FAQ Bernese region

The city of Bern itself is very special. The city is characterized by the Aare loop and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The so-called Röstigraben runs through the Bern region. The Röstigraben refers to the border between the German-speaking and French-speaking parts.

The Bernese region is one of the most populous and at the same time one of the most touristically interesting regions in Switzerland. The popular Bernese Oberland is endowed with an imposing mountain and lake landscape that is second to none. It forms a beautiful contrast to the hilly valleys with their stately farms lushly decorated with flowers all around. The Emmental is the best example for this. The Jungfrau region with the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau as well as the Aletsch glacier is one of the most popular regions within the Bernese region.

The highest elevation in the Bernese region is the largely unknown 4,273-meter Finsteraarhorn. It is also the highest elevation in the Bernese Alps. With the Great Fiescherhorn (4,049m), the Jungfrau (4,158m) and the Mönch (4,107m), it lies in the Bernese region on the border to the Valais region. Entirely in Bernese territory are the Lauteraarhorn (4,042m) and the Schreckhorn (4,078m). The Eiger is not an official four-thousand-meter peak, it reaches 3,970 meters above sea level

Another three four-thousander peaks are part of the Bernese Alps but belong to the Valais region: Aletschhorn (4,194m), Grosses Grünhorn (4,044m) and Hinter Fiescherhorn (4,025m).

Within the region there are countless viewpoints. One of the better known is the Harder Kulm on Interlaken's local mountain. At 1,322 meters above sea level, you look down on Interlaken and have the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau trio in the background.

In the Haslital you can cross the Triftbrücke and get an excellent view of the tongue of the Trift glacier and the turquoise blue glacier lake. The Trift Bridge was built on the model of the Nepalese three-rope bridges. It takes some courage to step on it. Already the approach through the Trift gorge by the means of an arial cable car of Kraftwerke Oberhasli AG is adventurous and in between there is a short mountain hike.

The lookout point Ballenbühl is located southeast of Bern above Konolfingen

From Wengen you can reach two beautiful viewpoints with a wonderful view into the Lauterbrunnen valley: the Leiterhorn (1,526 m) after a 60-minute hike and the Hunneflue (1,363 m) after another half hour.

The area around Meiringen-Hasliberg has three beautiful gorges:

The Aareschlucht is up to 200 meters deep and is like the Gletscherschlucht Rosenlaui with footbridges and through tunnels easily accessible.

The Alpbachschlucht can be reached after a 30-minute ascent and requires experienced mountain hiking.

The Gletscherschlucht Grindelwald is well secured and as a special thrill it contains a 170 m² net construction Spiderweb for scrambling above the thundering gorge.

Other gorges are the Wallbach Gorge near Lenk, the Chluse Gorge near Kandersteg, the Choleren Gorge near Adelboden and the Sense and Schwarzwasser Gorge in the Gantrisch Nature Park.

With its beautiful gorges, the Bernese region is also a hotspot for rafting.
