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.
Get out of town with these interesting Interlaken side-trips: Lucerne (Rigi, Lake Lucerne, & more). There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Jungfraujoch, look for gifts at Huggler Holzbildhauerei, take in the dramatic natural features at Aletsch Glacier, and admire the sheer force of Trümmelbachfälle.

To see where to stay, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, read Interlaken trip maker app .

Traveling by car from Zurich to Interlaken takes 2 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Zurich in December: high temperatures in Interlaken hover around 1°C and lows are around -4°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri) early enough to drive back home.
