Tschenten is often forgotten by mainstream tourists as they all head to Sillerenbühl. Tschenten only has 4 runs and one lift and is in the shadow, however there are not many people so on busy days it's a great place for half a day of skiing. The slopes are red and blue, in the old days the world cup took... More

Being on Tschentenalp you have a great view on all sides of the valley and beyond. It has several hiking trails back to Adelboden Dorf/Village. This includes some trails which are more suited for starting the hiking week or for beginners as well as for those who do not mind to work getting downhill.

We went to Tschentenalp as part of our extended weekend away in Adelboden. Used the late ticket to go up (after 3:30pm) so only paid CHF 5 per person for a return trip, which is a bargain considering the general price levels in the country. After a 5min cable car / gondola ride you can enjoy the great views across... More

A few of us went up the gondola to Tschentenalp and unbeknownst to me one was frightened of heights. Yes, it is a smaller and perhaps not a modern gondola, I was more than assured it was safe with that said as it goes through the metal wheel system it does bounce and swing a bit. However the view down... More

Cable car goes up straight from the heart of Adelboden. Stunning views over Adelboden and it's surrounding mountains. House mountain for paragliding. Skiing is a bit limited with only two lifts available but for one day it is great.

Allthough we are commenting to the topic of Tschentenalp in general, we thought it worthwhile to mention how nice the sledging was. There are two slopes, one for beginners (#7) and for intermediates (#8). Both offer a fun and not too long / not too short experience, which is a definite recommendation in case you are in the area. Last,... More

This little ski area is conveniently placed in Central Adelboden but there are basically 3 (quite difficult) pistes which are not skiable unless there is a lot of snow.

We came here in the summer. The views are stunning and there are walks of varying degrees of capability including one which is suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs. The restaurants serve really good food too.

Difficult for walkers as the skiers (mostly young children) were quite difficult to avoid. Very good restaurant which was quiet with lovely views
