Watch out for expensive internet at the internet cafe in town. 18 Swiss Francs for one hour roughly equals $15 US dollars.
Wowzers… a couple of hours of that would pay for my entire monthly internet service at home.
Yes, Switzerland is freaking expensive.over 5 years ago
I have traveled to Interlaken 2 times to camp and go whitewater rafting, and both times have been absolutely amazing!!! The drive into the town is somewhat difficult, the mountain pass takes about an hour and is VERY steep, make sure you get there before dark. We found a great campsite about 10 minutes outside of Interlaken called Stechelberg, it is the most beautiful place I’ve ever been. Located in a valley, you wake up each morning to the sound of waterfalls and the site of a beautiful glacier. The facilities are great (bring some euro change for a shower) and there is even a barbeque area 30 seconds down the road. In addition there is a cable car nearby as well as an awesome waterfall system inside of the mountain (definitely recommend seeing this)!! Pictures don’t do this place justice AT ALL, it is like a fairy tale!!
We went through Swissraft for our whitewater rafting and were not disappointed. The river was amazing, definitely an adrenaline rush, and the guides were very capable and personable. If I still lived in Europe i would go for a third time!!over 5 years ago
Interlaken is situated in between Thunersee and Brienzsee. A great town to stay and take small day trips to the beautiful country sides around. Specially places around the lakes like Spiez, Thun, Isaldwald. Also places in the valley like Gimmeldwald, Murren, Wangen, Lauterbrunnen…the list goes on.
