Fancy hiking in the Bernese Oberland?

Is hiking in the Bernese Oberland sir or madam’s pleasure? Then, how good that you have chosen Hotel Seaside in Spiez on Lake Thun. Imposing mountains, rolling hills, spectacular ridges, and idyllic mountain pastures as far as the eye can see await you. How do you get there? It starts right in front of the doorstep of your seminar hotel in Switzerland. How wonderfully fresh the air is, how crystal clear the views, and how beautiful the colours of nature are. If we want to describe this world that surrounds us, many words come to mind: exciting, promising, unique ... But none is as apt as ‘diverse’. Visit Hotel Seaside and convince yourself of the unique beauty of this region while hiking in the Bernese Oberland.

Hiking in the Bernese Oberland – in every season!

Varied and unspoilt landscapes entice you to hike on Lake Thun and to linger in the valley and on the mountains.


Experience the most vibrant season at its most glorious and draw energy from nature’s awakening. We recommend an invigorating hike along the picturesque shores of Lake Thun during our colourful spring or an excursion to the nature reserves and moorlands of the Bernese Oberland.


Escape the summer heat in the valley and head for the mountains above the tree line. Whether easy tours for beginners or challenging routes for ambitious mountaineers, well signposted hiking trails lead you directly from Hotel Seaside to the summit of your holiday happiness. We recommend a refreshing swim in the picturesque lake on your return.


Golden sunrays, mild temperatures and the agony of choice: panoramic hiking trails, roundtrips, high-altitude trails as well as pilgrim routes and adventure trails facing the legendary mountain silhouettes of the Eiger,  Mönch, and Jungfrau will certainly amaze you.


During the cold season ultimate adventure awaits you. The Aletsch glacier, the longest glacier in Europe at the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch, awaits you with unique impressions and hiking fun on its eternal ice.
