Interlaken - Holiday Tour Packages from India
Interlaken is a small city that is located in the Bernese Highlands Region of central Switzerland. Situated between 2 Alpine Lakes of Brienzersee and Thunersee, the city is a popular base camp for travel and outdoor sightseeing and activities in the surrounding Bernese Oberland Alps. While the place itself is scenic, it serves as a good starting point to explore the neighbouring lakes, mountains and valleys, since it holds all the needed facilities and can be reached easily by car and train from the major cities in Switzerland.
Interesting places to visit in Interlaken
Most Interlaken holiday packages offered include visits to the most popular spots in this destination like Jungfraujoch ( Highest peak in Swiss Alps and commonly referred as ‘Top Of Europe’) . For your vacation, make sure you are going to check out the Höheweg, which is the city’s main street that runs between the Interlaken West and the Interlaken Ost Railway Stations. You find along it many souvenir shops, pastry shops, and the Japanese Garden, a 150-year-old Victoria Jungfrau Grand Hotel. It is also where the Höhematte, a place that allows for a beautiful view of the famous snow-covered Jungfrau Mountain, is located.
Aside from the Höheweg, you should also visit the Jungfrau-Aletsch-Bietschhorn, which is a glaciated UNESCO World Heritage Site above Interlaken in the Bernese Alps, and the Unterseen, which is a small old town near the Interlaken West train station that has several shops and bakeries.
