Winter Town Life

Don't we all have those days, when it's a sunny winter day, and all we want to do is have a relaxing day in and around Kandersteg? Enjoying swiss town life and learning about the surroundings! We have come up with our best picks for a relaxing day in and around Kandersteg.
Oeschinensee, HIking, Snowy Mountains

Exploring the winter wonderland by foot

Oeschinensee is worth a visit in all seasons of the year.  The magnificent Oeschinensee freezes in Winter and gives you the opportunity to enjoy a stroll on the lake. Why not end it with a cosy hot chocolate at Restaurant Rendez-Vous.

Pinkie Top Tip: Restaurant Rendez Vous is run by a former KISC staff member.

Visiting lakes in Winter is a magical experience. Close to Kandersteg is the nature park Blausee. A mystic park with walkways all around the crystal-clear lake makes this into a memorable half day experience. Check out our website for all info on how to visit Blausee.

Culinary tour around Kandersteg

Experience Kandersteg with a culinary excursion with Swiss delicacies. Do you have an afternoon spare? Visit the local tea room Marmotte and taste traditional pastries whilst enjoying a warm beverage, admiring the views from the back of the bakery and browsing through local newspapers and magazines.

What is more Swiss than Cheese? Our local cheesery and milk shop Molkerei Hari offers you cheese from all around the area. Hari has been KISC’s milkman for many decades and he and his team enjoy chatting with Scouts from all around the World.

Chocolate and Cheese – uniquely Swiss

Did we trigger your taste buds and you have a whole day available? Visit the famous Cailler chocolate factory and Gruyère cheese factory and spend the day immersing yourself in a culinary experience of Switzerland. KISC can arrange for you the bus transport for the day and the entrances. Check out our programme page for more information about probably the most delicious programme we have to offer. But watch out: there is no guilt that day.
