We have stayed in Kandersteg many times over the past 20 years. Last summer we had a comfortable stay in the Adler apartments. These are apartmentsare located behind the Adler Hotel, near the train station, and just off the "main street". Kandersteg is a very small town. We particularly enjoy the cable car and short walk to Oeschinensee, a beautiful mountain lake above Kandersteg...a great place for lunch. The towns of Thun and Spiez are both on Lake Thun. Bern is probably less than an hour away by train. Check out the website www.kandersteg.ch, for additional activities and lodging. Have a great trip.
