Meiringen, Switzerland - Heartland, Home of Melody

Meiringen, a bustling small town of 5,000, lies in a deep valley surrounded by high mountains, from which drop numerous spectacular waterfalls. Located on one of the most important and centuries-old trade routes through the Alps, Meiringen’s reputation as a tourist center started with Louis Agassiz’s scientific expedition to the Grimsel Pass in the nineteenth century and the coming of the car.

Today, it is the point of origin for more exciting Alpine bus trips than perhaps any town in Europe (Grimsel and Susten Passes, Rosenlaui and Grindelwald.) It is also the starting point for excursions to the famous Aare Gorge, formed during the last Ice Age, and the Reichenbach waterfalls. Michael’s Church is one of the most beautiful concert halls in central Europe and venue for an annual music festival in the summer.

Meiringen offers a great variety of restaurants, 2 large supermarkets, shops of all kinds, banks and ATMs, a fascinating local folk culture museum and excavations of ruins dating back to the first millennium.

If that’s not enough, an amazing number of walks, hikes and climbs originate within 30 minutes of the town and range from easy to challenging.

Meiringen is well situated as a central base for travel throughout Switzerland or as the starting point for excursions into the high Alps of the Bernese Oberland. Hourly rail service on the famed Brunig Pass line connects it in 35 minutes with the resort town of Interlaken and in 90 minutes with the city of Luzern.

"I can't imagine a more wonderful setting for our visit. Meiringen is a lovely town with accessibility to major cities. We went to Lausanne, Montreaux, Lucerne, Bern, Thun and Interlaken (many times), Murren and many points in between. What a great way to experience the cultures of Switzerland!" A. Cain

Customer comments about Melody, Meiringen, Switzerland - Heartland

"We thoroughly enjoyed our Untour and our apartment in Meiringen. Our host, Peter, couldn't have been more helpful, getting us a fan to help alleviate the heat wave we experienced. The apartment was perfect, across the street from a wine and cheese shop, steps from restaurants, shopping, and the train station." J. Spurr

"Peter, the landlord, was most accommodating and we enjoyed the property-the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was small (as advertised.) The apartment was very clean. Only issue for persons with difficulty climbing stairs as the property is on the second floor". D. Sindel

"The apartment was very good for my traveling companion and me. Although the apartment was small it was adequate for the two of us. It had all the necessities and was very private. It was quiet and in the center of Meiringen, a delightful town. It's location close to the train station and tourist information office was a definite plus. Although there was no view from our apartment, that was the trade off for the convenience of being in the center of town." Yvonne Klock

"A beautiful, well-equipped apartment that is in an ideal location". L. Stewart

"The apartment was complete, comfortable, and in an excellent location. Peter, the landlord/host, and his wife were extremely hospitable and helpful. The laundry facilities were great! The weather was hot at first, but the fan in the apartment saved us." Jim Graves

An Explanation of the Ratings:
The first column of figures is the highest score possible in each category. The column on the far right is the score for this particular apartment in this category. For this set of ratings, we have asked every Untour staff person who has seen the apartment to rate the individual features. Many of these staff people have been in a position to hear reports (good and bad) from customers over the years, so they offer a particularly well-informed perspective. Nevertheless, customer ratings will be included in the overall ratings as soon as possible.

Please keep in mind that tastes vary. These ratings give an overall sense of how most people feel about a factor; you are in the best position to know if your tastes and requirements are likely to be in the mainstream of opinion or if you have particular needs. If you have any questions about the meaning of any of the factors rated, or about this apartment, please call our office toll-free at 1-999-868-6871. You can nearly always talk directly with someone who has personally seen the accommodation.
