General information

Meiringen is an atmospheric, quiet village that is located 595 metres above sea level in the Bernese Oberland region. Meiringen-Hasliberg ski resort can be reached by lift from the village. In good snow conditions, it is possible to ski back from the ski area to the village. Meiringen is situated at a low altitude, but has good connections to the ski and hiking areas. Meiringen has been around since the 19th century as a popular international holiday resort.

In addition to being a popular winter resort, Meiringen is also known because the famous crime writer Arthur Conan Doyle used it as a setting for one of his famous Sherlock Holmes novels. The famous crime writer had spent a holiday with his wife here in the English Court Hotel (now Hotel Du Sauvage). In memory of the writer and his hero a Sherlock Holmes museum now stands in the former English church of Meiringen; a true place of pilgrimage for lovers of this genre!
