What makes Adelboden a pleasant place to visit is its charming qualities as the quintessential Swiss mountain village. It has a small parish church whose history goes back to 1433. Inside you can see beautiful frescoes and stained-glass windows by Augusto Giacometti.

Today Adelbodern, like so many towns and villages in the region, has turned to tourism as its main income earner. It is a popular ski resort, particularly for vacationing families. The place is also ideal for hiking and mountain biking during summer.

About 4 km outside the village is Engstligen Falls, a spectacular waterfall. You can reach it by car. People who are hiking the area can head for the 2,613 m (8,573 ft) Ammertenspitz.

Visiting Adelboden

It is best to go by car as it provides you the best option for exploring.
