Berner Oberland
Berner Oberland

The Berner Oberland, is the higher part of the canton of Bern, Switzerland, in the southern end of the canton, and one of the canton’s five administrative regions (in which context it is referred to as Oberland without further specification).

The whole region consists of the area around Meiringen and Hasliberg up to Grimsel Pass (2,164 m [7,100 ft]), around Lake Thun (558 m [1,831 ft]) and Lake Brienz, and the valleys of many high mountains with the inevitable Jungfrau Peak (4,158 m [13,642 ft]), the area southwest of the Lake Thun with Kandersteg (connection to the Valais) and Adelboden, and the area round Gstaad and Lenk in the Simmental. The mountain range in the Berner Oberland south of the Aare and north of the Rhône are collectively called the Bernese Alps. Source: Wikipedia.
