The Hasli valley
The Hasli valley, while part of the Bernese Oberland, is close to Central Switzerland too. It makes a great base to explore both regions. There's lots of nature all around: forests, lakes, high mountains and passes to the Jungfrau region, Central Switzerland and the Valais.

Central location and many activities
Meiringen is the central town in the Hasli valley. It's located on the flat valley floor, with high mountains rising up on two sides. Great scenery is right next door: the Aare gorge, where the rivier forces its way through the rocks, and the Reichenbach waterfall are at walking distance.
From Meiringen, you can easily explore a much larger region:
- Lake Brienz is a short train ride away.
- The south of Central Switzerland is quite close too: the GoldenPass trains offer a comfortable way to get there via the Brünig Pass.
- There are buses across several passes: the Susten Pass to Wassen in Central Switzerland, the Grimsel Pass to the Upper Rhone valley, and last but not least the Reichenbach valley to Grosse Scheidegg and Grindelwald. Each of these bus or car routes makes for a scenic trip.
Viewing points to be reached by cable car include Käserstatt and Planplatten with its panoramic Alpen Tower restaurant.
West of Meiringen you'll find the interesting Ballenberg open-air museum, with lots of historical information about Swiss culture and farm life.
