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.
On the 20th (Tue), race across the water with a speed boat tour and then take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Jungfraujoch. On the 21st (Wed), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: pause for some serene contemplation at Schlosskirche, take in the dramatic scenery at Trümmelbachfälle, then glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and finally get your game on at Seilpark Interlaken.
