Nice place where to spend few hours and relax. Always very crowded. You can find internal and external pools, water slides, sauna, bar and restaurant, disposed on 4 floors.

Schloss Leuk

Reviewed By Pudik - Tel Aviv, Israel

The Leuk castle inside is empty, only wall are remained. The locals tries to keep the complex for some activity, such as rock Concerts, don't know effect of those attempts. But the historical center of Leuk is authentic and interesting for walking. All trail is half an our, with old buildings, narrow streets, and views on valley and Mountains.

Adelboden

Reviewed By QuinLabRat - Reading, United Kingdom

Hidden in the Bern countryside half way up a mountain (literally) is the touristy village of Adelboden.
It's an all year round attraction - hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter. It caters mainly to Swiss families who have been visiting for generations.
There are bars, cafes and cake shops galore as well as sporting shops and a good size coop supermarket.

Oeschinen Lake

Oeschinensee is accessible by foot from Kandersteg within 1.5 hours. The cable car operates in summer and winter season daily from mornings till evenings - non stop. In summer enjoy swimming in the lake, boat rides on the blue and clear water or just have fun with the toboggan run at the top station of the cable car. Several hotels around the lake offer rooms in summer. Restaurants are open in winter and summer. The region belongs to the Unesco heritage Jungfrau-Aletsch.

Reviewed By mmmill - Glasgow, United Kingdom

We visited Oeschinensee in mid-October, and were lucky to have a clear sunny day. We took the train from Thun to Kandersteg early in the morning to beat the crowds (which was a good choice), and then got the cable car up to Oeschinensee as soon as it opened. We walked down to the lake from the cable car, and walked all around the area for a few hours to admire the amazing views. Then we headed back to do the toboggan run (it was great fun!) before heading back down to Kandersteg. I would definitely recommend for a day trip!

Crans and Montana are neighboring communities connected and shared by the little mountain lake. There are nice little outdoor cafes, restaurants with sidewalk Seating and this place was rather hectic during our fall visit. There was a show horse event in town during our stay, which was free and open to the public so we went down briefly to check it out.During the Swiss National Holiday there were fireworks set to music over the mountain lake.
The place is even more popular during the winter season as the skiers take over the town. The ski lifts are very close and within walking distance and once at the top there are more connecting trails along the ridges and a large lounge with openair patio.
Crans-Montana is a somewhat exclusive resort town for those that love to ski and/or love to be pampered. .

Rafting on the Rhone with Valais Wallis Adventures was fantastic. We were a group of seven - ages from 5 years old to 72 years old! Three adults and four kids.
We were well looked after, safe at all times and everyone said it was the highlight of their holiday.
Do not come to this region without experiencing the alps and the valley floor from this unique angle.

Klettersteig Gemmi-Daubenhorn

Reviewed By ariel p - Portland, Oregon

This is an intense 8 hrs of harnessed climbing, lots of ladders. Spectacular views of Leukerbad, you can even see down to Leuk. When you get to the top you hike across a glacier and hike down the back of the hill to the gemmi pass cable car where you started from. Do your research and don't attempt this unless you know what you're doing/have significant experience rock climbing or mountaineering. You can rent the klettersteig/via ferrata harness sets and helmets at the top of the gemmi pass when you get off the cable car.

Gemmi Pass

Reviewed By Debra G - Springboro, Ohio

This is a moderate hike with a good combo of both ascending and descending climbs. Be sure to take water with you! We took bus from the Kandersteg Bahnhof (free with hotel discount card) to the Sunnbuel lift and then over to the Gemmi pass. We saw all ages of hikers, strollers, and wheelchairs along the way. As a novice hiker, there were some tough up hill climbs but nothing insurmountable, especially with my hiking poles. We stopped at the Wild Struebel above Leukerbad for lunch and a Cardinal before taking the lift down into town. This is a stunning place for photos. If you have a Swiss Pass, you can have a 50% discount on the lifts. We then took the bus to Leuk, train to Visp, Brig, then back home to Kandersteg. Beautiful views all the way!

Vins des Chevaliers

Reviewed By Migu01 - Sutz-Lattrigen

Der Weinbetrieb produziert neben den traditionellen klassischeren Weinen nun auch eine Reihe im Luxus Segment die „Lux Vina“ Reihe ist von den Weinen und den entsprechenden Preisen am oberen Ende der Skala. Völlig berechtigt. Wir hatten das Glück eine von Christian Gfeller (aus meiner Sicht einer der besten Önologen der Schweiz) geführte Besichtigung und Degustation zu geniessen. Der Betrieb ist topp modern ausgerüstet und die Investitionsphase ist noch lange nicht abgeschlossen. Wir erfuhren, dass eben eine Bestellung von 300 Barrique Fässer getätigt wurde um die Produktion weiter zu steigern und die Qualität auszubauen. Der Empfang im neuen Degustationszentrum ist beindruckend.
Auf Voranmeldung kann man auch ein Raclette geniessen. Sehr sehenswerter Weinbetrieb.

Walliser Alpentherme & Spa Leukerbad

Reviewed By LeMonte - Guildford, United Kingdom

We elected for the Roman - Irish Spa treatment where you go through a series of very relaxing nude, yes naked, treatments like saunas, steam baths, and thermal pools designed to cleanse and restore the bodies natural health levels.
It was my first experience and I am going back next year.
By the end of the two-hour session, you feel absolutely completely revived, even if the last plunge pool took my breath away so much I could hardly speak.
Not to be missed
