Wake up on the Swiss Alps with freshly fallen snow and get ready to try out the immaculately prepared ski-routes, whilst enjoying the breath-taking views onto the surrounding mountain summits. Here are six winter highlights in the Holiday Region Interlaken and the Jungfrau Region.
Holiday Region Interlaken
What sort of winter holiday would you like? Action-packed, active or more relaxed? The Holiday Region Interlaken offers something for everyone, whether or not your plans involve snow. Rapid descents on the ski slopes or the toboggan runs, winter hikes through enchanting scenery, ski tours, romantic mountain adventures by moonlight, cross-country skiing and snowshoe adventures or ice skating.
Winterlaken Card – for a magical world of winter adventure
Interlaken is the perfect destination for an unforgettable winter holiday. The vast mountain range offers a wide selection of exciting winter sports and other activities. With the new WINTERLAKEN CARD you benefit from free public transport and tempting offers at selected restaurants and indoor & outdoor activities. In addition, the card serves as your winter sports pass for the entire Jungfrau Ski Region!
Raclette with friends or family is simply a must for the winter season. So why not take this traditional culinary delight to a whole new level? The raclette dinner on a rafting boat guarantees an unforgettable cheese feast on the turquoise-coloured Aare river. Under professional guidance, sit back and enjoy the breathtaking sunset over the riverbank from Bönigen to Interlaken.
Funky Chocolate Club
Are you in the mood for a sweet challenge? Then you’ve come to the right place! The Funky Chocolate Club offers daily workshops where you can taste, create and decorate Swiss chocolate. Besides, you will learn more about the different types of chocolate, their quality and particularities. A personalised chocolate bar will then become your delicious souvenir of the experience.
The uniqueness of the Jungfrau Region
On the slopes, at the ice rink, on the cross-country ski trail or on a hiking trail. Skiing, curling, cross country walking or hiking with snowshoes. Total relaxation or pure adrenaline. By day or by night. For children or adults. In fine weather or when it’s stormy. The Jungfrau Region thrives on its unique diversity.
Regional and sustainable fine dining cuisine
In 1910 Johann Hauser expanded the Hotel Belvedere in Grindelwald. Then as now, the kitchen hearth stands at the heart of the “Stübli”. Local products have always served as inspiration for the overall regional and sustainable concept of the restaurant “1910 – Gourmet by Hausers”. The culinary skills of the chefs Thomas Wenger and Jonas Messer also combine traditional craftsmanship with state-of-the-art cooking techniques and plenty of creativity for a gourmet menu of exceptional quality.
James Bond brunch and skiing
At the revolving restaurant Piz Gloria on the summit of the Schilthorn high above Mürren, you can expect much more than just the breathtaking 360° panoramic view of the UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site! In the 1960s, this impressive landscape served as the backdrop for the James Bond film “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” and is now the stunning venue for the fabulous “James Bond brunch”. The spectacular culinary experience pairs perfectly with skiing and leaves nothing to be desired.
Skiing and sledging at night
Enjoy the magnificent winter landscape of the Meiringen-Hasliberg ski area in the Jungfrau Region at night! Explore the illuminated slopes on sleds or skis for an exciting and fun evening with friends or family. And to round off a perfect evening, settle down in the cosy Mägisalp mountain restaurant and enjoy a hearty cheese fondue or raclette. Good times are guaranteed here!
