Hint

Intro

Interlaken lies in the Bernese Oberland on an alluvial plain, between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz. The vacation destination, which is presided over by the three mighty mountains, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, is the starting point for numerous activities.

Description

By the beginning of the 19th century Interlaken in the Bernese Oberland had already become renowned for its impressive mountain scenery. Famous contemporaries such as Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Felix Mendelssohn traveled in these mountains. Interlaken's success as a tourist destination was further enhanced by the completion of the Bernese Oberland Railway in 1890 and the Jungfrau Railway in 1912.

As a vacation destination and convention location of international importance, Interlaken is an ideal starting point for countless excursions. Over 45 mountain railways, cable cars, chair lifts and ski lifts lead to 200 kilometers of pistes and a dense network of hiking trails. Excursion ships, including historic paddle steamers, ply the waters of Lake Thun and Lake Brienz.

Winter

In winter visitors benefit from the central location of Interlaken and the associated opportunity to every day pick their favourite among the ski regions of the Jungfrau Top Ski Region (Mürren/Schilthorn, Kleine Scheidegg/Männlichen and First) or the family-oriented ski region of Beatenberg or Axalp-Brienz. Over 45 mountain railways, aerial cableways, chair and ski lifts take athletes to 200 kilometres of pistes.

Cross-country skiers and toboggan riders also are well catered for in the vicinity. And there are over 220 kilometres of winter walking trails in Interlaken, Beatenberg, Axalp-Brienz, Habkern, Wilderswil and the Jungfrau region. Guests staying in the holiday region of Interlaken may take advantage of the daily ski bus transfer connecting Interlaken with the ski-region Mürren/Schilthorn, Kleine Scheidegg/Männlichen und First.

Summer

Trains to the Jungfrau region in the direction of Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen with connections to the railways to Mürren and from there to the Schilthorn as well as via the Kleine Scheidegg to the Jungfraujoch depart from the Interlaken Ost railway station. A fleet of ships, including one historic paddle-steamer on each lake, cruises on Lakes Thun and Brienz. Interlaken is located on the «Golden Pass» panorama route from Montreux on Lake Geneva past the luxury holiday resort of Gstaad to Interlaken and from there across the Brünig Pass to Lucerne.

Just ten kilometres away from Interlaken, on a sunny south-facing slope, lies Beatenberg-Niederhorn, a paradise for paragliders. For hikers there is an extensive network of hiking routes. The Niederhorn also provides a habitat for ibexes, chamois and marmots.

Wellness

In your element: experience the magical forces between the mountains and valleys

Untouched natural surroundings, crystal-clear waters and snow-covered peaks provide a sense of wellbeing. Romantic hideaways promise unparalleled relaxation.

Some hotels enchant you as soon as you see them. Around Interlaken, unique hideaways can be found that promise a relaxing break from everyday life. A luxurious boat house as a spa facility with views of the snowy mountains and hot pots on the pier are just two examples of the unique gems on offer. The power of water is evident wherever you go: The deep blue waters of Lake Thun, the magical turquoise waters of Lake Brienz, and the deafening Giessbach Falls are just as impressive in winter, too. For a particularly delightful experience, look no further than Brienz, where cheese fondue is served under the canopy of the sky.

Conferences and congresses

In the heart of Switzerland, beautifully situated between mountains and lakes, the Interlaken/Thun/Lake Thun region is rich in tradition and a matchless place for holding congresses: First-class conference facilities such as the Kursaal Interlaken Congress Centre with its historic premises and state-of-the-art auditorium, numerous hotels, incomparable events venues with meeting and banqueting facilities, as well as a wide variety of excursion destinations nearby, some of which are world-famous.
