From the Kandersteg train station you can either walk to the Centre following the blue KISC hiking signs (natural path - not suitable for suitcases with wheels) or the main road (20-30 minutes walk).  

Due to the renovation works to the Lötschberg tunnel, there is an increase in road traffic on the main road so we recommend that you follow the natural path or take the bus.
