Axalp, Brienz

#3 of 9 in Wildlife in Canton of Bern
Axalp is a resort area in the Swiss Alps, located in the Bernese Oberland. It is composed of several hamlets between 1458and. The resort sits on a terrace overlooking Lake Brienz, in the region of Brienz. Axalp belongs to the latter municipality.
In winter Axalp includes a ski area.
The flight demonstration Axalp is an air show of the Swiss Air Force on the shooting range Axalp-Ebenfluh in the mountains at 2,250 m above sea level above the Axalp in Brienz Canton Bern. It is usually held annually over two days on the beginning of October. In each case, at 14:00 clock the event will be opened by a Cougar, which comes out shot over the ridge and firing in a steep turn all flares. This is followed by performances by fire-fighting and rescue operations with helicopters. Then offer the fighter pilots with their target shooting the main part. Suddenly emerging from the abyss they fire on the bright-colored cloths, which are the targets, and pull their machines seemingly at the last moment before the nearby mountain wall high around in a screwing behind the ridge dive. The Patrouille Suisse shows the result of their respective standard program. A demonstration of the Cougar is the conclusion of the event.

  • Small but oho, always worth a visit. Beautifully secluded and yet not far away. A nice starting point for hikes

  • A nice hike, but attention it has many ticks. Treat your dog with tick agent beforehand.
