F.A.Q.

How can I reach the Belalp by car?


From the direction of Bern you can take the Lötschberg car train (Kandersteg-Goppenstein). From the car train exit in the Rhone valley you drive in the direction of Brig/Naters and after that to Blatten bei Naters. The Belalp is a car-free zone, so it’s not possible to park your car in front of our Lodge. It’s best to park your car in Blatten and board the cable car from there. We will take care of the baggage transport on the Belalp.

How is the transport of Luggage from Blatten bei Naters to the hotel organized?

If you would rather not carry your luggage in the cable car, it’s possible to rent a trolley for CHF 20.00 (one way) at the Belalp Bahnen (transport company). In the upper cable car station we have a Hamilton Lodge luggage depot. You can safely leave your luggage here, we pick up the luggage at fixed times.

Zweisimmen has several ATM’s to offer.
