Ski resorts in the Bernese Oberland
Who invented them? The Swiss. No, unfortunately they didn't. Let's face it. In this case, it wasn't us. We imported the two wooden slats with bindings from the north. No big deal either. Now they're here - you can wobble down the ski resorts in the Bernese Oberland on them and make the Jungfrau Ski Region unsafe.
The winter paradise of the Jungfrau Ski Region
Once arrived and already under its spell: the Jungfrau Ski Region. Here, the ski resorts in the Bernese Oberland come together to form a unique winter paradise for all snow fans. Whether in the Grindelwald-Wengen, Grindelwald-First, Mürren-Schilthorn or Meiringen-Hasliberg ski areas - there is something for every skier and snowboarder. The entire Jungfrau Ski Region is located at an altitude of up to 2,970 metres and extends over more than 275 kilometres of pistes.
Adventurous winter sports enthusiasts can let off steam in the Jungfrau Ski Region on gentle powder slopes as well as on steep pistes and in numerous snow and fun parks. For the adrenaline junkies among us: some ski areas in the Jungfrau Ski Region even have race tracks and skicross parks.
With a direct view of the ice giants Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, a unique panorama awaits you in the Grindelwald-Wengen ski area. Energetic winter sports enthusiasts can let off steam on the approximately 103 kilometres of pistes. Due to the predominantly red-marked slopes, the skiing area in the Bernese Oberland has a lot to offer, especially for advanced skiers. Experienced skiers also have the opportunity to race down the world-famous Lauberhorn World Cup run.
Despite all this, beginners are not left out: a long blue run leads from the mountain station over Kleine Scheidegg to Brandegg.
Visitors with a particular thirst for sunshine will get their money's worth in the Grindelwald-First ski area. The sunniest ski area in the Jungfrau Region has 56 kilometres of pistes and is directly connected to the Grindelwald-Wengen ski area. The highlights of this ski area in the Bernese Oberland include the snow park for freestylers, which has routes for both beginners and professionals. As a visitor to Grindelwald-First, you also have to see the skicross course. Pure adrenalin!
Mürren-Schilthorn is the highest skiing area in the Bernese Oberland and it is precisely this mountain that James Bond also skied down - because around 56 years ago the filming of the legendary Bond film "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" took place here.
Both beginners and professionals can prove their skills here on around 50 kilometres of pistes.
In the Meirigen-Hasliberg ski area in the Bernese Oberland, visitors can enjoy around 60 km of pistes of all levels of difficulty. A special feature here is the ski racing centre. It offers a permanent race and training piste for national and regional associations, training groups and ski clubs. However, Meiringen-Hasliberg is not only worth a visit for experienced skiers: in Skihäsliland, beginners can hone their techniques without any problems or stress.
The Jungfraujoch in the Ski Region - a majestic scenery.
If you need a break from skiing, a visit to the Jungfraujoch in the Bernese Oberland is definitely worth it. You reach the Jungfraujoch - also called the Top of Europe - after a ride on the Jungfrau Railway, which ends at the highest railway station in Europe. A subsequent lift ride takes you to the Sphinx Observatory and its viewing terrace, where you can enjoy a breathtaking Alpine panorama over the UNESCO World Heritage Aletsch Glacier.
