Travel Guide and Destination Information
Interlaken is the captivating "capital" of Switzerland's beautiful Bernese Oberland and a must for every Swiss visit. The small town of Interlaken features various nice hotels and is a delightful destination for memorable holidays and the door to the Jungfrau region. It is surrounded by the cristal-clear lakes of Thun and Brienz, sparkling streams, fantastic falls and by the unique Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau mountain range.
The area around Interlaken presents a wide variety of attractions and activities, both in winter and during the summer month.
Interlaken offers spectacular views to the famous mountain trio "Eiger, Mönch und Jungfrau" and the Bernese Oberland. These mountains are always present from wherever you are in Interlaken. The famous "Höheweg" promenade that links the urban center of Interlaken West with the much more scattered Interlaken East not only offers superbe views of the Jungfrau summit, it is also one of the best locations in Switzerland for souvenir and watch shopping. The life on the promenade, lined up with street cafés is no less attractive. It is pleasant to stroll beneath the trees, glancing at the pavillion of meteorological instruments or the well-known floral clock in the casino gardens.
