Mountain vistas and tasty treats await on holidays to Interlaken, where natural wonders and cultural charm come to play.

Incredible Interlaken

A lively town in the Bernese Oberland region of Switzerland, trips to Interlaken balance affordable urban luxury with opportunities for the adventurous. Start the day with a shopping spree and end it at a cosy pavement café, knowing that new heights and new sights are always around the corner.

Streetside saunters

There's plenty to see without looking up. Take home your own delicious Swiss creations from a chocolatier lesson, or stop at Alpenwildpark to see some majestic ibexes. Don't forget to head over to the Rugenbrau Brewery for a taste of regional beers and liquors.

Excitement on lots of levels

Unsurprisingly, Interlaken's a big adventure sports hub with its ice-climbing, river-rafting and even bungee-jumping line-up. Go one step higher and sail through the treetops at the zipline and ropes course at Seilpark, or take to the skies on a helicopter ride over mountain peaks.

Rocky mountain highs

The scenery here's in a league of its own. Cruise around the turquoise pools and waterfalls of Lake Brienz, or admire the serene atmosphere of Lake Thun. A 10-minute rail journey takes you to the summit balcony at Harder Kulm, and there are plenty of links to Jungfraujoch, one of Europe's most famous mountain saddles.
