In Interlaken natural beauty beats out the cultural.
Hence the name, Interlaken, the city is sandwiched between the crystal-clear waters of two surrounding lakes - Brienz and Thun to the west. Embracing the famous mountainous trio "Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau", Interlaken lies at the gateway to all scenic vistas of the region.
As one of the most spectacular places in the world, Interlaken is ready to experience with Booked.net. From cheap hotels in Interlaken to luxury offers, you can find them all at our website. Our listings include maps, photos and secure forms on each hotel.
Even though the first-hand impression of the city is rather rough, but Interlaken makes it for the beauty of rocky mountain ranges. The dramatic setting lifted Interlaken to prominence as the oldest and the most popular tourist resort in Switzerland.
Living mainly from tourism, Interlaken adopted several renewal projects to supplement what is born from natural beauty with the cultural. The best reflection of the change is ''Höheweg" promenade. Spanning the West and East end of Interlaken it goes beyond panoramic views, but offers a tight package of cultural diversity. There expensive shops with Swiss watches share space with cheap, but no less attractive street cafes.
Other attractions include;
- Jungfrau-Aletsch-Bietschhorn, a UNESCO treasured site in the Bernese Alps
- Unterseen sits in the Interlaken's neighborhood and has several shops and bakeries
- Kursaal, an entertainment area with casino and the flower clock
- The Höheweg occupies more than 35 acres of land lined with all kinds of attractions
The city was founded to sustain the Augustinian monks who established their monastery in the area in 1133. The small town was of little interest until the early 1960s when Bradenburgers fell for the beauty of the mountainous region. Since then Interlaken served as a base for musicians, painters and poets seeking inspiration.
Throughout its existence Interlaken became very touristy with new comers overwhelming the city-natives. The city has a population of 5,389 residents speaking different languages like German and Italian due to the intensive foreign flux in the city.
