Nestled between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz in the heart of the Jungfrau region, Interlaken became popular for its proximity to the mountains and lakes of the Bernese Oberland region.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Parasailing & Paragliding and Harderkulm. Escape the urban bustle at Jungfraujoch and Aletsch Glacier. Go for a jaunt from Interlaken to Grindelwald to see Grindelwald-First about 58 minutes away. There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Trümmelbachfälle, get your game on at Seilpark Interlaken, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at The Eiger.
