Frutigen, Switzerland - Oberland, Home of Chalet Gudrun

Frutigen, situated halfway between Lake Thun and Kandersteg, contrasts wonderfully with the lakeside towns of the Bernese Oberland. It is a rustic mountain village of large, old wooden chalets with considerable charm among the most unspoiled, authentically Swiss parts of the Oberland Untour area. A town of about 3,500, Frutigen offers reasonable prices, high-quality shopping, restaurants and a very helpful tourist office. The old-time wooden box (Spanschachtel) museum in nearby Wengi typifies the region’s interest in wooden handcrafts. As gateway to the famous high Adelboden valley with excellent hiking, Frutigen station is an important transportation center.

Frutigen offers 2 large supermarkets, banks and ATMs. It has maintained its small-town Swiss character and yet is a wonderful base for day trips through Switzerland. Outstanding mainline express train service takes you in less than an hour to the capital city of Bern, beautiful Lake Thun, the famed resort region surrounding Interlaken, the high valley towns of Adelboden and Kandersteg and to Brig, gateway to
the famed resorts of Zermatt and Saas Fee on the south side of the Swiss Alps.

Customer comments about Chalet Gudrun, Frutigen, Switzerland - Oberland

"This spacious apartment has a great location near the train station and across from a farm. Easy walk to town for shopping and restaurants. Mrs. Steiner is a charming and accommodating hostess. I especially appreciated the strong WiFi signal and the Italian espresso maker. Although the apartment is near the tracks, I barely noticed any noise from trains thanks to the extra thick windows on that side of the apartment." Brian Taussig-Lux
