The Simmental

A warm welcome

The landscape is gentle, the valley floor flat, and the mountain terraces enjoy plenty of sun. This is what makes for happy holidays in the Simmental.

The highpoints of our mountain summer include the Lenk Älplerfest, the seasonal parade of the decorated cows to and from the highest pasturages in St. Stephan, and the traditional Farmers’ Market in Boltigen. Summertime in the Simmental is simply a mountain paradise for cascading waterfalls, hikers, and bikers. The valley is family-friendly and has countless offerings for young and old.

Lenk is connected in the winter with Adelboden ski area, both of which are famous for their «Adelboden-Lenk… dänk!» wintertime slogan. Whether on the family-style Betelberg, on Metsch, on Bühlberg, on the Jaunpass (above Boltigen) or on the Rossberg (vis-à-vis Oberwil), wonderfully-prepared slopes await you!
