Meiringen-Hasliberg

Meiringen Hasliberg has made a name for itself, both nationally and internationally, during the last decade as popular summer and winter holiday region. Holding large events such as World Cup Ski Races, Freestyle World Cup Finals and the Telemark World Championships have helped to make the area known internationally.

Rural charm, family friendly, famous natural scenic attractions, varied sporting possibilities, a snow reliable ski resort and an attractive hiking and climbing eldorado describe the character of the Meiringen Hasliberg Region, which lies between three alpine passes: Brünig, Grimsel and Susten.
Fascination for the natural beauty that the region offers brought many tourists as long ago as the 1800's to the Haslital. The Oberhasli area was a very popular destination for many English climbers and holidaymakers during the heady days of the first alpine ascents. Since December 1999 the Alpen tower has been residing high over Meiringen-Hasliberg. It is the Alps’ newest panorama restaurant with a breath-taking 360° view. The Alpen tower can be reached comfortably and easily from Mägisalp with the new cable car which seats eight persons per car.The Hasliberg ski resort offers 60 km of sunny, snow reliable slopes in all degrees of difficulty.
The large number of natural gullies and off trail-skiing possibilities on the Hasliberg are a challenge to the many snowboarders who come to take some air!
For the cross-country skiers there are 35 km of prepared trails and panorama circuits. And for those on foot there is a large selection of prepared winter walks between Käserstatt, Mägisalp, and the sunny terrace of Hasliberg down to the valley floor in Meiringen.

The unique natural wonders, the mountains, combined with rural charm blend to continually offer guests in the Haslital something special.
