Welcome to Interlaken

Sitting high in the snow capped Bernese Alps of Switzerland and nestled between two emerald lakes, you can hardly imagine a more striking backdrop than what lies in Interlaken. The postcard perfect views of majestic mountains, glistening water and the fairytale timber houses make it hard to beat for a scenic setting. The town is a haven of heart pumping adventure whatever season you visit with countless adrenaline-packed activities in the summer and snow sports in the winter.

Our sister hostel Balmer’s is located at the base of the jaw-dropping Jungfrau mountains. For all the best tips and recommendations, use our Interlaken hub ahead of your trip.

  • Bring a rain jacket. Especially if you’re hiking above 1000m where temperatures are much cooler.

  • For the best hiking trails, download the SchweizMobil app to find the best walking trails

  • Enjoy our free tap water, it is the best in the world

  • Tipping isn’t expected in Switzerland so don’t worry about that

  • If you’re on a budget, buy food from the grocery store around the corner from Balmer’s or enjoy a BBQ at our Tent Village
