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.
Take a break from Interlaken with a short trip to The Eiger Trail in Grindelwald, about 42 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: have some family-friendly fun at Seilpark Interlaken, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Jungfraujoch, explore the striking landscape at Aletsch Glacier, and glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Interlaken trip planner.

The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Attractions like Strandbad Tiefenbrunnen and Ufschotti Park make great kid-friendly stops. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Zurich: Lucerne (Mt Pilatus, The Nine Towers, & more). There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Zurich, pause for some serene contemplation at Grossmunster, wander the streets of Bahnhofstrasse, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Strandbad Mythenquai.

Traveling by car from Interlaken to Zurich takes 2 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train. In July, daily temperatures in Zurich can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 8th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
