A guide for first-time visitors to Interlaken

Located in central Switzerland, Interlaken is a traditional resort town with dense forests, old timber houses, and parkland on both sides of the Aare River. There are also several hiking trails and glaciers in the area.

Harder Kulm

Located in the Jungfrau region of the Bernese Alps, Harder Kulm provides sweeping views of Interlaken, the Eiger, and the surrounding lakes. It is one of the most popular Swiss resorts, and is accessible by funicular railway.

The mountain is 1321 meters high, and offers panoramic views of the surrounding lakes and mountains. It is also home to a restaurant and a viewing platform.

The best way to access Harder Kulm is by using the funicular. The ride takes ten minutes from the city centre to Two Lakes Bridge, and then another 10 minutes from there to the viewing platform. The return journey is free with your ticket.

If you'd rather not take the funicular, you can get to the viewing platform by hiking. It's a steep and challenging climb, but the views are well worth it. The trail is a circular path that is signposted.

Barrel Brauhaus

Located in Interlaken, Switzerland, the Husi Bierhaus is a beer bar that is worth a visit. The restaurant has a nice ambiance, a well-stocked bar, and a staff that is knowledgeable about their selection of beers. It's also home to the one of the best steaks in town.

While there are many bars and pubs in Interlaken, you'll want to consider staying at a hotel or hostel in the heart of the city. Budget hotels cost around 120 CHF per night while hostels run from around 25 to 45 CHF. Most hostels have free Wi-Fi and linens in their dorms.

The best time to visit is during the summer months, when the weather is pleasant and the city is abuzz with activity. The town is full of lakes and outdoor activities. Besides, the city is surrounded by majestic mountains.


Kayak tour of Lake Brienz

Located near Interlaken, Lake Brienz is a great place for kayaking. You can take a guided tour or join a kayaking group. The lake is surrounded by mountains and offers incredible views. You can also enjoy a boat cruise on the lake.

You can choose a half day or full day kayaking tour. The tours are available throughout the summer and winter. The half day tour takes around two hours.

They are able to organize trips abroad as well. The school offers tours in French, German, and English.

Skydive from a helicopter

Taking a helicopter skydive is a once in a lifetime experience. It's a great way to see the city, mountains, and lakes.

The first thing you should know about a helicopter skydive is that it is a bit more expensive. This is because helicopters are more expensive to operate. But, they are incredibly maneuverable, and you can get lost in the scenery as you fly over the Alps. The views from an Interlaken helicopter are nothing short of breathtaking.

If you're interested in skydiving, there are few places better than Interlaken, Switzerland. The awe-inspiring mountains are covered in a thick blanket of snow, and the cooler air temperatures increase visibility.

If you're a novice, you may want to check out a tandem skydive. This is a fun and adrenaline-filled experience. You'll jump with a professional tandem instructor, who will guide you through the procedure. You'll receive a jumpsuit, a leather helmet, and gloves.


Trummelbach Falls

Located in the Jungfrau region, Trummelbach Falls are a series of ten glacier-fed waterfalls. They drain the Eiger, Monch and Jangfrau glaciers. Their imposing appearance and thundering waterfalls have always made them a source of fascination for writers.

The waterfalls can be visited during April to November. During the winter, the falls are covered with snow and ice. On the other hand, in the summer, the volume of water increases. The most beautiful times to see the falls are when they are at their most dramatic.

The waterfalls can be seen from a number of different viewpoints. Visitors can walk up and down a paved path or take a funicular elevator to get closer to the falls. The hike takes about 2.2 miles.

The tunnel-funicular that allows access to the falls was built in 1913. The cost of entry includes the ride. The ride takes about seven minutes.
