Hi

I would like to ask where to stay in Jungfrau Region during end of November?
I know it's low season, mostly hotels are closed in Grindelwald, Lauterbrunnen, Murren and Wengen.
Though there are still few hotels open.

Although is low season, I still wish to stay in this region.
Browse through a lot comments, claimed that mostly are ghost town. Closed at everywhere.

Please recommend.

Hi Moniqueyoung. November is low season indeed; really in between tourist seasons. So smaller towns will indeed be quiet. If you prefer more shops and activities close at hand, a somewhat larger and centrally located town like Interlaken would make most sense. Wilderswil would be an option too; still small, but close to Interlaken.

Hi there, our favourite place to stay is Thun, the other end of the lake from Interlaken. It is easy to go to Jungfrau from there if weather is suitable (that would be a very expensive trip if mountain is covered in cloud!) but also offers easy access to other areas if weather dull - like city visits to Basel, Zurich Bern, Lucerne etc or south to Gstaad, Martigny, Zermatt, (though weather would also be factor. here) You can still easily visit Grindelwald, Lauterbrunnun, Wengen and Murren if you want to but have more options available. Read some of my posts about where we went this summer from base in Thun and you will see why we like it. It has its own attractions as a charming small city too with its castle and museums and attractive shops and places to eat.
I admit to being biased in its favour as we always stay there!

Hello Moniqueyoung,

If you really want to stay in the heart of the Jungfrau Regio I agree with Annika. Wilderswil is an excellent option. You're like a spider in a web there; close to Interlaken and therefore close to more. We have spent lots of holidays in Wilderswil and we have always found it the best place to stay. Of course, this is a personal opinion.

Have a nice stay, the Jungfrau Regio is the best!

Thanks for all the replies ;-)

Actually this is my first time to Alps. I would like to experience the environment and mountain views.
I hope to stay at least a night in the mountain areas.

I would like to know even the hotels are closed, and tourist commented small towns like Lauterbrunnen or Murren become hibernate, but still the locals are there right?

Hello Moniqueyoung,

There are always tourists in Switzerland, so not all the hotels will be closed. And yes, sure, there will be locals!

Have a nice trip,
