Towns and landscape

The river Simme rises from several waterfalls in the mountains near the small town of Lenk. The river valley stretches out to Spiez, where it joins the river Kander and flows out in Lake Thun. There are only a few larger towns in the valley. Zweisimmen is one of them, and it makes a great base to explore the region. Gstaad, not actually in the valley but part of the region, is a well known town with luxury shops and hotels, and surrounded by a beautiful winter sports area.

Must do's in the Simmen valley

The Golden Pass line offers the best way to travel to and from the valley, and to make a day trip to Lake Geneva. A visit to the Stockhorn is recommended, as it offers a magnificent view on the Alps in the south and the Swiss plateau with Bern in the north.
