Message from the Mayor

A warm welcome to our beautiful alpine village of Lenk situated in the Simmental of Canton Bern.

A warm welcome to our beautiful alpine village of Lenk:

For many years, Lenk has been a center of learning in the Alps and we at the Gemeinde (Council of Lenk) are very pleased about SHML identifying and selecting, among so many alternative options, our lovely village and valley for establishing Switzerland’s first Boutique Hotel Management College.

This is the heartland of Switzerland, where traditions are first and foremost Swiss, and a place where SHML will receive a lot of support toward its commitment of nurturing your personal and professional development. You will feel welcomed as honored guests by our Council members and by Lenk’s citizens.

Lenk is small but complete in terms of services, such post office, banks, supermarket, shops, hotels, restaurants, as well as a fast train service linking us to Swiss and European cities.

For your leisure and sport it is a small paradise. Besides an Olympic size swimming pool we have tennis courts, horse riding and so many options for mountain walking, cycling, climbing and even paragliding for the daring. In winter, our location is ideal for families because of some gentle skiing slopes, but we are not short of challenging runs for seasoned skiers in the Adelboden/Lenk region. Ice skating is another of our Winter activities, as is curling, without excluding the much sought after “after ski” venues where a warm drink or meal will energize you again.

On behalf of my fellow council members, we look forward to welcoming you to our corner of Swiss paradise.

Yours very truly,

Christian von Känel

Mayor of Lenk
