Places to see!

Interlaken is like a flat rate. Everything is included – simply the whole package. If you want to experience Switzerland, you have come to the right place. In addition to snow-covered summits, paradisiacal lakes, underground labyrinthine cave systems, Alpine landscapes as if taken from a picture book, and a local mountain - that isn’t actually one at all - await you. Here we have put together for you everything that you absolutely cannot miss when you come to Interlaken!

Schilthorn

What a view! High up on the summit of the Schilthorn, there is a fantastic view of a prominent trio. Allow us to introduce the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau – our three giants of the Bernese Alps. The 2,970 metres of the Schilthorn make it the best one for a clear view of the valley, the mountainous trio and 200 additional summits. Once on top, not only a nice view, but also the panoramic restaurant, Piz Gloria, await you. And, by the way, in the Mürren-Schilthorn skiing region, you will find a total of 25 slopes. Let’s go!

How to get there:

Good news: you don’t have to climb (but you could), instead, there is a streamlined alternative. With the aerial cableway from the valley station of Stechelberg or Mürren, you can reach the panoramic summit of the Bernese Alps in 32 mins.

Harder Kulm

Allow us to say that Harder Kulm is, by trade, Interlaken’s local mountain. Admittedly the H. K. is actually no mountain – but it’s a spectacularly impressive lookout point. You’ve never seen anything like it! At a breathtaking altitude of 1,322 metres, the observation deck literally projects into the marvellous mountain, valley and lake scenery of Interlaken. And you’ll feel like the queen or king of an entire kingdom. So high up, so sublime. Incidentally, this assertion is supported by the building behind you. The panoramic restaurant Harder Kulm resembles a castle (your castle?!) and sets the table with the most delicious dishes. Good to know: the Harder Kulm is also a perfect starting point for hikes.

Tip: you like it romantic? Go up there at sunset!

How to get there:

From the Interlaken-Ost railway station, it is only a short walk to the Harderbahn station. From there, it takes only 10 mins to reach the Harder Kulm with a modern funicular railway.

Operating schedule:

Jungfraujoch railway

Combine a bit of altitude with a little distance and a huge helping of pure nature – and the result is the adventure of a lifetime. Because riding to the Jungfraujoch with the Jungfrau railway is the discovery tour par excellence. The railway takes you through the picturesque Swiss backdrop, passing by mountains and valleys - it’s simply magical. Once on top, at an altitude of 3,454 metres, you are welcomed to the Top of Europe! The Jungfraujoch is an exciting viewing and experience platform that opens up for you majestic scenery over the Swiss central plateau all the way to the Vosges and the Aletsch glacier.

By the way, the last station of the Jungfrau railway is Europe’s highest railway station, which also explains the byname “Top of Europe.” 

How to get there:

From the Interlaken-Ost railway station, take the Berner Oberland railway towards Lauterbrunnen or Grindelwald, where you transfer to the Wengernalpbahn and ride to the Kleine Scheidegg. From there, take the Jungfrau railway directly to the Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe. From Interlaken-Ost, it takes about 2 hours.

The Jungfrau railway runs all year.

Beatus caves

Have you had enough of altitude? Then let’s go underground! The St. Beatus caves at Lake Thun near Interlaken are the ideal compensation for all the soaring trips to the mountains. A widely ramified cave system awaits you – with lots of exploring potential. About 1 km of it is walkable and leads you through an exciting environment around the waterfall, dripstone formations, wide halls and ravines. Do you know the difference between stalactites and stalagmites? After visiting, the St. Beatus caves, you certainly will! 

Tip: Why don‘t you make a detour to the cave museum? In the restaurant, you can indulge in a little snack. 

The St. Beatus caves are open every day from mid-March to mid-November.

Lake Thun

The name Interlaken comes from the Latin ‹inter lacūs›, meaning ‹between the lakes›. Our pretty little city actually lies between two glittering water worlds, Lake Thun and Lake Brienz. The former lies west of Interlaken, is 17.5 km long and max. 3.5 km wide – and thus the largest lake in Switzerland located entirely within a canton.

What you can do here:

First of all, a boat ride on Lake Thun is naturally worth your time. BLS Schifffahrt offers various trips. In addition, you can explore a few spots around the lake that are well worth seeing on the overland route, such as the lakeshore with a panoramic view of the mountains or the five castles on Lake Thun, for example. Cool water activities like canoeing or stand-up paddling are also offered!

Lake Brienz

The second option is Lake Brienz, to the east of Interlaken. Although its length of 14 km and width of 2.8 km make it somewhat smaller than Lake Thun, it is no less enchanting. This lake is also sparkling blue, glitteringly magical and gives a charming impression of endlessness, as it is embedded between the majestic mountain scenery and shimmers in the sunlight.

What you can do here:

Just like Lake Thun, a boat ride on Lake Brienz is also recommended. Since the lake is surrounded by picturesque mountain scenery and bubbling waterfalls, you can also start exploring the lake by land. How would you like a hike through unspoilt nature, pass by rustic villages with stylish wooden chalets? And for those who still think there’s not enough action, they may like to participate in one of numerous water activities offered on Lake Brienz: jet boats, water skiing, SUP – what’s your choice?
