Top things To do in Interlaken and surrounds

Whilst most visitors to Interlaken are interested in riding the Jungfrau train to the top of the Jungfraujoch, there are many other reasons to include Interlaken in your itinerary.


Interlaken’s own mountain, Harder Kulm, is reached by a funicular and offers stunning views of the surrounding Bernese Alps and Lakes Thun and Brienz.


With Interlaken known as the adventure capital of Europe, there are many activities available for the adventurous - skydiving, paragliding, bungee jumping, canyoning and rafting.

MOUNtain excursions

The most famous of all Interlaken day trips is an excursion to Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe.  There's also Schilthorn, Mannlichen, Grindelwald First and many others to choose from.

Towns and Villages

It may take a little effort to reach the car-free village of Murren but visitors here are rewarded with spectacular views of the Eiger, Jungfrau and Monch and the Lauterbrunnen Valley below.

Beautiful lakes

Set inside the 20 hectare Blausee National Park, the Blue Lake’s unique colour is a result of its source in subterranean springs. Entry to the Park includes a boat ride on the lake in a glass-bottomed boat

Other natural sites

A walking path allows visitors to reach the Giessbach Falls – and walk under them – and there are wonderful views of the waterfalls from the terrace of the historic Grand Hotel Giessbach.
