Alan Rogers Review
This friendly and ever-popular site has a very imposing and dramatic situation in a steep valley with a fine view of the Jungfrau at the end. It is a busy site and, although you should usually find space, do not arrive too late in the high season. A fairly extensive area is made up of grass pitches and hardcore access roads. All 391 pitches (250 for touring) have shade in parts, electrical connections (13A) and 50 have water and drainage also.
Over 35% of the pitches are taken by seasonal caravans, chalets to rent and two tour operators. Family-owned, with friendly managers, you can be sure of a warm welcome and English is spoken. You can laze here amid real mountain scenery, though it does lose the sun a little early.
There are many active pursuits available in the area, as well as trips on the Jungfrau railway and mountain lifts. Small chalets and a hostel over the river provide for the many hikers and backpackers from all over the world. Mountain meltwater cascades hundreds of feet down the sheer rock walls of the valley. In winter the site operates a free shuttle bus to the local ski lifts, and large community lounges are available for apres-ski enjoyment. The restaurant offers traditional Swiss dishes.
