Travel Tips for Kandersteg

Baloon Festival

by eurotravels

At the beginning of August Kandersteg hosts a baloon week (it actually lasts for nearly a fortnight). Information is available from a temporary caravan that sets up on the main street opposite the tourist information office.

Catholic Church

by Rhondaj

I looked at this church everyday for months. When I got to Kandersteg I had in mind to look out for it, and I actually saw it on my first walk from the train station to our chalet!

It is on the webcam page of the Bernerhof Hotel, and I've been taking a peek at the weather on their site everyday for a while now. http://www.bernerhof.ch/

You can't miss this church, it sits out all alone in a field right off of Kandersteg's main street through the village. You will pass this church on a walk up to the Oeschinensee.

Not to be outdone by the Protestant Church right down the road, the Catholic Church also has English speaking services in the summer, and their's starts earlier in the season.

Just the Right Size

by Rhondaj

Kandersteg can be walked end-to-end in about a half-hour stroll. It would seem quite small to people who love cities, but if you are looking for a quaint, yet not too remote village, this is the place. There are two grocery stores, a Migros and Coop. Neither are very large, but you'll find enough... A few specialty shops, a few souvenir shops, etc. Plenty of restaraunts and cafes. All nestled together in charming buildings with a river flowing through it. Just beautiful. Each of us 'adopted' a mountain during our stay. Then we would remark on the beauty and the weather conditions of our 'own' mountain. Or conversely, we would say, "Oh look, your mountain is covered in clouds, while MY mountain is basking in sunlight." Here is Jenna in 'downtown' Kandersteg with 'her' mountain behind her.

Waterfalls

by sandysmith

The snowmelt from the mountains and their glaciers were creating many waterfalls in Kandersteg. It was lively to see them as we walked up the valley to the Oeschinensee - made up for the steepness of the path later on!

Eating In

by Rhondaj

Staying in a chalet, taking care of ourselves, helped us to feel a part of the town. Our landlady provided us with a shopping bag and each morning we would visit the butcher and the baker. For more supplies, we'd go to the Coop, or perhaps the Migros. I wouldn't trade these experiences for eating at a restaurant every day. Eating in was a real money saver too!
