Why Visit Interlaken, Switzerland

The town which has long seduced travelers, nobility and even members of the royal family, charming Interlaken is a Swiss destination that would be unfair to avoid.

The city's name is literally translated as the one "between lakes" which is the absolute truth. Surrounded by the majestic mountain peaks, Interlaken is situated in a paradise location in between the emerald Thun and Brienz Lakes, thus has nothing in common with the big city's hustle.

One of the best ways to admire the surroundings and undoubtedly one of the most fascinating adventures on the Interlaken tour is going on a train ride along the Interlaken Line. Featuring some stunning panoramas, scenic backdrops of the mountains and even a 7 kilometers-long (4.35 mi) tunnel, it takes you to the highest railway station in Europe. The awe-inspiring journey will definitely be one to remember for the rest of your life. 

Enhance your Interlaken travel itinerary with a day trip to St. Beatus Caves, where you can admire the immense power of nature, witness the Giessbach Falls or practice a wide range of outdoor activities. 

Explore the beautiful lakes, the scenic landscapes, medieval architecture or fun outdoor pursuits, whichever activity you choose, there is no doubt that the all-year-round resort won't leave you dissatisfied.
