Excursion destinations Interlaken
The Jungfrau Region around Interlaken offers numerous exciting excursion destinations, which you can reach in different ways.
By the way, with the Jungfrau Travel Pass you can enjoy free travel on the mountain railroads to all attractions within three to eight days. The Winterlaken Card
On the Harder Kulm, Interlaken's local mountain, you can experience the most beautiful sunsets and look forward to plenty of photo opportunities. At an altitude of 1,300 meters, there is a viewing platform on which a castle-like restaurant is enthroned. The Harder funicular goes directly from the train station in Interlaken Ost to the Harder Kulm.
The Schilthornbahn runs as an aerial cableway in three successive sections from Stechelberg to the Schilthorn. The revolving restaurant Piz Gloria at 3000 m above sea level is by far the most popular destination on the Schilthorn. You can get a little closer to the overwhelming mountain panorama via various walks, provided you have a head for heights. On the Schilthorn you will also learn a lot about the James Bond film "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" and its actors. It was filmed here in 1969.
The idyllic Schynige Platte is also a popular excursion destination. A fragrant alpine garden with over 700 alpine plants awaits you here at 2000 m above sea level, as well as magnificent panoramic hiking trails. A historic steam locomotive overcomes a whole 1383 meters of altitude on the 7.26 km route. The mountain station is located at 1967 m above sea level. The average gradient of the railroad line is 19 %, within the Gräti tunnel it is even 25 %.
The Grindelwald First, on the other hand, attracts visitors with a cliff walk, the crystal-clear Bachalpsee, a 700-square-meter playground at the intermediate gondola station Bort, and the Restaurant First, where you can indulge in regional delicacies on the sun terrace in the midst of the fantastic mountain panorama.
Unforgettable are excursions to the heavily over-firned Jungfraujoch at an altitude of 3,466 meters. It is not for nothing that almost a million people visit Europe's highest railroad station every year, which can be reached by the Jungfraujochbahn. Visitors can expect a breathtaking view of some of the four-thousand-meter peaks in the Bernese Alps. Created by two mountain guides, the unique 1,000 square meter ice palace is also very impressive.
Visitors are taken up to the 2,350-meter Brienzer Rothorn by the Brienzer Rothorn cable car and a subsequent aerial cableway. Below the summit there is a picturesque ice lake and the Rothorn Kulm inn, which also offers rooms for overnight stays.
Grottoes of the St. Beatus Cave
Where there are mountains, there are also impressive natural spectacles. The stalactites and mystical grottoes of the St. Beatushöhle above Lake Thun were created over millions of years. A prepared, illuminated path leads about a kilometer through gorges, colorful halls and past underground lakes. Pilgrimage routes run from several boat stations to the cave.
The Giessbach comes from the Faulhorn area and plunges first over 14 steps and then 500m into the depths. The Giessbach Falls are located on the southeastern shore of Lake Brienz. A hiking trail leads to the waterfall. You can also walk directly under the waterfall via this path. The upper steps of the waterfall were already named after Bernese heroes in the 19th century.
How to spend three perfect days in Interlaken
Interlaken is one of those places that are on the priority list of almost every foreign visitor. And for good reason. The town "between the lakes" is a very popular tourist destination. It is an ideal starting point for trips to the Bernese Alps and other interesting, exciting and impressive places
To help you plan your trip, we have put together this short travel guide. We give you some ideas of what you can do in Interlaken.
Day 1: Visit Jungfraujoch - aka Top of Europe
Yes, it is expensive to visit Jungfraujoch. Yes, it gets busy up there. And yes, with over 8000 mountain peaks across Switzerland, you are very likely to find a more affordable place with a spectacular view.
But let us assure you: Jungfraujoch is worth every cent!
Just the ride up itself to Europe’s highest railway station will leave you breathless. It’s an absolute piece of art. To think they built this steep cogwheel railway through the massif of Mount Mönch over 100 years ago is impressive, to say the least.
Once you reach the top, you will be amazed by the views over the Aletsch Glacier, Switzerland’s largest glacier. The highly recommended one-hour walk to Mönchsjoch hut will spoil you with even more high alpine photo opportunities. And the peaceful atmosphere in the snow will likely blow you away all year round.
But enough with the spoilers. To find out more, we have specifically put together an article with 12 tips for your first trip to Jungfraujoch.
Once you get back from your visit, we recommend you take it easy for the rest of the day, as the altitude and the thin air have a tendency to make you very tired. If you still have it in you, catch the funicular to Harder Kulm, also known as Top of Interlaken. You’ll be met with even more spectacular views over Lake Brienz, Lake Thun and the complete alpine panorama of the Jungfrauregion.
Alternatively, take a relaxed stroll along the River Aare or one of the lakes before settling for a nice dinner in Interlaken.

Day 2: Action, views and narrow gorges
Try to rise early today and catch the train to Brienz, which takes roughly 20 minutes to get to. Right next to the train station, you’ll see the steam train that’s going up to Brienzer Rothorn.
Visit Brienzer Rothorn in the morning
Today, you’re visiting the highest point of the Canton Lucerne at 2350 m.a.s.l. Getting up to Brienzer Rothorn on this historical steam train takes just over an hour and is something you won’t likely forget anytime soon. The views awaiting you here are, once again, spectacular. But completely different from the ones you saw on day one at Jungfraujoch.
The crystal clear and turquoise Lake Brienz will accompany you all the way. And on a clear day, you’ll get a view over 690 Swiss mountain peaks at the top. This is the perfect place to enjoy a nice lunch before heading back down.
The two activities we recommend in the afternoon are a speedy jetboat ride on Lake Brienz and the visit of the impressive Aare Gorge. Which one you do first depends on your timing and your preferences.
Swiss Activities Offer:
Afternoon: Visit the Aare Gorge
The Aare Gorge is a 1400 metres long and 200 metres deep natural wonder. Through well secured and easy to walk paths and tunnels, you’ll be passing through this narrow gorge. For roughly 45 minutes, you’ll enjoy the cool temperatures and the mystical atmosphere by the River Aare.
You can visit the gorge every day between April and October, even if the weather isn’t too good. The large water masses are even more impressive on a rainy day or after a couple of days with heavy rain.
Getting from Brienz to Aareschlucht Ost station takes 25 minutes on the train. Get off at Aareschlucht Ost, walk through the gorge and jump on the train back to Brienz at Aareschlucht West. In case you’re travelling by car, you’ll find parking lots at both entrances.
Jetboat ride on Lake Brienz
Going on a jetboat ride is something you just cannot miss if you’re into speedy spins and an exciting adventure on a turquoise lake.
Your local captain will take you across the lake to the impressive Giessbach waterfalls and tell you interesting facts about this region. On the way there, you’ll be doing spins and turns on the lake. Your chances of getting wet in the process are just under 100%. But don’t worry, you’ll be equipped with waterproof pants, a jacket and a lifejacket.
The jetboat leaves its base in Bönigen next to Interlaken. So catch the train in Brienz back to Interlaken and hop on the bus to Bönigen.

Day 3: Even more action and views
Have you ever jumped out of a helicopter and hurtled toward the ground for 40 seconds? If not, today is your day. Grab a breakfast (as light as possible) and make your way to Wilderswil. Here, Christian and his crew are passionate about running a business called Skydive Interlaken.
The Jump Masters are all incredibly experienced and some of them have already completed up to 13'000 jumps. You're definitely in good hands here.
After a short safety briefing you will be taken to the nearby helicopter base. From here you will enjoy a panoramic flight over the Bernese Alps until you have reached the right altitude for your jump. Leon and Dennis from our team dared to do this jump during our first team week in May 2022. Read more about Leon's experience in his article about skydiving in Interlaken.
Falling towards the ground at 200 km/h may be a bit extreme for you at best. If you still want to experience Interlaken from a bird's eye view, you can book one of the many paragliding flights around Interlaken instead. In any case, we recommend that you leave the ground at least once during your stay in Interlaken and take a sightseeing flight.
Swiss Activities Offers:
Enjoy a scenic cruise on Lake Thun in the afternoon
Chances are, your adrenaline level will need some time to readjust after your crazy morning. That’s why the afternoon is all about taking it slow. Hop on one of the passenger ships on Lake Thun and enjoy a very relaxing and slow cruise on one of the prettiest lakes in Switzerland.
As you get to Beatenbucht, get off board and walk up to Saint Beatus Caves. These caves are fascinating to visit. A well-built and illuminated path leads you roughly one kilometre into the massif of Mount Niederhorn. On the way, you’ll be exploring incredibly old natural wonders like stalactites, stalagmites and underground streams.
Once you’re done with your visit, either catch the bus back to Interlaken or get on the passenger ship if your schedule allows.
