What to do and see in Interlaken, Canton of Bern: The Best Budget-friendly Things to do

September 15, 2021 Rebbecca Marino

If you’re after a winter sports holiday, you can’t find a more gorgeous place to do it than Interlaken, the popular Swiss resort town. There’s superlative skiing, toboggan rides, miles of sledding tracks (which, like the ski slopes, vary in difficulty), snowboarding… all with amazing views of the mountains. In summer, hike among the ibex at nearby Neiderhorn, or shop for watches in the town’s boutiques.

Harder Kulm

At an altitude of 1,322 m, the Harder Kulm offers the best view of Interlaken, Eiger Mönch and Jungfrau as well as the Thun and Lake Brienz. The palatial restaurant and the Two Lakes Bridge viewing platform are an enticing place to spend time. The cable car, not far from the Interlaken Ost train station on the Harder, has been operational for more than 100 years. The Talstation building has remained without major alterations to the original design as it was in the early years after the turn of the century, and is one of Interlaken's listed buildings. For connoisseurs and those in search of a view, the Harder railway takes just ten minutes to reach the Interlaken Hausberg. The 1,449-metre mountain journey largely goes through the forest, surmounting 731 metres in altitude at an incline of 64%.

From very close to the town center you can take a funicular to the “Top of Interlaken” for stunning views of the 2 lakes and the landscape. It had rained earlier the day we went but had mostly cleared by the time we ventured out. Initially there were scattered clouds below us but they gradually disappeared...and then reappeared and disappeared again. Life in the mountains. A nice restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating and incredible views sits at the top after a short walk from the funicular terminal. The brave can opt to walk back down (2 1/2 hours I think it said) but it would have been slick that day.

Picturesque park in the center of town. Snow capped mountains in the background, stunning flowers in the spring. This is the landing spot for paragliders, and it's very fun to watch!
