GIMMERWALD

Only one hostel
Close to Murren, you take a gondola (cable lift) to town (200 people)

No cars, no motorbikes

Nothing to do but hike

On a clear day, go to Sherlthorn. See if the owner of the hostel would ask her friend if you can stay in his barn. You will sleep on hay mounds with the sound of cows and their bells under you
