Nestled between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz in the heart of the Jungfrau region, Interlaken became popular for its proximity to the mountains and lakes of the Bernese Oberland region.
Change things up with a short trip to Mont -Bell Grindelwald in Grindelwald (about 30 minutes away). There's lots more to do: take some stellar pictures from Jungfraujoch, admire the sheer force of Trümmelbachfälle, take in the awesome beauty at Maennlichen, and explore the striking landscape at Aletsch Glacier.

To find maps, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, read our Interlaken trip planner.
