Interlaken Tourism
The city's official tourist site has a plethora of information on accommodations, activities, excursions, and more.


Schilthorn (Piz Gloria)
This revolving restaurant and observation deck was featured in the James Bond movie, On Her Majesty's Secret Service. It offers spectacular views and is reached by cablecar from Stechelberg, near Lauterbrunnen.

Schynige Platte
Great mountain views, and not too outrageously expensive. Accessible by cogwheel railway from Wilderswil.

Attractions and activities

Kursaal Interlaken
Interlaken's congress center has a low-stakes casino, a restaurant, space for weddings, afternoon tea dances, concerts, and other events.

This company's activities range from mild-mannered river excursions and horse trekking to bungee jumping, canyoning (sliding down "natural waterslides" in wet suits), and "houserunning," where you go head first down the side of a building.
