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.
Change things up with a short trip to The Eiger Trail in Grindelwald (about 44 minutes away). There's lots more to do: get great views at Jungfraujoch, get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour, take in the dramatic natural features at Aletsch Glacier, and fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour.

To plan Interlaken vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates to Interlaken is an approximately 12-hour combination of flight and train. You can also fly; or do a combination of bus, flight, and train. You'll gain 3 hours traveling from Abu Dhabi to Interlaken due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Abu Dhabi in August, expect Interlaken to be colder, temps between 26°C and 14°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Zurich.

Zurich ©
The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Swimming Pools Unter Letten and Ufschotti Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Lucerne (The Nine Towers, Mt Pilatus, & more). There's lots more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Zurich, kick back and relax at Strandbad Tiefenbrunnen, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Old Town.

You can drive from Interlaken to Zurich in 2 hours. Another option is to take a train. Expect a daytime high around 28°C in August, and nighttime lows around 16°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 26th (Mon) to allow time for travel back home.
