Individual journey to the Interlaken region. Interlaken is located in the Bernese Oberland on an alluvial plain between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz. Overlooked by the three mighty mountains Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, the town is the ideal starting point to reach the longest ice stream in Europe: the Aletsch Glacier. Overnight stay in Interlaken.

Highlights: Harder Kulm viewpoint, Lake Thun/Brienz.
