More about Meiringen

Close to Meiringen is the city of Interlaken which, as the name implies, is in a spectacular location between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz at the foot of the Eiger, the Mönch and the Jungfrau. It is the main town of the Bernese Oberland.

The pretty, traffic free village of Mürren can be reached from Meiringen via Lauterbrunnen. From Mürren, the highly recommended Schilthorn cable car climbs to the awe-inspiring Piz Gloria revolving summit restaurant, made famous in the James Bond film "On Her Majesty's Secret Service". An alternative route to Piz Gloria, from Stechelberg, takes you to the summit on board Europe's longest cable car.

The capital city of Bern, particularly its Old Town, is well worth a visit. Few cities in Europe can rival Bern for the way it has kept its medieval centre intact; a fact recognised by UNESCO placing it on its list of world cultural landmarks. It is renowned for its fountains, towers and bridges, the profusion of geranium filled window boxes (resulting it being voted Europe's most fl oral city in the past), and the 6km of arcades (very useful on a wet day!) that line many of the streets of greyish-green sandstone buildings.
