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!
