MOUNTAIN HOSTEL - naturally - easy - moving
June 22, 2012
Dear Mountain Hostel friends
Well, it's here at last! Summer is coming to the mountains! Crocusses are in full bloom, crystal clear mountain water splashing in the mountain streams and the marmots are playing in the alpine meadows.
And we are happy to inform you about some of our summer highlights - we wish you lots of fun by reading our newsletter!
Gery & the hostel team
Do you love the water?
The view of the black wild river Lütschine is right outside the windows of the Mountain Hostel. Sometimes tame as a cat, but sometimes black and roaring as well. Do you like Riverrafting? This is the ultimate white-water rafting adventure! In the middle of the beautiful mountains, at the foot of the Eiger Northwall with a view of the glacier at Wetterhorn and Schreckhorn, you can experience an adventure with the water! Visitors have many options: You can hike to the sources of the black river Lütschine, or try riverraft, waterski and wakeboard in Interlaken (20 km from Grindelwald). Relax from all day life and enjoy a bath in blossom pool at our partner Hotel Eiger.

The Adrenaline kick

An unforgettable experience! Every day at 5 pm, CHF 109 per person. For further information and bookings please contact us at Mountain Hostel.
I am Priska, you can meet me in the Mountain Hostel during breakfast. Since a couple of years I work at the Mountain Hostel already and my personel hint is like more traditionally and cool! My choice is: The big Mountain Spring Festival on Männlichen: Sunday, June 14th from 9.45 am to 2.30 pm. Experience Swiss tradition and folklore with an enchanting backdrop of the Eiger. Join us to celebrate the mountain spring and enjoy a programme of entertainment by various groups: Alphorn Trio Bärenried with flag throwers, Unspunnen National Costume Group, Wengen Yodelling group, Oberämmital Ländlerkapelle and the Trio Lauberhorn. The performers will bring an amazing show that you will never forget! I look forward to seeing you there!
