    Interlaken is considered the adventure capital of the world, at least that's what I've heard, and it is absolutely beautiful. I'd go back in a heartbeat and have no hesitation about staying in Interlaken.

    Insider Tip:It is expensive, cook in the hostel.

    beautiful city

    the city is very beautiful and the weather is perfect. The only disadvantage is the bus is too few and we always waiting for longer than 20 minutes with lots of people on it.

    Favorite city on this trip so far!

    I loved Interlaken! It was gorgeous, exciting, full of fun things to do, trails to hike, adventures to go on!

    Insider Tip:Take a day to hike from nearby Lauterbrunen (you can take a train there and back for 9 chf roundtrip) to see the waterfalls and then take the gondola to Schilthorn. It's cheaper than Jungfrau, less crowded, and just as beautiful.
