Family friendly holiday destination in a landscape rich in contrasts.
Lush mountain meadows and sunny glades, high mountains and steep cliffs, tranquil alpine lakes and gushing streams: The Haslital offers exciting contrasts. Some of the most picturesque landscapes in the alps can be found here. As early as the 1800’s, the Rosenlaui Valley attracted countless landscape artists who were impressed by the gentle alpine meadows, quiet forests and wild ice and rock formations. That same fascination is shared by countless hikers, bikers and climbers today.
Fun and action are „in“ on the Hasliberg. The sunny south-facing slopes are accessed by mountain lifts and numerous hiking and biking trails await. This is home to the oldest Hasli Dwarf –Muggestutz- and there are two very popular „hands-on“ theme trails on the Hasliberg. Families come from far and wide to walk these trails and delve into the world of Dwarves.
In winter the snow sports area Meiringen-Hasliberg offers a wide range of activities. Skiers and snowboarders can enjoy the well groomed slopes. Skihäsliland near the mid-station at Bidmi is considered to be one of the best learners areas in the alps. A literal highpoint is the alpine restaurant Alpine tower which offers unique wrap-around views.
The Grimsel area contains a multitude of alpine lakes and rivers that make wonderful destinations for outings, e.g. Lake Gelmer and the Trift Valley. The waters of this area are utilized by the KWO to produce electricity and they offer interesting guided tours through their installations, some of which are underground.
The people of the Haslital have a deep appreciation of their culture and traditions. The Ballenberg Swiss outdoor museum bears witness to this. Over 100 original Swiss houses from all parts of Switzerland have been resited here. Take a walk around Switzerland and enjoy the antics of the over 250 farm animals on your way.
