The Jungfrau Region is home to Europe’s highest (and most famous) alpine railway, snow-capped mountains and picturesque valleys. Here, beautiful vistas are a given and chalet living is a way of life. Whether you’re on a budget or a blow-out trip, there’s a hotel that will suit your needs. Here are some of our top picks, all bookable with Culture Trip.

Sitting pretty, adjacent to the picturesque church of Grindelwald, Gletschergarten is a fourth generation family-run hotel. Guests can choose between one of the newly renovated alpine-style rooms or one of the larger, beautifully-appointed apartments. When peckish, dinner is a lavish affair, with a varied four-course menu served each night and locally-sourced products on offer for breakfast come morning.

Like something plucked from your wildest Pinterest dreams, Boutique B&B Maison Bergdorf is a luxury hideout in pretty Interlaken. There are just five rooms here, all individually decorated – walls are clad with bright wallpaper and tapestries and the common areas have fully-stocked bookshelves. This chalet is serious about its art too, with an eclectic mix of antique and contemporary furniture and artworks.

Built in 1907, Hotel Alpenruhe was part of the first wave of hotels built in the Jungfrau region. Perched high up in beautiful Wengen, with views of the Jungfrau and Lauterbrunnen valley, there are 24 rooms here, each with balconies where you can take in lungfuls of fresh mountain air. Come morning, a lavish breakfast buffet of Swiss delights is served and the hotel’s terrace is primed for an afternoon tipple (or two).
