The Beauty of Springtime in the Magnificent Swiss Alps

April is a wonderful time to appreciate the magnificence of God’s creation. We stay in the comfortable Hotel Staubbach and enjoy the remarkable beauty of springtime in the Swiss Alps.

There is a wonderful variety of walks and activities to do. The Oak Hall team will give you information on the different things you might like to do and people can head off in smaller groups to see the things of interest to them.


Edelweiss and Spring Crocuses

The Alpine flowers burst into life as the snows recede, revealing the Edelweiss, spring Crocuses and the magnificent blue Gentians. The flower trail has 150 different species of mountain flowers.


The magnificence of the Jungfrau and Eiger Mountains

Lauterbrunnen lies below the mighty Jungfrau and Eiger. A spectacular feature of this cosy alpine village is the 300 metre Staubbach waterfall. The river has seventy two waterfalls and the village’s name means “many springs”. Inside a 16th century mill there is a fascinating museum of village life.


The heights of the Jungfraujoch by mountain railway

Should you choose to use the mountain railway and cable cars, you are whisked  into the heights of the mountain ranges. At 3454 metres, the Jungfraujoch is the ultimate in mountain rides, going right up to the top station with incredible views of the Aletsch Glacier and the valley below.


Relaxing at cafes in the picturesque villages

There is so much to see and experience. The Panoramaweg is a dream path for walking along the tracks in the mountains past picturesque villages and farms. There will be plenty of time to relax with a coffee or hot chocolate at sunny outdoor cafes.


Riverside walks and spectacular views

The Lutschine Promenade follows along the riverside. Wengen is quaint with its car free streets. Birg has a breathtaking 200 metre walk along a cliff wire mesh path with a sheer drop below. Gimmelwald is reached only by cable car and overlooks the valley. The chalets make for photo opportunities in the picturesque villages of Stechelberg, Isenfluh, Allmendhubel.


Cruising on the lake from Interlaken

Interlaken is the nearest town and is easily reached to explore the many shops and lakeside cafes. From here the lake steamers provide cruises on Lake Thun and Lake Brienz. Near the summit of the Schilthorn there are superb views from the Skyline viewing platform and the Piz Gloria revolving restaurant.


Thundering waterfalls inside a massive cave

The Trummelbach Falls are an incredible sight with ten waterfalls inside a huge cave. A walkway takes us alongside the thundering water as it crashes down from the glacier and melting snow.
