Interlaken: Exploring the Best of Switzerland Scenery

Interlaken is the place to explore the natural beauty of Central Switzerland. This city is filled with tourist attractions. There are a plethora of things that you can do and see in here. It offers an endless variety of walk, outdoor excursion, and climbs. If you are planning on visiting Interlaken anytime soon, here are a few things that you should do.

Harder Klum

To get a view of the entire city and the lakes, visit Harder Klum. This is a funicular climb beside Alpine Wildlife Park and beyond the bridge on top of the Aare River. The restaurant at the top offers a panoramic view. I also caught sight of the Jungfrau area. I descended along the forest path through the Hardermannli lookout path. Drop in at the Wildlife Park to catch a glimpse of ibexes and marmots.

Hohematte Park

This park covers an area of 14 hectares and is situated at the heart of the city. It is an open space and this is a great example of outstanding town planning. Along with its side, you will find Kursaal along with a café and theatre. This park is also a landing spot for the hand gliders. If you are visiting during the winter, you will find the ice-skating ring which is suitable for beginners.

Lake Brienz

This is to be found on the eastern part of Interlaken. It has a backdrop of beautiful mountains. I found steamboats chugging along the lake. Now, there is an armada of 5 vessels from the first half of the twentieth century. Giessbach is a destination around the lake that you need to check out.

Lake Thun

I also made a visit to Lake Thun. The prevailing breeze makes it perfect for the sailors and the windsurfers. However, I found the shore to be covered in wood. During the summertime, you will be able to use the woodland that is dotted with bathing spaces.
