“Charming town”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We spent 8 days here and thoroughly loved the experience! Safe, clean, pleasant with an unhurried atmosphere. Friendly, helpful people and a general overall peaceful feeling. It is a picturesque, Alp town with cute shops, great architecture, good food, stunning views and nice attractions. The drive up the mountain to get there is 'interesting', especially if you are not as familiar with a manual transmission and winding mountain roads, but it affords wonderful scenery for your passengers :)

“lovely little town”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Lovely for evening walks. The woodcutters shop is well worth a visit. The family are so passionate about their work and will tell you all about the different types of wood used and which member of the family made each item. Super for little souvenirs as well as Christmas decorations and larger items.

“Go to Trottiland! Hire a scooter!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

It is well worth buying a day pass for the cable cars and scooters and spending a day careering down the mountain sides with the wind in your hair. Everything is so well signposted so its a very stress-free adventure!

“Beautiful & interesting hiking trails...”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Visited the Falls (easy trail) & climbed the giant boulders around there. Also hiked to the Cholera Gorge. Really cool to be able to walk through the gorge & climb out of it. Wished we had more time for the Trotti Trail, Adventure Park, etc.

“Great walking options in spectacular surroundings”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Our first visit to Adelboden and hopefully not our last. We were incredibly lucky with the weather for the week we stayed and all the cable-cars were working even though it was pretty quiet.
If you want a fantastic day, then do the Trottibikes from Sillerenbuhl. You get a day pass on the cable-car and a day rental of the Trottibike. You can then go up and down as many times as you like during the day - just leave the bike at one of the depots and pick up another at the top - brilliant! There are about 5 or 6 different ways of coming down back to Adelboden.
