It's easy to see why Interlaken is one of Switzerland's most beloved resort towns: location, location, location. Setbetween two sparkling lakes (Lake Thun and Lake Brienz), this Alpine jewel boasts three impressive "rocks," the mighty Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau mountains. Here's your chance to explore Interlaken's hidden gems on a walk crafted to your whims.
A good place to start is with a stroll down the Hoheweg, Interlaken's main street. Be sure to ask your guide for recommendations on the best spots for Swiss chocolate, cheese, and local beer for later sorties. You might also take a turn around Interlaken Castle, formerly an Augustinian monastery, or Kursall Gardens, where you can check your watch's accuracy against its much-admired flower clock. Even flowers bow to Swiss precision!
Wherever you go, know that you're following in the footsteps of some very illustrious guests. The most famous 18th-century visitor was the poet Johann Wolfgang Goethe, and in the 19th century, Lord Byron and Felix Mendelssohn each visited often. Commenting on the scenery around Interlaken, Mendelssohn once wrote that it was "the finest of all in this unbelievably beautiful country."
And it's true. While Interlaken features the charming gingerbread architecture of a traditional Swiss village, its breathtakingAlpine beautyis the real attraction. Even in the middle of town, you'll find Hohematte Park, a meadow lush with flowers. Stop here to soak up the views of the surrounding peaks. But, look out, it's also a favorite landing spot for paragliders.
Apple of my (bulls) eye?
Thanks to The Lone Ranger, we can all hum the galloping "DUM dada DUM da da DUM DUMDUM" finale to Rossini's William Tell Overture, called "The March of the Swiss Soldiers." But let's unmask the Swiss folk hero who inspired the music.No one really knows if Tell shot an apple off his son's head (or even existed!), but one thing's for sure: the legend has enduring appeal. Every summer at Interlaken's William Tell Open-Air Theater, 170+ amateur actors (plus horses, cows, and goats) retell the Tell tall tale. It's a tradition that's being going strong since 1912. Now that's a hit!
