Kandersteg in August

My son is going to Kandersteg with Scouts in August. I am considering going to stay in Kandersteg or close by while he is there but not to have any contact with him but to have an holiday of my own without been too far away. Any suggestions of accomodation and things to do over a five day period?

Hi there,



for accomodation.

The whole area is quite a nice part of the Alps, with the Loetschberg classic railway line connecting it to the north. Plenty of hiking, cable cars etc. and also daytrips to adjoining areas like Lake Thun and Brig/Aletsch.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

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.
