Family Destination

Families are welcome

Unlimited family fun! We are very conscious of this goal and want to offer families an unforgettable holiday stay in the destination Lenk-Simmental. The holiday resort Lenk, which has been awarded the «Family Destination» seal of approval by the Swiss Tourism Federation (STF) for many years, has geared its offers especially to families.

Family friendliness is at the focus of our efforts and is supported by all of the signing partner businesses – from providers in the children’s programme, various restaurants and infrastructure providers to the campsite and the SAC hut – as well as by the local population. With the quality seal of approval, we guarantee our guests that we comply with the quality criteria of the Swiss Tourism Federation (STF) and are committed to constantly improving and expanding our range of services.

Free children’s animation programme in summer and autumn

For twelve weeks – from 5 July to 20 August and from 27 September to 29 October 2021 – the free children’s programme will take place for our young guests with the SIMMENTAL CARD. Detailed information and dates can be found in the experience guide.

These experiences are fun for the whole family

Family holidays become something special through shared, unforgettable moments. Throughout the Simmental, a wide range of activities await young and old alike to be explored, experienced and taken home as a wonderful memory.

By the way, hiking is much more fun in summer if you are optimally prepared for it and make the outing even more varied with one or two games. In cooperation with the ElternLehre association, the «Wander-Büechli» was created, which can be purchased in our online shop and in the Tourist Center Lenk for CHF 4.–.

Wallbach Bad Lenk

Our mascot of the Family Destination Lenk

We would like to present you: Simmi, the mascot of our Family Destination Lenk. The soft and cuddly Simmental plush cow for home is a great souvenir for young and old. Simmi is available at the Tourist Center Lenk, in our Online shop and at the following partner businesses of the Family Destination Lenk:

And in winter?

Holidays in the snow always remain in very special memories. Here too, families get their money’s worth in the Simmental. We are here to help and advise you and have developed the guide «Skiing with children» (in German) for perfect preparation. So nothing stands in the way of the first pleasure on skis before going to the ski school!
