    My thoughts on Interlaken, Switzerland after a 2-day stay

    Interlaken is a very cool place to visit for people who are more relaxed about their activities and like outdoors-y type things. My only regret was that I did not pack my boots so I had to miss out on all the hiking in the area but I will definitely remember them for next time.

    Insider Tip:There are a LOT of Indian and Korean places to eat, if you want something a little more local for lunch the Happy Inn usually has a reasonably priced (12-14 Franks) 3-course lunch special.

    Amazing city! There is so much to do here if you are the adventurous type. Its like the city gate to Jungfrau and plenty of other hikes and climbing and such. Cable cars and trains come out of here. Beautiful city, but expensive, make sure you make dinner from the grocery store. And do not go to Hooters, way over priced and not that great. Amazing views, I want to move there!

    Insider Tip:Do all the adventurous things you can!

    Being in Switzerland means that you're going to be second guessing whether it's worth the amount of money you're spending. But you're not going to see mountains like that anywhere else.

    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.
