Kanderrausch, listed on Booking.com (also on Airbnb)
1bed/1bath apartment in Kandersteg, Swiss Alps (Bernese Oberland)
Date: August 2017, 1 week

This 1bed/1bath apartment is on the 2nd floor (US 3rd), with an elevator, in a new chalet on the edge of Kandersteg. It is a 10 minute easy walk to the shops in the center of town. The apartment is small but well designed so does not feel small. It has two balconies with views of the mountains.

The apartment building is close to the train track which runs through the center of Kandersteg. This is the line used by the car train that goes south to the Valais and trains run frequently. You hear the trains, and can see them, but it really does not bother you. You are not that close and the noise is not loud.

I booked via Booking.com because their booking terms were better - I did not have to pay a deposit until closer to the vacation date.

For those who are looking for fragrance-free accommodations, this apartment did not have air fresheners but the bedding was scented (which is usual in Switzerland - their normal laundry soaps are heavily scented).

Kandersteg is a lovely town in the heart of the Swiss Alps, in a valley west of Grindelwald. It is a small town, surrounded by mountains. The walking/hiking is very good with several gondolas and buses to take you up into the mountains. See my Travel Articles - Kandersteg Hiking for more information.


The apartment is on the top floor, on the left (balconies on front and side). Parking is in front (black car is ours).
