A flood of festive ideas

Maybe it's just a fluke, but this year the start of the winter season in Adelboden-Frutigen coincides precisely with the beginning of the Advent season. The sun-drenched winter world of the Oberland not only creates a pleasant contrast to the often stressful pre-Christmas period in towns and cities - the Engstlige Valley also provides perfect gift ideas far removed from everyday life. As the list below shows, our impressive selection ranges from sporting and gastronomic highlights to cultural pearls from the region. They are exceptional presents that convey the authentic character of the Alps and anchor these experiences deep into our memories - so exactly right for the perfect Christmas.
