While we're still in the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic, you probably haven't been able to experience too many vacations or road trips recently. But, once things get back to normal, you need to put Kandersteg, Switzerland on your bucket list.
Just thanks to the Swiss Alps alone, it's one of the most beautiful places out there, and if you want to see some of the best views of the impressive region, you need to check out this 2,500-foot metal slide that provides folks with an epic alpine experience. Check out the incredible POV video above, before reading learning more about this awesome ride.
Per Travel and Leisure:
Hotel Oeschinensee's mountain coaster is a summer toboggan slide that gives riders sweeping panoramic views of the UNESCO World Heritage Site as they slide their way down. Riders mount their single-person toboggan which starts like a roller coaster and then turns into an epic slide with moving views of the Alps.
Cars are banned on the mountain so to get to the top, visitors must take a cable car or hike their way up. The hike generally takes about 1.5 hours to complete.
The ride is open from May through October then closed for winter. One ride on the mountain coaster will cost adults about $5 while a bundle of 10 trips will cost about $35.
Visitors to the hotel can also take a rowboat across the hotel's Oeschinensee Lake, take an Electromobile through the mountains or order a picnic (complete with wine!) to enjoy on the mountainside.
Pretty magical stuff, right?
I'd definitely be first in line to ride this thing if I ever got the chance. Though, I'd be just a little bit worried about any strong winds whipping around. You know, for safety reasons.
