Quote: Verena Moser, President of Beatenberg Municipal Council –

Beatenberg, Europe’s longest village, is located at an ideal altitude of 1200 metres. The municipal district stretches from the Grünenberg Pass to the Justistal Valley and from the village of Sundlauenen and the famous Beatus Caves on Lake Thun to the top of our local mountain - the Niederhorn (1950m).

Some 1250 inhabitants live in this most beautiful place in the world (Erich von Däniken, best-selling author of non-fiction). The unique location, in the midst of an unspoilt natural landscape and offering a spectacular Alpine panorama, is certain to satisfy each and every wish. People living here really do have it all. Beatenberg is quick and easy to reach by car or public transport. The good variety of shops provides virtually everything for daily needs.

Schools are important for families with children: we offer an innovative school system from kindergarten to the 9th class of the secondary school. There are many other attractive options such as play groups for tiny tots, English for kids, a steel band for teens and a day school.

We offer sport and leisure activities unlimited: a modern aerial cableway speeds you comfortably up to the Niederhorn and one of the most beautiful holiday regions: summer hiking, climbing, paragliding, or winter walking, skiing, snowboarding, sledging - depending on the season! The village offers tennis courts, a natural ice rink in winter and an indoor swimming pool with sauna which is open all year round. In summer, what could be better than a refreshing bath in beautiful Lake Thun? Around 20 local clubs enrich village life with a variety of culture and sport. In short - Beatenberg has something for absolutely everyone! Beatenberg even has a village newspaper - the Drachebärg Zytig’ (Dragon Mountain News), which appears monthly (in German).

As you see: life here is good! We are so lucky to live where others take a holiday! So - once again, may we say:

Welcome to Beatenberg, the sun terrace of the Bernese Oberland.
