Interlaken

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.
Bring the kids along to Speed Boats Tours and Harderkulm. Step off the beaten path and head to Collection de l'Art Brut and The Cathedral of Bern. Venture out of the city with trips to Lucerne (Franziskanerkirche, The Rosengart Collection, &more), Bern (French Church, Bundesplatz, &more) and Lausanne (La Basilique Notre-Dame du Valentin, Musee de l'Elysee, &more). There's still lots to do: stop by Basel's Old Town, see the interesting displays at Basel Paper Mill Museum, admire the masterpieces at Jean Tinguely Museum, and tee off at Golf Club Interlaken-Unterseen.
