Kandersteg (population 1,100) doesn't have a compact village
center but instead is spread
out over several few streets.
The mountain scenery is fantastic
and I like the wood chalet-style with the homes, hotels and businesses.
this place hopping or is it dead in the summer?
combination of not too many tourists and locals.
Is there a lake and/or golf course in town?
car the only option?
service zips you up the mountain, stops in town, and then continues
on. Regular bus service from valley floor is also an option.
Does the place feel claustrophobic?
Could be a problem in this narrow valley.
Lots of choices
for acccomodations (hotels/ chalets) and do I have recommendations?
**** star and *** star hotels. All hotels and chalets are done
in wood chalet motif.
Could I spend a whole summer here or would I get bored?
One week would be my limit.
