If flying via Zürich, why not add on a couple of nights in Switzerland’s largest city? The country's medieval capital, Bern, is also a lovely place to explore – with its arcarded streets, grand squares and famous clock tower.
This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided, single-centre walk
  • picture-book village
  • stunning mountain and lake scenery
  • first-rate hospitality

Light-green meadows, bottle-green forests, purple and yellow flowers, blue lakes, white snow-capped peaks, houses of dark-brown wood, red geraniums in window-boxes - Switzerland delights with its colours. In the south-west, the Bernese Oberland is no exception, and the majesty of its scenery has been recognised by UNESCO, which has declared the mountains and valleys surrounding the mighty Aletsch Glacier a World Heritage Site.
Kandersteg boasts two tiny churches, a scattering of twinkly taverns and local stores festooned with fat marbled sausages, managed by proprietors as round as their cheese.
Evening Standard
Arguably one of Switzerland’s most exquisite lakes, emerald Oeschinensee is one of the jewels of the Bernese Oberland, set in an amphitheatre of mountains which at points rise sheer from the water. In the valley below nestles the picture-book village of Kandersteg whose inspirational mountain views are more than enough to tempt you onto the many well-waymarked paths which explore the broad Kander Valley, its various spurs, and the mountains above.
