Interlaken

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.
Attractions like Parasailing & Paragliding and Harderkulm make great kid-friendly stops. There's lots more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Jungfraujoch, get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour, have some family-friendly fun at Seilpark Interlaken, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Maennlichen.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read our Interlaken road trip planner.

Doha, Qatar to Interlaken is an approximately 12-hour flight. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Doha to Interlaken due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Doha in July, expect Interlaken to be cooler, temps between °C and °C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Sat) early enough to go by car to Zurich.
