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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Lauterbrunnen Valley Waterfalls and Mystery Rooms. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Ballenberg, Swiss Open-Air Museum and Jean Tinguely Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Basel (Basel Paper Mill Museum, Basel's Old Town, &more), Bachalpsee Lake (in Grindelwald) and Wengen Mannlichen Aerial Cableway (in Wengen). There's lots more to do: indulge in some culinary diversions at Interlaken Walking Tours, take in the awesome beauty at Maennlichen, glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and take in the dramatic scenery at Staubbach Waterfall.
