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 Matterhorn (in Zermatt) and Grindelwald (The Eiger Trail & Alpiglen). There's lots more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Jungfraujoch, take in the dramatic natural features at Aletsch Glacier, glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and take in the dramatic scenery at Trümmelbachfälle.
