A majestic trio that moves the whole world! This is one of the most spectacular regions of the country and every year it attracts tens of thousands of tourists eager to enjoy the riches of this UNESCO World Heritage site. This Oberland, "land from above", is dominated by three peaks: the Jungfrau and Eiger (whose famous north face is one of the most difficult climbs in Europe) and the Mönch. With its lakes and mountains, it is the most popular tourist destination in the Bernese Oberland, both for skiers in winter and for hikers and mountaineers in summer. Interlaken is the hub and an ideal starting camp for most excursions. The first line of the Jungfrau Railway, connecting Interlaken to the Jungfraujoch, was opened in 1912, giving the region a valuable lead. It was Adolf Guyer-Zeller who developed the railway. The development of tourism and the hotel industry is due to the pioneers Peter Ober and Eduard Ruchti. By 1834, Interlaken already had 11 guesthouses and inns.
At the foot of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, the ski areas of Grindelwald, Wengen, Mürren, Lauterbrunnen and Interlaken offer 200 km of pistes. Above Grindelwald there are gentle slopes (First Region) for beginners and sunny slopes for all skiers. The Männlichen estate stretches from Grindelwald to Lauterbrunnen and Wengen. It appears as a large circle around the train stop on the Kleine Scheidegg. It's up to you to choose the objective of your descent. For connoisseurs, this is one of the most varied ski areas in Switzerland. You can spend a week there and feel as if you've never skied on the same slope before. The longest World Cup downhill run (approx. 2.5 minutes) is in Wengen, a classic of the White Circus.
To get a glimpse of the Mürren-Schilthorn estate and its "hell trail", watch the James Bond film "In the Service of His Majesty": the famous Pitz Gloria stands at the top of the estate, where the panorama restaurant (rotating 360 °) served as the setting for the filming. If you feel brave enough, after seeing the famous chase scene again, you can take part in the Inferno, the biggest amateur race in the world! Habkern and Saxeten are less famous, but their estates being less important, they have the advantage of being quieter. Lauterbrunnen-Isenfluh is a paradise for tobogganers.
