Holidays to Interlaken
From the restaurant at Harder Klum you may need to pinch yourself how lucky you are to be sitting sipping a drink and looking out over Interlaken, the lakes and the snow topped mountains. The largest ski resort in the area known as the Bernese Oberland, and one of the most well established in Switzerland, Interlaken nestles between Lake Thur and Lake Brienz and is surrounded by the spectacular Eiger, Jungfrau and Mönch mountains. As well as plentiful skiing, there’s the opportunity to take part in a host of winter sport activities, and the resort caters for both families and a younger crowd.
A memorable ski holiday in Interlaken
Within the area of Interlaken there are over 45 cable cars, chair lifts and mountain railways, accessing 200 kilometres of ski runs. With its central location, a holiday to Interlaken means you will have easy access to the top skiing areas of Müreen and Schilthorn, plus the family orientated Beatenberg. Take advantage too of the great cross-country skiing and tobogganing available.
Spend a day away from the slopes and head off on one of the 220 kilometres plus of winter walking trails or even have a go at ice climbing. For something completely different explore the limestone caves of nearby St Beatus Caves and discover stalagmites and waterfalls. There are plenty of touristy shops to be found in Interlaken to stock up on souvenirs, as well as local shops and supermarkets if you’re self catering.
Interlaken is a holiday destination even in summer when sports enthusiasts can go canyon jumping or paragliding. The beautiful mountain landscape is ripe for exploring on foot along the numerous hiking trails, or take it easy with a cruise on one of the lakes.
There’s plenty of laid back and lively après ski to be found off the slopes in Interlaken. Being such a large resort means everyone’s catered for. Enjoy live music and tasty food in Goldener Anker. On Friday evenings put on your dancing shoes and get caught up in an evening of folk music at the Summit restaurant. Steinbock is a low-key tavern where the locals eat, and West End serves homemade Italian food. Get tipsy on cocktails at Top o’Met and get intimate on the cosy dance floor at Positiv Einfach.
