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.
Venture out of the city with trips to The Eiger Trail (in Grindelwald) and Murrenbach Waterfalls (in Lauterbrunnen). And it doesn't end there: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Jungfraujoch, pause for some serene contemplation at Schlosskirche, appreciate the extensive heritage of Kleine Scheidegg, and take in the dramatic natural features at Aletsch Glacier.
