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.
Take a break from the city and head to Parasailing & Paragliding and Aletsch Glacier. There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Harderkulm, play a few rounds at Golf Club Interlaken-Unterseen, take in the dramatic scenery at Jet Boat Interlaken, and head outdoors with Bumblebee Hanggliding Interlaken.

To see reviews, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Interlaken travel itinerary creator.

San Francisco, USA to Interlaken is an approximately 16-hour combination of flight and train. You'll lose 9 hours traveling from San Francisco to Interlaken due to the time zone difference.
