If you’ve ever wanted to indulge on a holiday in a mountain resort, the Interlaken is a natural and exceptional choice. Surrounded by breathtaking mountains, lush forest and meadows, not to mention the jeweled tones of Lake Brienz and Lake Thun’s crystal-clear waters -- there is truly no more picturesque resort town than Interlaken. Perfectly situated in central Switzerland, in the region of Bernese Overland, Interlaken is the ultimate dream for visitors who want to relax and get back to nature or to enjoy any number of the popular outdoor recreational activities.

Interlaken has been the go-to for centuries now – the place where you go when you want to surround yourself with some of the most beautiful scenery on earth – but also want to indulge in some of the more pampering experiences while you’re there. Though its always a good idea to spend at least a few days in Interlaken, it still makes an exceptional option for a day trip and, at the very least, a stop as you meander through the scenic drives and Swiss landscape. There are plenty of things to see and do on a visit – one being a stopover at the Harder Alpine Wildlife Park. Here you can see many of the fantastic creatures that live throughout the region, but you’ll definitely want to head over to the overlook that takes you over 1300 meters above the picture-perfect Aare River. From here you’ll have spectacular views of the surrounding region, the lakes and mountains -- there is truly no better vantage point than this overlook! Another option is to take a small railroad up to the impressive Schynige Platte for panoramic views of the Alps, as well as Lake Thun. To say these views are perfection is an understatement – some of the best scenery in the world is found from various vantage points throughout Interlaken.

The quaint mountain villages surrounding Interlaken are downright adorable -- just the type of wooden chalets that you would expect while visiting Switzerland’s rugged outdoors. Enjoy tasting some of the traditional dishes at any of the local restaurants for a full immersive experience!
