Ruins, canyoning and winter sport: in Wilderswil, everything is close by

Wilderswil’s 2,752 inhabitants enjoy a prime location in the southern part of the “Bödeli”. With more than 1,000 beds, the idyllic village has plenty of room for guests.
Tents and mobile hotels spring up all over Wilderswil in summer. Surrounded by nature, the campsites are an ideal starting point to discover all the benefits of the region. Winter brings an equally varied programme: sledging fans can find fulfilment in Saxeten, while skiers and snowboarders have several ski resorts to choose from.

Wanted: endless options

From the church in Gsteig and the “Old Mill” village museum to ruins like Unspunnen Castle, the list of activities in and around Wilderswil is long. For a special adrenaline rush, try canyoning in Interlaken, where steep cliffs await thrill-seekers. Visitors to the Schynige Platte can cross the Faulhorn to First on foot. The holiday region’s local mountain is a popular starting point for hikers.

Surrounded by peaks

It’s no coincidence that Wilderswil is known as the “gateway to the mountains”. For example, visitors enjoy access to the Bernese Oberland Railway, which runs from Interlaken to Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen. Guests in the Bernese Oberland don’t have to go far to feel free as a bird: skydiving, hang gliding and paragliding provide plenty of adrenaline and a stunning bird’s-eye view of the valley. The entertainment highlight just around the corner is JungfrauPark Interlaken. From bungee trampolining and the outdoor Segway course to rides on the Fun Shuttle, the amusement park’s seven themed areas offer the ideal activity for every age group.
