Bönigen – a holiday destination where you can relax!

Bönigen ahoy! The peaceful quayside attracts visitors to this idyllic village on the left bank of Lake Brienz. Can you imagine anything more enjoyable than listening to a concert on a warm summer’s evening with a cool breeze from the lake? Forget the pressures of daily life and allow your dreams to take over as you wander through the picturesque streets of the old part of the village and admire the beautifully painted old houses. Bönigen, though only a 5-minute bus ride from Interlaken, is an eldorado for those seeking peace and quiet. The popular destinations are still within easy reach – places such as the unspoilt region of Brienz – Haslital with its open-air museum at Ballenberg, or the Lütschinen valley with the well-known mountain villages of Grindelwald, Wengen and Mürren, or even trips to the Jungfraujoch and the Schilthorn.

Highlight
