My son and I used the Hayloft as base for hiking in the Alps around Kandersteg and and then as the starting point for a longer trek. Fantastic hospitality, nice family-style breakfast and a location that is close enough to town and restaurants, but quiet and peaceful with beautiful scenery all around. Peter can offer great suggestions for hikes and provide maps etc.
The Hayloft was definitely a highlight of a fantastic two-week hiking trip in Switzerland. Highly recommended and we hope to return again some day.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hayloft is 1200m above sea level, south-facing and stands in about two acres of its own meadowland. The property is bordered by a trout stream and is very quiet; it has its own private access track and there is NO passing traffic. The house boasts stunning mountain views (over 3,600m) in every direction, clear views of glaciers and a magnificent waterfall. The Hayloft is about 1 mile from the centre of the village of Kandersteg in the Bernese Oberland. Kandersteg is a rural working village but has a parallel tourist-based economy. The village has all the expected range of facilities without losing its unique Swiss atmosphere. ... more less
