The Canton of Bern region

Zweisimmen is in the Simmental area of the Bernese Oberland. It lies about 1 hour by car due south of Bern. The entire region, and the Simmental in particular, is ideal for a wide range of winter sports and summer activities including skiing, snowboarding, snow cross, hiking, mountain biking, cycling, horse riding among others.

Zweisimmen town lies at 1,200metres and the top of the Rinderberg (ski lift connecting with Gstaad) is 1,800m. The resort provides direct access to the prestigious resort of Gstaad all within the same ski pass. The season runs from beginning of December until late March/early April and even beyond that there's the Glacier 3000 which is part of the same ski area.

The area is extremely beautiful and unspoiled by mass tourism. It is generally regarded as one of Switzerland's best kept secrets.

Zweisimmen

Zweisimmen is a quiet, traditional Swiss village at the heart of the Simmental area and on the edge of Saanenland. It has many amenities including a busy railway station so you don't necessarily need to hire a car. Unlike some other villages which are primarily or exclusively for skiers Zweisimmen is a vibrant community throughout the year. There are tennis courts, a swimming pool and a very sophisticated rope-park within the village.

WINTER

Zweisimmen is a traditional Swiss village in the heart of the Bernese Oberland. Surrounded by beautiful vistas and miles of skiing in one of the most picturesque resorts in the Alps. In the winter the region has skiing for all abilities from family friendly slopes to great off-piste rides.

Zweisimmen itself has all the amenities of a large town but retains the traditional atmosphere with plenty of good restaurants and a ski lift up the local Rinderberg mountain which connects with the vast Gstaad piste area. The Gstaad ski area is full of traditional mountain restaurants and throughout the season there are snow park events, ski cross and night skiing for the more adventurous. Although the area is not renowned for its apres - ski there are few traditional bars dotted around the ski slopes with the highlight being a winter igloo serving gluhwein at the top of Sannenmoser. For those seeking nightlife the prestigious resort of Gstaad is a ski journey or 15 minute car journey away.

There are plenty of traditional Swiss restaurants around Zweisimmen including the infamous Wildhorn Hotel where you will find yodelling and delicious fondu. A cocktail in the Gstaad Palace is also a real treat of an evening.

SUMMER

In the summer Zweisimmen and the surrounding areas are perfect for walkers and hikers with routes of varying degrees of challenge within easy reach. Many can be combined with charming train journeys, either outwards or return or both.

There is an equally extensive range of cycling options with dedicated cycle tracks created specifically for recreational cycling, including many challenging mountain bike trails. A very popular activity is to use the extensive lift system to gain height and then enjoy an exhilarating downhill ride to the valley.

There are also plenty of lakes in the area for summer swimming after a long hike.

The world famous Montreux Jazz Festival is only a 1.5 hour car journey away from the Chalet.

“A beautiful chalet in a spectacular location - a memorable holiday”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2015

We had a truly memorable family reunion in this gorgeous chalet which easily accommodated the 12 of us. It had all the ambience of a traditional Swiss chalet but with the benefit of mod cons! The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, the bathrooms were fabulous and the kitchen beautiful and well equipped. However, the best thing about the chalet was the wonderful living space – we could really enjoy being together around the big dining table and in the lounge area with its cosy chairs and sofas. Terrific location – just five to ten minute stroll from the village and station, and with access to lots of fantastic walks. Spectacular views from the chalet – as you would expect in this glorious part of Switzerland. We really hope to be back one day!

“A home from home”

Chalet Calvert is a relatively newly built chalet with five comfortable and good sized bedrooms, including four doubles with sleigh beds, and one with bunk beds. There is ample wardrobe and storage space in the chalet, a modern well appointed kitchen, and a cozy lounge area with leather sofas and chairs. The chalet is situated five minutes from the centre of Zweisimmen with easy access to suermarkets and shops. It is in a quite and secluded hillside road and the highlight for the children was spotting the deer that wandered past the chalet in the evenings and early mornings. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to rebook next year.

Beautiful newer 3 story chalet perfect for larger families with children about 15 minute walk up a steep hill from slopes and shopping.

“perfect”

Reviewed 12 Feb 2013

Das Chalet war super für zwei Familien mit sechs Kindern! Viel Platz und eine geniale Raumaufteilung. Der grosse Esstisch war genial!

“Perfection!”

Reviewed 10 May 2012

This is without a doubt the most incredeible chalet I have stayed in. The location is perfect, really close to the centre and lifts and set in beautiful surroundings. A lot of thought has clearly gone into making the chalet homely as it doesn't feel like the usual rented accommodation. Strongly recommended! If you don't know Zweisimmen, you're in for a treat!

“Excellent chalet. Woderful views. Beautiful furniture. Yummy food.”

Reviewed 3 Mar 2012

We stayed here as an extended familly group and were looked after by our hosts who made sure that we ate well and were very helpful in every way. The Chalet is new but looks traditional. Very warm (it was very cold outside). Lots of hot water. The Chalet faces south so it was also sunny, however it is up a short steep hill so chains or a 4x4 are needed if it snows - and it did, big time when we were there. The ski slopes are all North facing, so on the other side of the valley and a 10 min walk away. Good road and rail connections. We were there for a week and found the skiing more than adequate with lots of varied runs and a large number of mountain resturants. We hope to come back for another family holiday here. Highly recommended.

“Home from home in Zweisimmen”

Reviewed 19 Feb 2012

I was slightly nervous about booking a chalet completely independently as it was something I've never done before and I was booking on behalf of extended family so felt under pressure to get it right. I need not have worried though... email contact with the owners was easy and seamless and the booking process was extremely straightforward. We were provided with a wealth of information before our stay and I received prompt and informative answers to the many questions I asked right up until a few days before we left the UK. We were all in complete awe of the chalet. We arrived after dark having spent the whole day travelling and it was such a relief to find ourselves in such warm and homely surroundings. Each of the five bedrooms is a good size and has ample storage space. The kitchen and living area was ideal for our large group; the kitchen being very well-equipped and having a much-needed dishwasher! The Sky TV also went down very well particularly with the men in our group and the 3-year old. The number of bathrooms also meant there were no queues ever! The chalet is in a prime location on the side of the valley in Zweisimmen offering stunning views of the piste down into the village and the cable car which runs to the top of the Rinderberg. We arrived by train from Geneva airport and I would definitely recommend arranging a taxi from the station if you have lots of luggage and taking advantage of the ski lockers at the cable car station on a daily basis to save you carrying equipment up and down the hill each morning and night. We used the locker room operated by the ski hire shop next door. It's free if you hire from them; we paid 4 Swiss Francs per day per person for skis and boots as we had our own equipment. Pay at the shop and they will show you where to go. There are other lockers in the same area which I think are on a first-come-first served pay-as-you-go basis, but we didn't look into these. Overall, we had an amazing stay at Chalet Calvert and would definitely consider a return visit if we go back to the same area in the future. Older travellers and families with young children would feel very at home here, but I would strongly advising taking/hiring a car.

“Excellent Alpine chalet located in the heart of the pretty Swiss ski resort Zweissemann”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2012

We rented this chalet for a new year's trip with friends and found it to be most comfortable and perfectly Alpine in character. The chalet is centrally located within the very pretty ski resort of Zweissemann. We were just a short walk from the ski hire shops and all other amenities, including a well stocked supermarket. The chalet itself was in a pleasing and attractive traditional Alpine style and was very well maintained. Each bedroom was a good size and we enjoyed a lovely, large communal area which was great to relax in after a day's skiing. The kitchen was fully equipped and boasted excellent amenities for self-catering. There was also a boot room and balconies from which to enjoy the scenic views. Zweissemann boasts great skiing and the chalet was just a short drive or a 10-15 min walk from the nearest ski lift. You can also travel to the glacier nearby which is a lovely day trip and has excellent skiing opportunities. I would thoroughly recommend this chalet for those looking to stay in a traditional Alpine chalet in a pretty ski resort.

“Wonderful!”

Reviewed 3 Nov 2011

Chalet Calvert is situated on the hillside in the lovely town of Zweisimmen. You have beautiful views over the snow-capped mountains and the chalet is lovingly decorated with luxurious interiors and large spacious rooms, perfect for a family holiday or a relaxed holiday with friends. The skiing is a short walk or drive down the hill which gives you access to the surrounding area and mountains and is also a 30 minute drive to an amazing glacier for guaranteed skiing even during warmer seasons. I would whole-heartedly recommend this property to anyone who wants a relaxed skiing holiday in beautiful surroundings.
