This relaxed holiday resort in the middle of the Bernese Alps is characterised by its village atmosphere.
In winter the idyllic chalet village and hikers' paradise turns into a winter sports paradise. With its numerous mountain transport facilities, growing number of wellness havens and family-friendly attitude, the idyllic chalet village at the foot of the Wildstrubel in summer and winter is among the most versatile holiday destinations in the Bernese Oberland.
Adelboden has been awarded the "Families Welcome" quality label. Several children's programmes during holiday periods show just how committed this resort is to entertaining children. And Adelboden is the first destination in Switzerland to have been awarded the Alpine Wellness holiday resort certificate.
The Adelboden-Frutigen-Lenk ski region is a tempting destination even for top athletes. 56 high-performance transport facilities provide access to a piste network of just over 170 kilometres. Winter hiking on the Adelboden sun terrace, cross-country skiing trails, a snow park, freeride arena, hiking and tobogganing trails invite visitors to explore the Alpine winter world - and several mountain guesthouses and Alpine huts provide the perfect excuse for a well-earned rest.
In summer the mountain countryside encourages you to slow down and consciously enjoy.
Adelboden boasts over 300 kilometres of well-groomed hiking and theme trails (including a wheelchair-passable circular hiking trail), as well as several cycling and mountain biking routes.
