Nestled between the stunning turquoise waters of Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, Interlaken offers the quintessential “Swiss” experience. Whenever we’re travelling with friends or family who have not yet been to Switzerland, Interlaken is always on the list of “must-see” places to show them  This quaint town kicks off Switzerland’s incredible Jungfrau region. The famed Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau peaks tower above and it set the stage for various outdoor excursions.

We love to wander the old-town area and admire the unbelievable scenery surrounding us. Before you come, be sure to check out their calendar as they house many festivals throughout the year.

Interlaken hosts the Unspunnenfest once every 12 years celebrating everything Swiss and completed by the ceremonious 83.5kg/184.1 lb stone throwing contest.
