Reuti, Switzerland - Heartland, Home of Polux
The Hasliberg, a mountain, is also the name of a community made up of 4 villages: Hohfluh, Wasserwendi, Goldern and Reuti. They share one local government, one mayor, one tourist office, one community center and one bank. It is not clear exactly when the mountain was first settled, but the area developed a unique culture and personality over many centuries. In some ways, the inhabitants lived in splendid isolation, which perhaps explains why these 4 small villages appear to be right out of “Heidi.” A casual stroll through any one reveals beautiful old chalets, immaculate gardens and gentle hints of a way of life from long ago.
The Hasliberg is best described as a hiker’s paradise, with the greatest variety and concentration of outstanding walks and hikes in the Heartland. There is a wonderful walk for families with children created around the stories of “Muggestutz,” a Hasliberg dwarf. Each of the villages has at least one or two good restaurants and small grocery stores supplying basic needs, and Hofhluh also features a fine little bakery.
The post bus connects the 4 villages with the Brunig train station, which offers hourly service to the famed Bernese Oberland resort of Interlaken (45 minutes west) and the city of Luzern (75 minutes north.) An aerial tramway connects Reuti with Meiringen down in the valley every 30 minutes. Cable cars also connect Reuti to higher locations on the Hasliberg (gondolas to Kaserstatt, Bidmi, Magisalp and Planplatten) .
Customer comments about Polux, Reuti, Switzerland - Heartland
"We loved the Polux apartment! It was a perfect size, well appointed kitchen and very comfortable bed. Our favorite part was the large balcony with the amazing view. We
appreciated Joanne letting us get in early and that she left hiking poles for us. The guest pass made transportation via the gondola to Meiringen easy and free." Christine and Gary Rice
"This is the closest you will get to peace on earth. I have stayed in many of Untours locations and this apartment was one of my favorites. You have everything you need and more. The best part of the day was getting home after a long day to enjoy the local wine and cheese in time for the sunset. Wait until you see the sunrise with your coffee too!" Cary B.
“It was beautiful, more than we expected. We never did get the TV to work, but I count that as a plus!! Why on earth would you want to waste a minute looking at a TV screen when the Eiger was right out your back door?” William & Dorothy Kuester
"This apartment is a jewel - wonderful!!" (on a scale of 10, rated 20!) N. Fraser
"A lovely apartment ... the lovely view was memorable." Bruce Leon
"Although we had a few concerns (the climb uphill, the double bed) the Pollux apartment in Reuti was truly terrific: clean, modern, well equipped (it even has a bed light!) Views to die for. Absolutely the best apartment we have ever had in five Untours." Oscar & Barbara Arnay
"Pollux apartment was spectacular. This time we went for the view and did we get it. Apartment was best part of this trip - best I've ever had in six Idyll trips."
"Jacqueline (caretaker) was very nice - a little work with English but BIG heart. She came unnecessarily early on departure." John & Nancy Ragatz
"No host but caretaker was very helpful and did a good job." Bill & Julie Gibbs
