Lenk and the most beautiful valley end of the Alps


Highest in the Simmental, at the foot of the Wilstrubel massif, lies the beautiful town of Lenk at 1’068 m.

In the summertime, incredible hikes to mountain passes, uplifting tours in the high alpine regions, alpine meadows in full bloom, crashing waterfalls, and crystal-clear mountain lakes are all on offer. Lenk is a paradise for families and nature lovers alike.

During winter, the famous ski region Adelboden-Lenk and the included family-friendly ski area on the Betelberg  awaits you. Widespread and readily available hiking and cross-country skiing trails offer unbroken peace and relaxation.

Why do we say «at Lenk»?
Lenk is composed of two German words that mean «long nook», and that’s exactly the shape and function the town has at the top of the long, Simme River valley. Nestled up against the might of the Wilstrubel’s steep face, the locals simply state that they are «in the nook» (at Lenk)!
