups, and family. Arrive before four if you want to catch the bus to the center from the train station. Follow the signs.

We stayed here one night while hiking the Via Alpina across Switzerland. KISC (as they call it) was the least expensive lodging in our entire trip. Located right on the Via Alpina trail, and above a stream, KISC has an active, young vibe (due to the many Scouts from all over the world who stay there). We were greeted very... More
