    Chalets

    A Chalet

    Like everywhere in the Bernese Oberland you'll find plenty of beautiful wooden houses, called chalet, in Adelboden.

    In the village centre itself, but of course in the hamlets outside in particular, there are excellent examples of this rural architecture. In summer they are still more picturesque with their surrounding small farmer's gardens and blooming flowers. It's simply cosy, and you'll feel like in past centuries.

    Church St. Anton

    View toward the choir

    Adelboden's church was built in 1433. To the left of the western door you can see a beautiful fresco from 1471, depicting the final judgement. Inside you find a nice wooden ceiling from 1488.

    In case you have good luck and the sun shines you'll be fascinated by the magic light in the church. Reason are the stained glass windows, a fantastic work of Augusto Giacometti, dating from the early 20th century.

    A great plain at an altitude of 6000 ft, surrounded by mountains. Snowboard, freeride, alpine and cross-country skiing in winter, hiking and climbing in summer. Cross-country run excellent for beginners and nature enthusiasts - not crowded and not much ups and downs. In June, a dream of mountain flowers and mountain streams. There's a special tour (about one hour) for wheelchairs (and prams) or people who are not fitness freaks. Two mountain restaurants/hostels.

    Engstligen Waterfalls

    One of the most impressive waterfalls in the Swiss mountains. About fifteen minutes walk from parking lot (no special shoes required). There is a bus every hour, or (recommended) you can take an enjoyable walk (about 1 1/2 hrs) along the river.
