Switzerland - Bernese Oberland (Chapter)
This is the Bernese Oberland chapter from Lonely Planet’s Switzerland guidebook.
This is Switzerland’s epic outdoors. Whether you’re hiking in the fearsome north face of Eiger, carving virgin powder in Gstaad or gazing up at the mist-enshrouded Staubbach Falls, the Swiss Alps don’t get more beautiful than this.
- get dizzy on the zip-wires, hanging bridges and Eiger views on the via ferrata in Mürren
- hike the classically Alpine Faulhornweg, from Schynige Platte to Grindelwald-First
- be spellbound by 4000m peaks and the glinting Aletsch Glacier at Jungfraujoch
- restaurants & accommodation
