Ore Smelting Plant

Part of Stechelberg's history includes the mining industry of Trachsellauenen.

Visit the past mining industry. Orientation boards provide on-the-spot information at the excavation sites. Visitors are advised to use experienced guides, partly in consideration of nature and private land but importantly due to the dangers of falling rocks and land collapses, particularly in the tunnels.

St. Beatus Caves

On the shore of Lake Thun, close to the holiday resort of Interlaken, the St. Beatus Caves extend far into the interior of the mighty Niederhorn massif.

Legend has it that this monumental natural creation, fashioned over millions of years, served St. Beatus as a safe refuge in the 6th century.

While in the 18th century the only access was along the picturesque pilgrims' path, the popular St. Beatus Caves are nowadays easy to reach by boat, bus or car.
