Where to stay in Meiringen

Quaint Meiringen offers an authentic impression of Swiss life, complete with its chalets and pristine mountain hiking trails. On the main street at the east end of the municipality lie several mid-range hotels close to a collection of boutique shops and bakeries. This proximity will come in handy for picking up meringue treats--the town's reputed claim-to-fame and namesake.
