The iconic Swiss resort town of Interlaken provides the gateway to some of Switzerland's most spectacular scenery, most incredible ski resorts & most unbelievable rail journeys. The town is a better value alternative to the nearby ski resort villages of Murren, Wengen or Grindelwald in winter.

For a quick glimpse into the area, see the Interlaken regional map here.

Pros & Cons for Interlaken


  • Convenient transport hub for numerous Swiss ski resorts;
  • Relatively cheap high-end accommodation in winter;
  • Loads of sightseeing & non-ski activities;
  • Extensive range of shops, restaurants, services & markets;
  • Easy to get to from Zurich or Bern;


  • Travel times to & from some of the ski resort bases (particularly Muerren) can make for quite a long day if trying for first tracks;
  • Whilst being surrounded by huge mountains is wonderful, the downside is much of Interlaken is in shadow during winter!

Pro or Con (depending on your perspective!)

  • Not a car friendly area - best to take the train everywhere here.
  • You will have to travel up into mountains to get some sun (nice problem to have);
  • Low elevation so may, or may not, have snow (but will be cold!).

Interlaken Accommodation

The town of Interlaken is perfect for a central location to ski the Jungfrau region & also to save a few pennies. You can stay in a magnificent modern youth hostel near the Interlaken Ost train station, 5-star grand hotels & everything in between.
