Interlaken’s name translates to ‘between lakes’, and that’s exactly where this town can be found: nestled between Lake Brienz and Lake Thun in the very heart of Switzerland. It’s a place of sublime natural beauty and draws hordes of travelers looking to become immersed in the snowy peaks and crystal waters.
The natural scenery of Interlaken makes it the perfect place for adventure sports. Experienced and amateur adrenaline junkies from all over the world descend on the town every summer to experience this place. Climbing craggy cliffs, fighting through deep canyons, coursing down wild rivers on thin rafts, paragliding hundreds of meters over town, and tumbling off cliff edges attached only to a bungee cord, it’s all available here. 
It’s not all about pushing limits. Interlaken also offers boundless opportunities for hiking the surrounding trails, swimming and boating in the lakes, and simply enjoying the picturesque beauty of the Swiss countryside. The St Beatus Caves where Saint Beatus, according to legend, drove away a dragon, are now home to the much safer activity of caving tours and the site of a small museum. Not far from town is the Jungfrau Railway, which runs from the Kleine Scheidegg to the highest railway station in Europe, flying past breathtaking views of the alps along the way.
After, or perhaps instead of, a long day of adventure, Interlaken contains a rich array of pubs and bars, where tired backpackers converge to drink steins of beer and discuss the day’s activities. Interlaken is a town to try new things, meet new people, and feel alive, all with the stunning Swiss Alps as an ever-present backdrop.
